Camping with a Bull Elk!

While camping (in a TENT) in Jasper National Park, we were 'honored' with the rather intimidating presence of this rather large bull elk who was definitely beginning to show signs of being in fall rut!  Usually, at least once a day, he would stroll, storm or saunter behind our campsite ... about 30ft from our tent!  He had his harem of 'girls' usually with him and definitely shared with us, his ability to bugle!  


  1. Stunning as usual! I would have had a heart attack and never got the picture :) Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks T1 ... I just happened to be lucky that he decided to visit our campsite! ... I think! Haha! He was big!
