This majestic 8x7 bull elk put on quite a show while he herded his harem into the timber as I shot this image from about 100 yards away. He's the herd bull working a small herd at the south end of Boxley Valley. The herd has been in the barn field for several days and consistently there during the first and last hours of daylight. It's an easy viewing, although not often at this short distance. Expect to see them at anywhere from 150-300 yards.
