These Bull Elk (wapiti) were grazing hillside and I assume they must be use to humans like the Moutain Sheep in the area or they would have fled our appearance. Spotted around the back trails of Custer Park/Black Hills of South Dakota.
I believe they are the Rocky Mountain Type.
This is the cleanest summer shots I have ever taken of them.
Years ago when coming out of a fly-fishing adventure where we could hear the Elk bugling in the morning - a herd of them number close to 100 ran through the woods about 30 yards in front of us - how they never caught those antlers on the trees I'll never know - extremely graceful!
