My Elk Photography Experience
The big bull elk are usually out and about in the fall rounding up a harem of ladies for themselves. So, this is the time to be out there photographing them. The three best areas are Rocky Mountain National Park, Yellowstone/Teton National Parks and the Cataloochee area in North Carolina.
Elk photography is really a lot of fun. You need a long telephoto lens so you can stay a safe distance away. The bugling by the bulls for calling in the cows is extremely entertaining. Chasing away the younger bulls trying to steal a cow from the harem is fascinating to watch.
Facts About Elk
The elk (Cervus elaphus canadensis) is the largest and most advanced subspecies of red deer (Cervus elaphus) and is found in North America and in the high mountains of Central Asia. A newborn Rocky Mountain elk calf weighs 35 pounds. A bull can weigh 700 pounds with a height of 5 feet at the shoulder. An elk cow can weigh 500 pounds with a height of 4.5 feet at the shoulder.
