Bull Elk in Rocky Mountain National Park

You hear him bugle, and you know he's rounding up his harem for the rut season on the Alpine Tundra. This Bull Elk is the largest I've ever seen in the wild carrying an impressive 12-point rack on his head. His distinct mating call causes every cow to stop and take notice of her Bull.
