#38,255.03704 Bull Elk digging dirt with antlers in aspen meadow
Bull elk digging and raking dirt and grass with his large antlers, in an aspen meadow (Populus tremuloides). Nothing compares to the magnificence of a stately North American bull elk in the autumn during the rut (breeding season). Some Native Americans called them Wapiti (which, I’m told, is Shawnee for “white rump.”). North America’s elk are similar to Europe’s stag (red deer), and Europeans tend to call N. Am. elk "moose." Whatever you call them, bull elk that strut with 40# antlers held high are magnificent to see.
