Elk River Fight

This is impressive — a pair of bull elk have a bit of a set-to in the Madison River in Yellowstone National Park. It’s from a DVD of which I have very little additional information. It’s spectacular, though, to see the two bulls fighting briefly in the river:

Couple things to look for. The bull with the larger rack appears to be injured before the fight. He’s limping on his right foreleg before and after. And, I got a bit of a chuckle when the young buck tried to come up and pick another fight then appeared to think twice when he saw how large that bull was.

I need to go elk hunting. Or, as my dad says, “Take my rifle for a walk in the woods.”
