Weighing up to 700 pounds and standing over six feet tall, Rocky Mountain Elk bulls cut an imposing figure. Throw in a massive 12-point rack and put that bull on a hill above you bugling and it gets your attention real quick.
This bull was standing watch in the #Colorado forest over his harem of about 15 cows and calves. The sound of another nearby bull bugling put him on high alert and he began patrolling the area giving his own warning call as he did.
