ELK what a fascinating animal..we usually travel around WESTERN CANADA and find bulls in rut.dangerous also as they will come after you etc if you encroach on their comfort zone. Again harassing and interfering is illegal and wardens are usually around all day watching the interface..we use 200/400 lenses so we are at least 60 metres or more form the bulls..calling is illegal and patience is a must.usually we go after the opportunities in SEPT/OCTNational PARKS are best massive bulls and often harems of 15 cows.caution is the buzz word with these magnificent creaturesDUSAN
