Oh to be in YNP in the fall and hear those magnificent animals bugling
up the cows.

In the day - Elke Sommer would summon bugling from many a rutty male. Even in the autumn.


I'll just clear my throat...............

I saw a nice group of 7 elk when I drove through Yellowstone in July. All were females, or at least none of them had antlers. I wonder where all the males are.

Probably at the pharmacy picking up their Viagra refills.

I was fishing the Firehole at Biscuit Basin in mid-June working my way down stream and taking a bunch of trout in the trough at the far bank when a cow elk crashed into the river just below me. She forded the river and tried to exit on the far bank but kept failing as the water was too deep so she kept drifting down stream to a place where she could climb out. The cow fouled my honey hole but it was worth it to observe that moment.
I've seen big bull elk (they are surprisingly huge) grazing between tents at Madison campground and it astonishes me that people will get right up close to take a picture. If one of them took off running the camper would be flattened like a pancake and possibly mangled by those antlers.

I guess I'm not sure how to distinguish elk from deer. I think male mule deer can get pretty big.

If you scroll down this page you'll see adjacent photos of a Bull Elk and a Mule Deer Buck:

YNP Mammals

Mule deer are supposedly common in YNP but I haven't seen many and usually only just after dawn or on a back country hike. Elk, however, are plentiful in the meadows off the roadways, especially in the Fall when the bulls are gathering up their harems.

And then there are
the Yellowstone bison,
acting as if they own the place.

Hell's Bells.
