ABOUT

Sporting a rack of antlers more than ten feet wide, this large and powerful elk stands taller than a human at the shoulder.

Sometimes known as the giant elk or the tundra elk, the elk is a large and particularly ill-tempered member of the deer family. The elk stands more than 7 feet tall at the shoulder, and its massive rack of antlers can span 12 feet or more. It can easily weigh 1,500 pounds or more.

An elk is one of the many large and dangerous prey animals common in the continent’s northern plains and forests. It can deliver an extremely powerful charge—few creatures can match its mix of speed, strength, and natural armament. Some of the tribes of the tundra have been known to domesticate the elk and use the beast as a mount; it is easily as strong as a good-sized horse, and is much harder to spook or startle.
