Limpy in the Evening


During my recent trip to the Pennsylvania elk range a good number of bulls were frequenting the Winslow Hill area with an old bull, known in the Pa. elk photographic community as "Limpy", carrying the most impressive rack.  The following shots were taken during the course of one evening when he was pursuing a very trusting collared cow.
 






 
It has been quite a privilege to have photographed this impressive trusting animal for the last five years.  Hopefully he will be around for a few more seasons.

Spectacular photos as always. He's so majestic. Hope he survives for a long while yet.

Limpy is a very handsome elk.
Is he protected there? Or do they hunt in that area?

Gorgeous shots! Limpy is a beautiful animal with a magnificent rack, but I wish it didn't make him such a tempting target for a hunter.
