Arizona Elk

Elk: This big game called elk is also called American elk or wapiti, a large antlered deer that once roamed the temperate regions of North America but is now limited to the northwestern United States {including Arizona} and Canada, where elk hunting trips are planned regularly; although some other states in the U.S. do allow elk hunting by guides and outfitters. This animal is one of the larges deer in the world, exceeded in size only by the North American moose. Elk hunts were once a large part of the American Indians lives as it provided for supplies from the elk’s meat, skins, and teeth. Now greatly reduced in numbers in some parts of North America, most of those areas are protected in national parks and wildlife refuges. While other areas like Arizona have elk hunting seasons that allow outfitters and guides to advertise hunts and trips for this big game animal.

The elk is a handsome, grayish-brown, hoofed mammal with a short tail, dark chestnut mane, and a straw-colored rump patch. About 5 feet {1.5 meters} high at the shoulder, it can weigh from 500 to 1000 pounds {225 – 450 kg}. The adult bull has magnificent branching antlers with a 5 foot span and is considered the trophy of this big game animal by the Arizona hunting guides and outfitters. The antlers are also the pride of the hunter going home from a planned elk hunt or trip who will most likely display it somewhere in his home. The antlers of this big game animal are shed in winter and grown anew each spring. The loud bugle call of the bulls can be heard during mating season to signal their challenge for possession of the female herds. Two bulls charge, clash horns, and fierce battles follow. To the victor goes the harem, which numbers from 5 to 20, or even as many as 60 cows.

The term elk has been associated with various members of the deer family. Originally, it applied to the largest deer of Europe and Asia, Alces alces, closely related to the Norht American moose, A. americanus. It is now also applied loosely to several deer in the genus Cervus, including the three species of American elk, C. CanadensisC. merriami, and C.nannodes; the red deer of Europe and Asia, C. elaphus; and the sambar deer of Southeast Asia, C. unicolor.

The prehistoric Irish elk, Megaceros giganteus, which became extinct during the Pleistocene epoch, was related to the fallow deer. It was found in Ireland, Great Britain, central and northern Europe, and western Asia. The Irish elk measured 6 feet {1.8 meters} at the shoulder, and its palmated antlers, which spanned more than 11 feet {3.3 meters} are the largest recorded. Can you imagine what a great experience it would have been for an elk hunting outfitter or guide to be able to offer this big game on hunts
