Our Texas elk hunters have experienced good opportunities for harvesting a nice bull elk. Many of our mature bulls will match what is currently coming out of the Rocky Mountain states without all the hassle; no state-wide draw, mostly comfortable weather, etc.
Elk are large animals. Male elk have large, usually six-pointed antlers that are shed each year, usually in late winter and throughout spring. The hair on their neck is long and shaggy. Their fur is light brown and darker on their head, neck, legs, and belly. Elk have a large, white rump patch.
