With only a handful more weeks left in the summer, I'm getting pretty excited for another fall rut season in the high country with the iconic elk of the Rocky Mountains. Mating seasons find the heards gathering to begin their annual retreat from the tundra, with bulls staking claims on the wandering cows in hopes of keeping them together as his personal mating group.

Royalty comes from a fine September evening just above treeline as I came across a large bull lording over his harem of a few dozen cows. He was granted the title 'Royal' due to his impressive rack of antlers, as being a 6x6, or 12 point bull, earned him this regal title. Quite a display a he pranced around, bugling his dominance and letting the many cows know he planned on keeping them from the many younger rouges circling the herd.
