There's a man with a gun over there
A tellin' me, I got to beware"

When hunters hunt elk, they avert their eyes from the prey. All the predators of elk (mountain lion, bear, wolf, coyote, man) have skulls with eyes facing forward. To fool or confuse the elk, a hunter will not look directly at an elk with both eyes.

Hard to imagine Winogrand out on a hunt but if he were, this could have been his lucky shot.

What an odd photograph. Does the collar protect the animal in some way, as the gent with the gun (if that is a gun?) does not seem to be paying any attention to the animal.
