10/10/14 4:23pm. A 6x6 is a "Royal". This guy had a harem of about 25 females. Upper Beaver Meadows, RMNP. The rut is in progress. This bull was very alert to competitive bulls in the vicinity of "his" females. Canon 5Dmk3, Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM, f/5.6, 1/500s, ISO 800, lens focal length 400mm.

Little, puny, hominids in prehistoric times had no chance of killing a bull elk. Some were probably gored trying if they ever came close, which they could not because the Neanderthals had short legs and thick skulls.
