Northern Wildlife - Elk in Yukon

This page is dedicated to the elk that live around us. Go to this
other page for pictures of other wildlife, such as bears, moose, bison, wolves, etc.

We share our area with an elk herd so I have many pictures of elk and some video of
elk bugling in September 2015.
