2D is the largest he has ever been, but it seems that he is one of those elk that will never be a real contender. Although it is possible that he will be a late bloomer so as to speak and suddenly skyrocket in size, I do not expect this to happen. I first photographed him about 2008 and he is not a great deal larger now. One need only see a mature bull up close to fully realize the difference between them and the second tier bulls.

Whatever the species, the outdoors is a place that never ceases to amaze and there is no better way to appreciate the beauty of nature than to be afield with a camera.
