Bull Tule Elk in Velvet, Point Reyes National Seashore

This 6×7 bull is probably the largest one I’ve seen on the Tomales Peninsula.  However, you won’t see him in the elk enclosure.  He and four other bulls live outside the enclosure.  They escaped some time ago and I don’t think there is any plan to try to capture them and return them to the preserve.   I think this is the same individual I posted on this blog roaming around inside a corral at the Kehoe Ranch months ago.  I’ve seen him on his own several times over the past year.  The other four seem to stay together.
