These bull elk were photographed in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. In late winter, the elk begin to drop their antlers as their new antlers begin to grow. This younger bull was trying to act tough against the larger bulls that had already dropped their antlers. One larger bull got frustrated and they both reared up and kicked at each other since the larger bull didn't have antlers to fend off the bull that was annoying him. The larger bull then chased this younger bull off and went back to feeding.
