As prevalent as Elk are in the fall in Yellowstone, I thought finding calves would be as easy as finding buffalo calves. Fortunately I local friend and photographer warned me these little guys are hard to find as the cows keep them hidden away in the thick brush. Elk calves have almost no scent when born, so as long as they are out of sight, they are difficult for predators to find. Even so, up to two-thirds of the new calves in Yellowstone are killed by predators, mostly wolves and bears. I was lucky to find this cute little guy!
