Guest with trophy antelope.Rocky Mountain elk are one of the most majestic and popular western big game animals. They are one of four current subspecies of elk in North America (Rocky Mountain, Manitoban, Roosevelt, and Tule). Rocky Mountain elk are the most plentiful subspecies as they inhabit 22 states, but are mostly abundant in the Rocky Mountain States. There they are growing rapidly and each Rocky Mountain State has a very strong elk herd.

As far as body size goes, the Rocky Mountain elk is the second smallest elk subspecies, ahead of the Tule elk, but behind the Roosevelt and the Manitoban. A mature Rocky Mountain elk bull can weigh between 500 and 1000 pounds with the average weight being around 700 pounds. A mature bull will measure 5 feet at the shoulder and 8 feet from nose to tail.

Elk are the second largest species of North American deer, only the moose is larger. Luckily for hunters, the Rocky Mountain subspecies possesses the largest antlers. Their antlers take approximately 90 to 140 days to mature and can weigh from 20 to 40 pounds on a big mature bull.

In many states, the best trophy elk are found in very hard to draw limited entry units which can take many years of applying to finally draw a tag, but many great trophy bulls are also harvested in some of the general season units each year.
