Roosevelt elk rut in Oregon
A wild Roosevelt elk displays for a female as they stand in a field at a wildlife viewing area near Reedsport on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2016. With the start of the mating season, the large bull elk was keeping a close eye on the females in the herd. Elk bulls generally weigh between 700 and 1100 pounds.
