I understand your disbelief I felt the same way.
It was my first find this spring only 3 inches protruded from the moss .   I lifted it up and it justkept coming. Believe me or not bit I saw a buck at least 150 in the general area 2 years ago

So the experts say elk .
How do you confirm the species of an antler (mule deer blacktail whitetail elk)?
I've spent quite a bit of time in this area and have never seen an elk or sign of an elk. I wish there were elk here it would save me some gas money. When I get time I'll try and find the other side.
