In 2015, a video of a large male elk with a gorgeous rack caught people’s attention, and now, it has been making the rounds on the internet again. 

According to Lee Cox, who uploaded the video on his YouTube channel, they found this beautiful wildlife in the middle of the forest during their hunting trip in Cimarron, Colorado. He added that it was as big as 525 inches while its antlers measure 75 inches wide. Pretty magnificent, isn’t it?

The Largest Elk Herd in North America

Colorado’s beauty goes above and beyond. It is filled with so many stunning spaces and places – from its breathtaking landscapes and towering mountains. In fact, it was voted as the state “with the most beautiful scenery.”

In addition to that, the state in the Mountain West boasts the largest elk herd in North America. There are an estimated of 283,000 elk roaming around the landscape in Colorado. This only means that it is the king when it comes to the possibility of hunting elks, the most sought-after big game animals you’ll be able to find in the United States.
