Ahead of the Game

Subject: Elk
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Hunting season is at its peak, and this impressive herd of Rocky Mountain elk must work constantly to stay ahead of hoards of hunters all-too-familiar with the herd's annual migration patterns. Each time a rifle shot echoes across the valley floor, the elk pick up their pace in the opposite direction. For these few weeks each year, survival requires that they stay ahead of the game.
