SUMMER PRINCE

Add to Cart
Bull elk continuously graze during the spring and summer months to obtain the nutrients required to grow new antlers. Antler growth is important to elk since this impressive headgear identifies a bull that is able to defend himself against other bulls and against predators. This information is of great interest to elk cows during the autumn rut, because they will only mate with the strongest, most successful bulls -- usually those with the biggest antlers.
