This big bull elk was obviously Alpha in his herd, regardless of the mutation that caused his left antler to grow crookedly. He has definitely made the most of his predicament, as his harem of ladies seemed to be happy with him!! When I looked closer at the pictures, he had sores or infections on his flanks, maybe caused during the rut.
