A major ins. company is now running nation wide ads with their long time recognizable logo of a huge elk. ONLY now they are saying "we are your buck". A perfect example that these people are completely out of contact with the real outdoor world. HOWEVER they will be voting on red flag laws, expanded backgrounds and registration and confiscation. Folks we got a hard hill to climb in the next 15 months.
Having shot a stag in Scotland during the roar and an elk during the rut, I will second Wayne's response that they do not sound alike.
Twin Peaks has stags in front of their restaurants (not admitting whether or not I've been in one) and I've even seen developments with "Elk" in the name and have a stag statue. Common mistake but those in the know will instantly spot it.
The Hartford logo is totally a stag, for a company founded IN THE U.S., I could never figure out why they picked a stag for their logo and not an elk, idiots! Also, since we're discussing insurance companies, anyone notice the Farmers commercial where the bronze mule deer's antlers are on backward? Idiots...
