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.
Red flag laws suck, Walmart just caved ... etc. etc. ... McConnell is an ass and wants to bring to a vote expanded background checks in the Senate, the House is lost for now (piss on the squad and Beto, "Spartacus"/Booker, Warren, Biden, Sanders, etc.), we as a country MUST get the House back in 2020 and keep the Senate and defeat the lousy Dems/libs/Socialists (all one in the same).. how many here have contacted their Reps and Senators ... I have and will continue to do so ... what about YOU ??
Close enough for government work ... " Both are members of the cervidae family of round-antlered deer, and for many years they were considered separate species: cervus elaphus, the red stag; and Cervus canadensis, the American elk or wapiti. It turns out, however, that they can (and do!) interbreed freely, given the chance, so most modern authorities consider them as just one species, Cervus elaphus. So the red stag is almost an elk, or vice versa. With differences. No American hunter who has ever heard it will forget the bugle of a bull elk. European hunters don't call it a bugle. They call it a "roar." Okay, but that's just a word. So what if the red stag is a little smaller in the body, more reddish in color, and with slightly different antler conformation? Surely they must sound the same! "
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...
