My son lives in Jackson Hole and was out elk shed hunting this morning. He says he saw 6 bulls that still had their headgear attached. Not sure I've ever seen an elk with their antlers still attached in May...any ideas?

Spikes? Was he seeing new growth for this year? I saw a group of 6 In Oregon last weekend that had the front 3 growing and main beam going up.

Been a strange year. I’ve seen 3 bulls still carrying, middle of May at one of my bear spots. Interestingly I haven’t seen a bear in there yet this year. Normally bulls are shed out and gone and the bears are starting to show. Pic is from May 12 I think. We saw him again on the 15th still carrying.

Some years back I was hunting turkeys in mid may in the Wyoming part of the Black Hills. Came across two bull elk. One was off to a great start, already showing some spread with forked antlers. The other a good 6x6 still carrying.

The 6x6 was too attached to his antlers to let them go.
