Location: Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

The Roosevelt elk are the largest species of elk in the world. Not surprisingly, they are also prized by hunters and poachers alike. Poaching of the elk on Vancouver Island in British Columbia has risen dramatically in recent years, causing concern for a species that is still slowly recovering from excessive hunting in the 20th century.

I have made many trips and spent countless hours trying to locate the elk on the island to capture images of them and to highlight their precarious conservation status. I was finally able to locate several beautiful bull elk, and this image was the pinnacle of my efforts.
