Sharpening The Tools

Every year the bull elk grows new antlers and every fall they scrap the velvet from the antlers to prepare for the mating season or the rut. One of the ways to remove the velvet is to scrap the antlers on a tree trunk or branch. This elk is rubbing his antlers on the aspen tree during the rut. 0809
