Few weeks back I came across an Elk who had recently shed one of its antler, the small amount of blood that is produced afterward was not yet dry. Only short distance away, outside the woods, were its buddies hanging with all of their antlers. Soon after both antlers have fallen, process starts for new pair. Fallen antlers are not waisted, rodents gnaw at them for the calcium and minerals they contain. Nature always has a way of looking after things. As soon as both antlers have fallen, process for the new one start, by end of the summer this elk will be competing with brand new fully grown antlers with other males during the rut season.
Until next moment,
