Up close and personal with elk

I visited my hometown in Nebraska over my birthday weekend. While we were there, my dad introduced Zach and me to some of his animal friends.

Check out the rack on this one!



This elk is called Rambo.


My dad helps feed Rambo and the rest of the elk herd, as well as bison and various other animals for a friend.

These two tough guys make a handsome pair.

Now give Rambo a little kiss!

  1. My goodness, they are giant! Very neat to see!

  2. The elk are beautiful! and look so loving. I’m jealous!

  3. Oh, it was great! I wish I had gotten pictures of the bison and swans, too. My dad’s friend has a really amazing little animal farm.

  4. How cool to be able to see them up close!! We see elk in CO but I’ve never been that close. Thanks for sharing the photos- looks like a fun birthday weekend with your Dad!
