Visit the Olympic Peninsula to see and hear Roosevelt elk “bugling” up close, at their noisiest and most visible, during breeding season. Elk exhibit fascinating social behavior during breeding season. At this time they are preoccupied with the task at hand and sometimes allow people to approach fairly close to watch them gather and protect their harems. There are two Olympic Peninsula locations where elk have become acclimated to humans.
