Ever wonder how quickly antlers grow on elk?
Antlers are one of the fastest growing tissues among mammals, and this video proves it.
June is an exciting time for hunters. The elk and whitetails are growing their velvet antlers and it’s certainly exciting to anticipate what their antler may look like by fall.
Watch the antler growth of a huge elk.
This bull elk was one of the biggest elks in the world when the video was taken. It’s truly fascinating how fast their antlers grow in just a short amount of time.
Antlers on whitetail deer can grow up to a quarter of an inch a day. I’m sure elk are almost double or triple that growth per day.
The video was taken on an elk farm in Utah and the elk’s name is Iron Image. Iron Image lives up to his name.
