Bull elk, like all cervidae, shed their antlers when their testosterone levels begin to drop after the rut. This shed-dropping extravaganza occurs during late winter to early spring every year. After the old rack falls off, new antlers begin to grow fairly quickly.

You are about to see an adult bull elk shed an antler to get ready to start the whole process all over again.
