Description

Rocky Mountain Bull Elk

The Rocky Mountain Bull Elk is native to Ambarino and northern New Hanover. Their herbivorous diet includes grasses, leaves, bark and plants. Elk are easily startled, so it is advised to keep as much distance as possible whilst hunting. Long range weapons like a Bow with Improved Arrows, or a long scope rifle, are considered to be the best for hunting. Their skin and antlers can be used for crafting, and their mature venison is a good source of food.[1]
