The Roosevelt Elk is a large-sized kind of deer (class 8). It can be hunted in the Layton Lake District.


Also known as the Olympic elk, the Roosevelt elk is one of the largest deer species in North America and the largest subspecies of American Elk. They are characterized by their dark and bulky necks and the bulls often have large, branching antlers. Roosevelt elk live inside forests on flat and steep terrain, but often venture out along the edges of the water where they feed on grass and woody plants. They are commonly found in large herds. Male elk often make loud and highly distinct sounds, known as bugling, that can be heard over very long distances. Adult males (bulls) are typically 40 % larger than their female counterparts (cows) and weigh on average 320 - 331 kg (705 - 730 lb).

Trivia and Patches[]

  • While Roosevelt elk do live in large herds, there's almost never more than one mature bull in a herd with cows. Any males still living in a herd with a resident bull tend to be sub-adult males from the previous year, which will soon be kicked out by the dominant male. Bulls with no females form bachelor herds, and travel together until they can take their own harem.
