We lived in Wyoming for a number of years, and I became very familiar with elk.  A bull elk in velvet can be docile in the spring, and easily approachable as I experienced many times in Yellowstone Park. But come fall, during the rut, as a bull elk is honing his antlers, he can be dangerous as he acquires his harem of cows, protecting them and fighting off his adversaries.  It is wise to stay your distance.
