Typically, the Elk will walk a slow pace, stop and graze nearby food.
If a player steps within roughly a 10 block radius of an Elk, the Elk will run away from the player, sometimes in an erratic pattern, to avoid being hurt.
Players can get closer to the Elk before it runs by wearing Camo Clothing.
Once killed, the Elk will die where it stands and the player can then retrieve the carcass to be processed.
- Since they are very adept at climbing hills, try to hunt Elk in open areas. This way, you can keep an eye on them during the chase.
- To prevent Elk starvation, plant Huckleberries, Grass, Camas, or Bunchgrass within a 64-block range of Elk herds.
Real life Facts
The Elk is a red-deer that typically inhabits 'North America' and 'Eastern Asia' - not to be confused with the 'Elk' from the 'British Isles' and 'Eurasia' which is actually a larger moose type mammal.
