LOL I think this is they most common way to see where Elks have been. If it's fresh you know they are around. It doesn't smell that bad but if you get it under your shoe wash it away as soon as possible! The smell will stick to your shoe for months otherwise!
Some people sell elkshit to tourist for a quite large amount of money. If you want elkshit go out in the woods in pick it by yourself!! But remember! It's not a preparation to increase potency! LOL

One of the largest density of Elk is found in the area. There are no guided safaries or things like that. To spot a Elk you have to have some luck, they are very reserved and shy. If you see one, be ready with you camera immediately. They wont stand still for a long time if they've seen you!
If you see a mother with a calf they will probably be afraid but if you suprise them are able to get very close...RUN!
Each year people in Sweden get attacked by a Elk with a calf.
It's not common that people get killed but it happens...
The best chanse to see a Elk is in dawn, at bogs or fields.
And please, don't steal Elk signs. There are traffic deaths caused by Elks each year. It's the most common traffic incident caused by animals in Sweden.
