DB Male Elk

A male elk

Elk are a species of deer found in North America and eastern Asia. They are found mainly in forests, and eat a mixed diet of grasses and leaves. In their natural range, their predators include wolves, cougars, brown bears, tigers and leopards.


During the Seven Years' War, the Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Cormac hunted both male and female elk. When skinned, a male elk carcass would yield an elk pelt, elk meat and elk antlers, while a female carcass would provide him an elk heart. [1]

During his time in the colonies, the Grand Master Haytham Kenway, also hunted elk, though he was not able to skin them. Haytham's son, Ratonhnhaké:ton, hunted elk and sold their pelts at general stores. After joining the New England Hunting Society, Ratonhnhaké:ton was informed of an overly-aggressive elk. He successfully tracked down and killed "King Edward the Elk".[2]
