Last picture is the best!  ;)

Really though, that's a great looking SX/4. Would look better with a skid plate!

I like the stance. It seems a bit taller. Maybe that's just what an Ealge should look like and I've only ever seen ones with saggy springs!

That's awesome you randomly ran into another Eagle guy too!

sorry to inform you however, those dont appear to be deer. we have hundreds that come down off the mountain and eat our alfalfa for our cows every winter. those are rocky mountain elk. the most majestic wild animal in the great northwest. cant put into words how awsome elk are. lol.


Elk are actually one of the largest species of deer.

That is correct, but many people don't consider them deer at all.  allot of people consider elk and moose separate members of the mammal family, but they actually are.  And the Moose IS the largest species of the deer family. 

Now we return you to this topic, all ready in progress...

Great looking Eagle!  Thanks for the pics!

There are LOTS of elk up there by Estes Park.  I went camping with the cub scouts one year just outside of town, and woke up to find elk all over the campground, just a few feet from the tent.

Careful... LOL!  :rotfl:

But those are some sweet pictures.  We don't have any mountains here in Wisconsin.  We only have "Rib Mountain"   ...It's name is "Rib Mountain," but it is really actually a "hill..." ::)  It's not actually tall enough to be a mountain...lol.   So no mountains here... :-\

Thanks for the pictures! :blob1:
