I've encountered on the trail in cataloochie before. The bull blocked the trail and was snorting at us until all the females behind him crossed to the other side and were away and then he followed them. They are quite big, but I didn't attempt to approach them. The ones that hang in the cataloochie valley are totally unafraid. I frequently see people on the road who drive in there with a bale of hay in the back and the elk eat out of the bed of their truck. This doesn't as happen as much in the busy months because the rangers are there but late I'm the day before dusk and in the winter/early spring I have seen it. Because of this, while stopped on the road, three young males came up my car and I thought one of them was going to stick his head into my drivers side window. Someone will get hurt eventually.
