[edit] Basic Information

Elk are passive creatures found in the wild all over Skyrim. They are very common, and are hunted widely by the citizens of Skyrim, for there Venison, Deer Hide and Antlers. When hunting Elk, killing it instantly is advisable as it has a very high movement speed, much faster than a humans, and is likely to get away even if you sprint after it.

[edit] Drops

When killed, an Elk will drop a combination of these things:

  • Venison
  • Deer Hide
  • Antlers

Venison can be eaten raw, or cooked to regain health.

Deer Hide can be used on a Tanning Rack to create two pieces of Leather for smithing.

Antlers can be used as an Alchemy Ingredient.

[edit] Variations

[edit] Deer

Deer are very similar to Elk, the only difference being their appearance. Deer and Elk drop exactly the same items.
