An elk is a large species of deer. Elks could represent provision and also caution or the need to be quick.
Positive: Dreaming of hunting an elk could represent that you are making provisions for your family.
Negative: If you see an elk in your dream running away, it could represent the need to run away from the hands of the enemy.
