The Elk in Far Cry: New Dawn counts as one of the 25 animals required to unlock the Master Skinner trophy/achievement.
Although it is a large mammal, you can hunt Elks the moment you reach Prosperity, early in the game; however, keep in mind that it is a Rank II creature; thus you might want to equip correspondingly.
The Elk’s skin can be traded for Black Powder; which makes this animal quite valuable.

Elk Crafting Materials Trade Value
After you hunt an Elk in Far Cry: New Dawn you obtain Crafting Materials and parts.
The following table shows their trade values and how to use them in the game.

Even though you are able to kill an Elk with any weapon, you may notice that the Bow and the Space Force SA-50 sniper rifle are more effective.
Try taking Timber with you, as he will tag nearby animals; thus making tracking a lot easier.
Headshots with any of the two weapons recommended above will grant instant kills; saving you time when grinding for Elk Skins.
