I'd say both. Brave and dumb. Weak or not a full grown bull elk in rutting season isn't something you want to get in goring distance of.
Unfortunately elk do sometimes get locked together while rutting, ending in the death of both animals in most cases. I've seen the aftermath and it's not pretty. For the record, both of the elk pictured are average mature bulls, neither is exceptionally large
