There might be a linguistic problem here. In the UK, elk IS moose. In the States I believe you call wapiti (aka, Red Deer) elk.
Anyway, here is a reference that might be useful:

Does anyone know of references that describe skeletal differences between
elks and moose? Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
