I suppose the best thing to do, assuming that he has already seen you, would be to stand your ground and hope he isn’t interested in eating you and moves on. Then head back to camp for a clean pair of shorts.
If he hasn’t seen you, you could try and sneak away in the opposite direction. Then head back to camp for a clean pair of shorts.
What would I do? If he got to close for comfort (which would be about a half a second after I saw him) I’d probably try and kill him before he had the chance figure out if I'm an elk or not. Then head back to camp for a clean pair of shorts…
Definately don't run away. Stand and make yourself visible, try to look big but non threatening, talk in a low even tone, and get the bear spray ready. Then back away slowly...and go get a clean pair of shorts.
