I think this young bull has seen better times. He seems to be kicked out on his own and has a few broken tines. On his right side, he had a superficial (I hope) wound. He isn’t sticking around for many more photos here.

Taken west of Victor, Montana at the base of the Bitterroot Mountains in early December.

Canon EOS 7D, 1/640, f/8.0, ISO: 200

    Hope you enter the challenge with this guy!! He must have had a ruckus with someone.

  • I am thinking you are right!

    Awesome capture

  • Thank you! He was very proud and seemed quite healthy despite his broken tines and slight wound.
