It’s almost here. There’s a chill in the air in the morning. Some leaves are starting to turn yellow. The bulls – even the young ones – are getting restless. Before long the bulls will start herding their harems, buggling and jousting with their rivals.
I love Fall; it’s my favorite season of the year.
This is a big bull in RMNP. He’s collected a large harem, and spends most of his days now buggling, jousting with other bulls, and chasing away rivals from his harem. The day before this photo was taken he jousted with a similarly sized bull and ripped out one side of his competitor’s rack!
