Artist's Description

He’s had a busy fall. He’s migrated from above timber line, down to the meadows and streams. He’s collected and herded as many cows (female elk) as he could for his harem, he’s dueled with other big bulls, and still has to chase away rivals, and he’s bugled until he’s hoarse (pardon the pun). Now he’s mated with each of the 30 cows in his harem half a dozen times or so.

And year after year, season after season, rut after rut. at some point, you just have to ask yourself, “Is this all there is to life? Isn’t there anything more than just assuring my genes get passed along to assure a strong, healthy population? Nobody asks me how I’m feeling – asks how my day was. Sometimes it just gets so – well – predictable.”
