The Big Hoorah

We drove up into the hills to put out salt and mineral for the cows when Patrick spotted movement about a mile away with his hyper-vision. It was a herd of Bull Elk fighting on a flat.

Just look at this guy in the top right. He would circle the herd, run toward the hill and then turn back around to charge one of the others.

He’d go at it with one…

…and turn around to fight another.

I’m sure glad these guys made it through hunting season. Such an awesome sight to see in our backyard.

    That must be quite a sight to see. I wonder why the bull is so mad. Isn’t rutting season over?

      Hey Judy! Rutting season is over and they were just roughhousing, like guys do. Most of them were just grazing and seemed uninterested in fighting. But there’s always one in the bunch!
