Hello everyone, I went out yesterday looking for something to photograph. I came across some bulls. A few still had their horns even. It was pretty cool to see. The younger bulls were sparring a little. Boys will be boys. Lol It was rainy and kind of chilly but spring is definitely here.
I spent eleven years living in Colorado, guided pack trips in the wilderness in between shows.
I am very surprised that the large bulls, especially, still have their antlers. They usually shed theirs earlier than the younger bulls. While I have seen some bulls keep theirs as long as the end of March, the fact that almost all of them still have them is puzzeling. I assumed that with the mild weather we had in the mountain states, they would have been even earlier than usual.
Interesting. Nice photos. That first bull is almost a "royal".
The wildlife is my favorite part of living in Montana. I grew up in SoCal in the lovely slums of SanDiego and have just recently moved to Montana for college. The things I've learned about life and nature astound me, and there is a wonderful peace about being so close to the wild.
Gorgeous photos! How neat that must have been to see! I've had Moose and Deer in my yard back when I was living in NH, but nothing very interesting since moving to WV, and NC.....awesome pics, and incredible subjects!
