Moose Fighting During the Rut
To see the moose fighting during the rut, is quite an experience, and the rut is in full swing now.
The bulls have all shed the velvet on their antlers the past week or so, and once that happens, things heat up.
The bull on the right, is the largest guy in the area. The other guy, is one of 2 medium sized bulls.
This image was taken after the two above, and you can get a better idea of the size difference.
This is the same 2 bulls, and one of the cows at the river. I love this shot, even though I got wet feet to get it.
And then there was this day. This was by far the most amazing morning….ever. All 4 bulls, and 4 cows were all together. The boys were really showing the stuff, and several fights broke out. These are the 2 largest bulls. Shoshone, and Bannock.
Sizing it up.
And then, something I have never seen before. Three bull moose fighting together.
It was quite the morning. Well worth getting up early for.
I love this time of year here, the wildlife are active, the colors are gorgeous, it’s wonderful all the way around.
