Rough rut

This massive Bison bull bears the battle scars of mating season. A broken horn, blood from his rival. Wow!

It was a pretty wild scene two weeks ago when I came upon the main part of the herd. Multiple battles were going on, some within just feet of my truck. This guy is the big man on campus and he did not appreciate being challenged by an upstart. The pair went at it for a good while, head to head, body blows, shoving each other across the grassland.

At one point, this guy broke a piece of his horn off but that didn’t prevent what was left from doing damage to the competitor and drawing blood. Awesome! Once the action died down, he came over and seemed to want a picture taken to show his scars. I obliged.
