A fun few images for Wapiti Wednesday.
Away from the main action of the rut in the meadow below, these two younger bulls had a little battle of their own in the forest above. Somewhat young and not quite ready to challenge the big boys, their hormones were raging just the same and they decided to take it out on each other.
For a good half hour they went back and forth, locking antlers and pushing and shoving each other. While maybe not quite as impressive as the bigger bulls, these guys clearly showed that in a year or so, they will be ready and in their prime to battle for supremacy – and the ladies.
