The rut is over but that doesn’t mean a fella can’t try. 😉
I came across this good-looking guy and a trio of does last weekend in the Colorado Front Range foothills. He didn’t have a huge rack but was quite handsome and unlike most bucks this time of year, his rack did appear to be entirely intact having survived the battles of recent months.
While he was hot to trot, the ladies were not. They all took off running and while he gave it a valiant effort, he was rebuffed and left unsatisfied.
