This was the first bull we encountered on Winslow Hill upon my arrival Monday morning. He was pacing the length of a meadow alternating between bugling and feeding.
Soon I was to learn that he was a satellite bull, circling the harem but never daring to spend much time with the cows lest the dominate herd bull catch him.
Fighting between these animals is dangerous. Most disputes are settled with posturing and intimidation rather than combat. This bull did not question the dominate bull’s authority during the time I spent with these animals, giving way each time the herd bull arrived upon the scene. As with most bulls on Winslow Hill this bull was quite tolerant of people.
