Camera Critters Bull



The young bull pictured here, while sporting nice 6x6 antlers, was no match for the huge herd bulls who dominate the breeding in Pennsylvania’s Elk Range.

This fellow apparently was feeling the mating urge quite strongly but not strong enough to challenge the big boys. During the time I observed him he kept close to the big guys harem but would quickly shy away whenever his antics drew the unwelcoming attention of the dominate bull.
