Grooming Bucks...


I am sorry for the obstructed views but when you are photographing in the woods you do not always get unobstructed shots. These two bucks groomed each other for some time. I changed positions twice to get three different angles but I could not find a location that gave me clear shooting and I did not want to disturb them and stop the action. I will take what I can get and just enjoy the fact that I got to watch this for some time. These two eventually sparred for awhile before a larger buck broke it up. Those photos will be posted in the future. I failed to mention, this was the day after Thanksgiving trip with my son.

I was recently asked to join another blog called Support Pa. Elk. The purpose of the blog is to educate the public and try an make a difference in the hunt zones in and around Bennezette. To many bulls are killed each year that are acclimated to humans and have no fear of them. They do not provide a fair chase and are equivalent to killing a tame animal. Stop by and try and make a difference in these animals lives.

Even though we can't see the behavior clearly, so what! You captured it and experienced the whole thing which is the point...Bravo! Most of us can only hope to ever see it! I think they are fantastic!
