Battling Bulls - Elk By Michael Sieve

Battling Bulls - Elk by Michael Sieve.

"The shrill whistle of a bugling bull elk is a classic symbol of the West. Beginning in late summer, the elk rut extends into October. During that time bulls will wallow in creeks, springs and small wet depressions, urinate on themselves and bellow challenges. They also assemble harems of cows, a unique behavior in the deer family. A mature bull may gather twenty or more cows, and attempt to fend off small 'satellite' bulls that try to breed a stray cow while the he isn't paying attention. Most of these encounters are settled without a fight; the aggressive, pounding charge and swagger of the bull sufficient to run off his smaller rival. But things can turn deadly serious when another mature bull wants the harem for his own. Posturing and bugling won't scare him off, and he approaches, boasting his own vigor by swaying his giant rack and breaking tree limbs with it. The two bulls walk parallel and stare each other down. Then one spins in for the attack, and the fight is on. Grunting and heaving, the dueling pair tears up sod as rack pushes against rack. After many minutes, one bull wins the day, but always at a cost; gouges, scars and punctures are standard fare for rutting elk. But those wounds are a small price to pay for the right to rule the herd." ~ Mike Sieve
