Boxley Beast Returns, beats Maverick to Claim South End Herd

The Boxley Beast returned for the 2011 rut and took over Maverick's herd down by Smith Creek. The Beast is now an 8x7, with two extra small points on his right antler. Many satellite bulls, and some challengers behind his field migrating along the Buffalo River bed. The south end remains a prime location for a possible bull fight.

Hacksaw is mid-valley with a nice herd.

Both herds have been in pretty stable positions now for a relatively long time. For best viewing and photo ops go to the south end herd down by Smith Creek.

More solitary bulls are showing up as the early rut progresses. They can be seen here and there the length of Boxley Valley.
