9/17/13 JYD and Harem by Cave Mountain Road
JYD working his harem. Herd bulls get busier as the rut goes on. JYD is often in motion now, but nothing like he will be when there are challenger bulls hanging around. During the rut these big guys work themselves to exhaustion protecting their cows. By the end of the run they have lost as much as 20% of their body weight and are just exhausted.
