This is a river crossing with JYD, a bull still with us and very active in the 2013 rut. Here he is at the end of a river crossing. He is drinking getting ready to bed down. I will never forget this crossing. It included nearly a hundred elk and 3 different herd bulls over a 45 minute period. You can see the buffalo is a trickle in the bottom of the picture. The satellite bull is wary of JYD, the 3 cow elk seem to be admiring JYD. I love the light in this picture.
