September Bulls

I like the fall season. I suppose there are many reasons for me preferring this time of year. First, I played football on my  high school team, so this time of year always reminds me of that. I just received word last night that one of my coaches, Mr. Kuhnert, died this week. He was also my Earth Science teacher in 9th grade and he was a great teacher and encouraging coach. I will miss him but when the fall season approaches my thoughts always turn to football. Another reason I like fall is because I am a hunter. Last, but certainly not least, it is the most active time for the elk. It all starts in September and I cannot wait to get up on the elk range!

I posted a photo here today from a trip I was on last fall. It was a misty, foggy morning but the bull was bugling to beat the band. Have you ever heard an elk bugle? Have you ever watched two bull elk duke it out for breeding rights? These are just the tip of the iceberg sights and sounds that me excited at this time of year. I can’t wait to see the elk in action.

  1. This time of the year makes a grown man that loves to watch and photograph Elk feel like Christmas is appoaching. I know I can not wait it is so relaxing mentally.

  2. I definitely agree, Brad! Being behind the viewfinder in Elk County is the very best place to be for me. It is extremely relaxing and waiting for the elk to appear and show their spectacular rutting behavior is the best!
