The rut is on out here for our Blacktail/Muley cross bucks and I was able to photograph a couple nice bucks. I've seen both these guys before and could not get them on camera or just got parting shots as they were very spooky. With the onset of the rut, they've thrown caution to the wind and could care less that I'm there. This is a good reason why rut hunts are much easier.:)

Nice pics Moose, it's a shame that we can't hunt the rut in CA. According to DFG "...the rut is a delicate and vital portion of the deers life cycle..." Bla, bla, bla.

Yep, and too bad the Blacktails can read the calendar so well!

Thanks Jen... I hope you get the chance. Here is another one I shot in a snow storm recently. I think this guy came down out of the high country for the rut and to winter.

Jen, if you decide you want to try on Blacktail let me know. Oregon has very good late season bow hunting that is OTC. I know a few areas I would be happy to fill you in on.
