The rutting season is over.................................................................................

I have just been messing around re-editing some clips of the Red Deer I captured a couple of years ago.
I've never shared the sound of the stags roaring before... probably because of the wind noise and shake.


The rutting season has just finished and the stags have all sorted out their harems...
...with just the occasional roar to remind everyone whose  boss.

It's a short clip so won't take up much of your time.

Magnificent antlers on these guys! Reminds me a bit of our elk.

Those racks are huge!

Oh, yes, amazing antlers. I've never seen Canadian deer with such huge antlers. As Brian King said, only on elk.
Fascinating video. There's a city in Alberta called Red Deer, and I always thought the name had something to do with indigenous peoples, or something more Canadian than the many, many cities named after something English. Life is full of interesting surprises.
