The Lesser Bulls

These are the Roosevelt Elk bulls that are not yet contenders for having their own harem. But that doesn't mean their testosterone levels are any less than the big guys. Butting heads seems to be the thing to do this time of year. I'm waiting to catch the really large bulls going after one another. For now they're bellowing and doing a lot of chasing but no harsh blows yet (at least none that I've seen).
