They went at it for quite a while.  There was a winner and I think they’ll each remember that.  There won’t be much more fighting now because the bulls are dropping their antlers.  However, come the next rut these two will probably go at it again.

    Terrific action, Jim — even if its a less aggressive fight than during the rut, its still fun to watch!

    Great images! Love the action captured! I wouldn’t want to get in their way. Keep up the excellent work.
