In a small meadow near Moraine Park, a group of 5 Mule Deer bucks were busy grazing. Every now and again, a couple of the bucks would face off, lock antlers and “playfight” as they get ready for their upcoming rut. After jousting for a few minutes, they would return to grazing. Here are a few images captured of the Mule Deer:
