Took a little ATV trip

Postby Lefty » 07 06, 2023 •  [Post 1]

4 miles from the nearest living tree
My wife and I had a great little ride today about 25 miles of desert and dark deep canyons
These guys were bedded near the 2 track in the tall sage brush

They look weird. Almost look really really skinny?
I hunt therefore I am. I fish therefore I lie.

Im believe their fresh coat that's natural this time of year, looking at their backs they also seem to be young bulls

The sun angle also gives their hips and shoulders a different definition.
