The Red Deer rut is in full flow. Eric has been strutting his stuff and bellowing out most of the day and night recently. Poor old Alfie has been pushed out and is sulking a little, but then he has been disappointing this year and hasn't really made much of an effort himself. Maybe he is biding his time till next year, or maybe he is just like his dad "Archie" and just a little too laid back :-)
Be sure to check out the rut at the BWC over the next couple of weeks if you have not already. Eric has even been chasing off the 2 fallow bucks, but they will be rutting soon themselves which promises to be fantastic this year with both looking fairly equal and the young buck already having a go at the master buck Norman.
