HUNTING -- While elk hunting in the Blue Mountains last week, I saw whitetails at elevation 5400 feet -- and I also saw several scrapes.
But Montana outdoor photographer Jaime Johnson saw more than that on Thursday.
We spent most of yesterday chasing whitetails. We noticed several does with roughed up back hair. We also saw several bucks whose necks were swollen and witnessed several jousting. It was raining off and on, but we stuck with it and ended up with over a hundred good images!
The large buck was pretty messed up – he was kicking everyone’s butt. We affectionately called him Duke (he walked sideways like John Wayne and didn’t take crap from anyone).
