Bull at the end of the rut 2019. He had a harem of about a dozen cows and a couple of them were standing on the road in front of my shuttle bus and he was next to my side window. I opened the window and asked if he minded me taking his picture he didn’t turn away so I took a few pics, I could have touched his nose from my seat wished the car in the background wasn’t there. All these pictures were taken from my bus on my phone. I generally work the early morning shift which gives me a lot of opportunity to see wildlife.

Can you imagine the traffic jam that guy would have caused on 64 between the entrance station and the visitors center?
Can you cool it down a bit for me? I’ll be up there to PSAR 4 days later next week

Actually that one was on 64 just south of the VC. Heard the monsoon is supposed to start next week, it gonna be a scorcher for the next few days.

Not my camera work, but did not know where else it might be appropriate to post this amazing, sick but entertaining short vid.

Anyhow, be forewarned that this is a graphic and kind of disturbing exposé on just how amazingly violent and aggressive deer can be…

@STREGA. Great pictures. The road to Hermit in the morning is one of my favorite reasons for working that trail.

I worked the trails four days last week. I have a question though.
Does this lovely lady and her calf count as wildlife?
I counted as many as six cows around Albright and the rec center.

Only if they stay up all night partying. We had 27 behind our trailer last week 2 of them big bulls. I heard they ended up here because of a recent wildfire they all have tags on their ears. They put up a corral down by the sewer plant trying to catch them.

I finally got a decent photo of a grizzly about 15 - 20 meters from my Disco wandered past our campsite of 14 rovers, decent sized if a bit thin.

Another club member felt he had to point out there was a bear, as I was not seeming to take adequate notice. I saw him just fine ,I just wanted a photo. Hard to get a good shot of grizzly they tend to bolt. This guy was totally unconcerned.

Been seeing this pair of wild horses for months out on Hermit Road but have never been able to get a picture of them before. They always run back into the trees when I approach them in my bus, this time I was on foot at Hermits Rest. The park visitors on my bus get more excited seeing the horses than cow elks.

Great pictures!
I’ve seen the horses in the morning driving out to the Hermit Trailhead, but like you have never been able to get a picture.

something I have rarely seen in Montana like in 62 years I have seen two and both in the last 2 weeks. This one was in my garage.
