Big Horns return to Miller Butte

Big Horn Sheep are returning to Miller Butte on the National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole. Today we saw several large rams that were exhibiting pre-rut behaviors that included chasing, sparring, and kicking each other where it hurts. Guides love this time of year, our guests like this time of year, what's not to love about the changing of seasons. Very few people are out and about in the parks and the wildlife viewing is simply amazing. Pronghorn are being seen regularly and have begun leaving the refuge for their winter ranges south of Jackson Hole. The sheep of Miller Butte often get so close to your safari vehicle that you really get to know them individually. Look at the chip in this rams horn, I'm assuming that it took a pretty good blow to knock that loose.
