Mule Deer Bucks
Photographer: Bruce Becker
Location: Grand Teton National Park
Story: 
The rut had not quite started for these mule deer bucks. It appears that the buck on the left had just removed the last of the velvet from his antlers as there is still blood at the antler bases. Given the season and the fact that their antlers were polished, I was surprised to see these 2 bucks traveling together.
