On Saturday, we went to the National Bison Range early in the morning. The object of the quest was the bugling elk in full rut, but alas, this scene alluded us. We were able to able see plenty of the other ungulates though. Large antlered deer of both species and Pronghorn all posed nicely for the camera. The star of the show was a black bear that was sitting out in the open as bison had chased it out of the bottom of Pauline Creek.
