    There are a lot of wolfs around this area pushing them.Had a young bull come out on the road and walk up to within 10yds of us while we were standing on the road having lunch over looking a clear cut.He was soaking wet and saliva running out his mouth.There is no swamp near there .I believe he was being chased by wolfs that is why he came toward us up the road and veered off at 10yds .That was in October.
    I wonder if stress was a factor?He had been rutting too as his antlers were well abused
    They are hardened up now.

    I've shot a few Immy's but have never seen that rubbery horn thing, might be worth calling the bio in the region. I'll bet he ain't rubbery eating though, well done Gary! K
