More mulies in the rut!

Tonight's post is going to be kind of short and sweet...I've been a little under the weather and our family is still trying to recover from Christmas!  I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, and I again want to thank you for visiting the blog!  Now that the presents are unwrapped and the holiday season is winding down hopefully we can all get back out in the outdoors and have some fun with our new toys!

First of all, I want to share a very interesting photo with you, taken by Spenser Owens of Panguitch, Utah.  While coyote hunting Spenser told me about spotting this mature mountain goat on the east side of Mount Dutton, near John's Valley (which is just north of Bryce, Utah).  These magnificent animals have been spotted on the Dutton range in the past, but this guy had wandered way down into the pinyon, cedar, and sage...not where you would ever picture catching a glimpse of a mountain goat!  Take a look at this photo, as well as some more great southern Utah rut bucks captured on film by Spenser!


 
 And now here's a few more taken by Travis Shakespear of Henrieville Utah.





This guy is a little hard to see but check out that spread!
