Spent a wonderful morning witnessing the start of the red deer rutting season in the company of Ron(Maiwand), Richard (MossyOak) and Paul(harrattp). It was fascinating, with the stags in full cry and ready for the fray! This chap was taking a brief respite, but still had the energy to fill the air with his deep full-throated bellowing.
