Notes "Playing" as their rut is occurs in the fall (Oct/Nov.) Or maybe they were establishing dominance relationship between them. The 2 were part of a larger bachelor heard on a scree slope at Radium Hot Springs just inside Kootenay National Park. I was snapping pictures when they began "acting up". So the camera was in position for the action.
