A Newborn Elk's First Day in a Challenging World in Canada's Rockies. Newborn elk in the Canadian Rockies face a variety of challenges, which are crucial to their survival during the early stages of life. Predators such as wolves, bears, cougars, and coyotes pose significant threats to elk calves. These predators are adept at hunting and often target young, vulnerable elk that are less capable of defending themselves or fleeing quickly. The Canadian Rockies can have cold temperatures, rain and even snow making Newborn Elk particularly susceptible to hypothermia and other weather-related stresses during the first days and few weeks of life when they are still developing their insulating fur and body fat. Survival rates for elk calves are highly variable and can be influenced by a combination of these factors. Adaptations, such as staying hidden and remaining motionless when predators are near, as well as rapid growth rates, help improve a newborn elk calf's chances of surviving these early challenges.

Wildlife on Video - Bighorn Rams Fighting for Mating rights During the Bighorn Sheep Rut. The larger Bighorns with superior genetics are able to battle like this for quite a long time during the bighorn sheep mating season. Several larger Rams are seen here battling for the right to mate on this day.




Wildlife on Video - Bighorn headbutting at the height of the Bighorn Sheep Rut or Mating Season. Lots of Bighorn Sheep Ram Rut fighting was witnessed this year and this is some of the Best Bighorn Ram Headbutt battles we have ever witnessed.


Wildlife on Video - The Elk Rut is just a couple months away. Elk Bulls are putting on a lot of weight right now as their testosterone increases and they have access to much more nutritious food. Bugles, Battles and Breeding will be taking over this Beautiful area as Bulls fight to claim or hold their territories' throne.


Wildlife on Video - Elk Bull Fights are numerous during the Rut in Canada's Rockies, but this one was especially striking. Here is a close look at the Largest Elk Bull in this area.. first, a couple clips over the last month, before today's marathon fight with this younger rival. The younger rival has not been stressed near as much during the height of the rutting season, and clearly had the stamina to outlast one of this areas most dominant bulls today. The Bull that conceded defeat today has been the most dominant elk bull in this area now for years. This well known King has had to battle and run off rival bulls on almost a daily basis over the last month and a half, of which shows athleticism and genetics that are extremely rare. We suspect he decided it was more important to preserve his energy as very few cows remain in estrus. He did sustain some injuries here, but will likely be back to fight another day.




Wildlife on Video - We were lucky to witness this huge bull courting a receptive cow during the Moose Rut. The active peak of rutting season for moose is generally the first two weeks of October. Farther North in the hemisphere is earlier as South is a bit later. Moose bulls may court cows for several days during their mating season. The largest and heaviest of the Deer family can often be seen in groups during this time, with both Bulls and Cows potentially competing for mates. Moose Bulls will chase off or even fight rivals for mating rights, while cows that occupy the same area may also chase each other away from a favorite bull moose. You can hear some vocalizations between the bull and cow along with seeing some very rare behavior in these gentle giants.
