I was sneaking down an embankment trying to get a clear shot through the undergrowth of a pair of Hooded Mergansers when I heard splashing nearby. Sat still, and this young bull came into view, did a couple poses, then casually walked off out of sight behind trees. This is when I retreated to let him enjoy his early morning meal.

Great shot! When do they drop their antlers?

Thanks all for the comments/views. Glad you enjoy these.

As for antlers, they usually drop them late December, into January. This would be his first set coming in, as he is a yearling.
