Mule Deer Buck in Rut

Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, Colorado

A massive mule deer buck tastes the air to test a doe's readiness for mating, or estrus level during rut. The behavior is called "flehmen". This image was made in the last light of day as the sun dropped behind the Rockies.

Mule Deer Buck in Rut print

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

Select a print size:

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
