The Boys of Fall

“Be not afraid, you wild beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness have sprung up and are green…” Joel 2:22a

We don’t usually see very many elk along the highways until Autumn, when the rut begins and breeding season commences.  Just yesterday, on a trip to Lewistown, we were blessed with front row seats for a viewing of about a dozen bull elk, with antlers still in velvet.  They were sparring and chasing each other playfully as they traveled out of the timbered Snowy Mountains and through a hay field.  Until breeding season this bachelor group will likely hang together, but that all ends when the race to sire next year’s crop starts.

These are just another example of the magnificence of God’s wonderful creation!
