Description

Large male caribou (Rangifer tarandus granti) forages in the Black Spruce in the Kenai River estuarine area. He had recently completed scraping the velvet from his antlers by rubbing them vigorously against the branches of the spruce trees resulting in the blood stains seen here on his antlers. All this activity is in anticipation and preparation for the rut.
