Young Elk and Ocotillo

It is springtime at Circle Ranch, and even though there has been no rain since October and none expected until July, desert plants are blooming, lambs and fawns are appearing and young elk are starting new antler growth.
 

This beautiful, young, free-ranging bull is standing behind a Giant Dagger, surrounded by blooming ocotillo.

This young native animal will be ‘eliminated’ (shot) at anytime he wanders onto the Sierra Diablo Wildlife Management Area adjoining Circle Ranch by staff of Texas Parks and Wildlife, either by rifle fire on the ground, or automatic weapons from aircraft.
