The Rut   Leave a comment

Here’s why they call male bighorn sheep rams. During the mating season or “rut” in November and December, the rams butt heads while sparring for females. The massive impacts can break horns and sends a cracking noise echoing through the mountains. It’s an incredible natural event to witness.
