"Stuff is eaten by dogs, broken by family and friends, sanded down by the wind, frozen by the mountains, lost by the prairie, burnt off by the sun, washed away by the rain. So you are left with dogs, family, friends, sun, rain, wind, prairie and mountains. What more do you want?"

Mid-March on the western Wyoming range: Jim and I were surprised yesterday to see these two pronghorn antelope bucks engaged in a furious battle in the sagebrush.
Since it's not breeding season, we assume it was a territorial dispute.
The two fairly evenly matched bucks went at each other for several minutes, until one buck broke away and fled. It appeared the slightly smaller buck had won, but not before both bucks were bloodied.
