I think this is a buck we called Big Head. We got close to him after he had an accident last year and hurt his back legs. Most of the pictures I have of him, he doesn't have his antlers. This evening he came down to the car and posed for pictures.

Here's Apolo hiding in the brush.
We spotted our old friend Skar resting in the snow.
I named this buck Too Tall. He was a favorite and many photographers had ample opportunities to photograph him. He was not a dominant buck, didn't show any interest in the girls until the second go round after the other big boys had dropped their antlers. I'm not sure but we believe Tall died early fall of 2008.
This is brute, just look at him and you can see why I named him that. When he came through the other bucks gave him a lot of room. I never saw Brute with a doe.
This is Amigo. He has a very wide rack and was a buddy to Skar and Tall during the ruts of 2005 & 2006.
Amigo coming in.
This is Amigo right before the rut in 2007. He no longer trailed along with Skar and Tall.
