So you're saying that in the spring the females are looking at Gilles and going "Hmmm" and the males are saying - get this dude out of here? :):):)

To make a short story ... yeap. They are not as bad as black bears (or Grizzlys) but they can give you a serous headache :) ... so better safe than sorry (this is when you love your 70-300mm) :)

It is "funny" to see tourists on a side road trying to take pictures of big horns from 6 feet away ... and sometime with toddlers in their arms...

Yeah - I've watched people at Yellowstone walk right up to a moose to take a picture. (Do they not get how large a moose is? Most horses are smaller.)

I have the impression that the park rangers there, feel that Charles Darwin was correct - natural selection removes the idiots in the species. And we're not talking about the moose...

Buffalo are good for working the Darwin theory. My Daughter used to work in Jellystone, the workers there are VERY cautious around Buffalo.

Hoping that I can earn a bit of money this year and pick up a used E620 or even a E30.....PRIORITIES...!
