Bighorn Rut – Photo Tour
Capture powerful images of mighty rams battling for dominance during Jeff Parker’s Bighorn Rut Photo Tour 2023.
ale bighorns in head-to-head combat makes for one of nature’s most spectacular scenes. As a wildlife photographer you don’t want to miss this!
December marks the peak of mating season — a.k.a., the rut — and Jeff will get you to the right place at the right time to shoot the action.
That right place is near this area in western Wyoming, which hosts one of North America’s largest populations of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.
Each winter hundreds of bighorn move into the region’s river valleys providing photographers with excellent access to the action. These fights are really dramatic; i’s not unusual to see them fighting on the side of steep cliffs.
Jeff’s Bighorn Rut Photo Tour 2023 takes place in the shadow of the rugged Absaroka Mountains.
The Absarokas border the eastern edge of Yellowstone National Park and rise over 13,000 feet high. With their jagged silhouettes, these peaks make striking photo subjects themselves so, while our focus will be on the bighorn activity, be sure to pack a landscape lens!
We may also see deer, bison, eagles, magpies, ravens, and elk so keep a lookout for them and other wildlife. But truly, it’s those rutting rams that you’ll want to watch and photograph with your keenest eye so you can go home with the most dramatic images possible.
Jeff Parker’s Bighorn Rut Photo Tour 2023 is limited to five (5) photographers.
~ ALL-INCLUSIVE ~ Your photo tour includes SINGLE-occupancy lodging, meals & ground transportation
