Liza and I had gone over to the ARWR about 4:30pm on April 10th, to look for bears. We went to Buffalo City Road, then turned onto Sawyer Lake Road. We had gone as far as the second big field (I think, but maybe the third field) when we saw this beautiful guy. He was a good distance away at first, and we thought he might be a deer, but as we slowly crept along it became clear what he was. He started running, then abruptly stopped, laid down and looked at us for a minute or so. Then he got up and continued to head towards the edge of the field. Before he got there, he stopped again and looked at us, then turned to the East and started to go along the edge of the field. But he again stopped, turned and looked at us, then squatted and peed!! Then he proceeded to kick grass and leaves with his four feet!! I didn't know whether to be impressed, scared or to laugh, since I was such a safe distance from him and behind a steel door. ?? Then he proceeded on East and out of sight. One thing we both felt for certain was truly blessed to be there to witness the event. He is a beautiful creature!

EDIT: Keep scrolling for more photos. I have not figured out to get more than one in a single post. I apologize for my lack of skill.
