The Jackalope Rut is in Full Swing in Wyoming

Check out these extremely rare photographs of two rutting jackalope bucks fighting each other for breeding rights. Though the 2016 whitetail rut is moving into later phases in some parts of the U.S., the jackalope rut has started in Wyoming. This year is looking like it will be a record year for jackalope hunting! While they are normally an elusive species, these shy creatures throw caution to the wind at the start of the jackalope rut, which occurs between the end of snipe season and the beginning of the unicorn rut. If you’re lucky enough to have a jackalope tag, the jackalope rut is an ideal time to bag a great trophy jackalope buck. Jackalope bucks are known to be pretty aggressive, especially during the jackalope rut. This photographer was extremely lucky to get close enough to take these photographs without being attacked!...more
