These young bulls were captured on 250 frames in my camera. I was fortunate to be driving around Yellowstone by myself and able to stop when I needed to. I spotted the one on the right coming out of the woods toward a hummock across the roadway from me and pulled over.

They sparred and pushed and sharpened their skills while building neck muscles for the real thing. Reminded me of young male humans poking each other in the chest before doing the shoulder shove and then the punches are thrown.
