This set of images were taken back in October 2012 but I only ever processed and uploaded a single image from this set and that was image number 12, so after all these years it was time to convert the RAW image files and finally process these images.

These young Stags were practicing their dueling skills for the inevitable day of it all becoming very real and very dangerous, I was really lucky on this day as I witnessed a few different pairs of young stags play fighting, this is an act that they will carry out for real in the not to distant future during the rutting season where the strongest male battles off all other contenders fighting for mating rights, the victor will get populate its gene pool amongst the female Hinds, as for the contender well he can end up facing serious injury or even fatality.
