I pulled over to snap some photos and saw a cool standoff play out between the two deer over a lone doe. There was no full-on horn locking, but the encounter reminded me of the kind of posturing that happens in bars on a Saturday night – two guys strutting to show off for a female who doesn’t pay a whole lot of attention.

The 2014 winter games will be held in Sochi, Russia, beginning in February. McPhie was ranked third going into this season, so she has a good shot at not only making the team but earning a medal. A fundraiser is being held for her on Saturday at Big Sky Resort, a chance to wish this Montana girl good luck on one of the world’s biggest stages.  http://bit.ly/1kYn6Ph
