Caribou Antlers Alaska Range Tundra Denali National Park

A large rack of Caribou antlers lay on on the tundra grass in Denali National Park with the snow covered peaks of the Alaska Range decorating the backdrop.

Left behind after another rutting season, the antlers of a large Caribou lay to rest on the tundra grass in Denali National Park in Alaska, USA. Both the male and female Caribou grow antlers with some racks standing three or more feet high.

The male Caribou uses their antlers frequently during breeding season when sparing with males to win over the female Caribou. The antlers begin to grow in the spring, increasing dramatically in size over the summer with the adult male shedding them in November. The female will keep her antlers over the winter, dropping them before spring arrives.

The Caribou in the region usually restrict themselves within the borders of Denali National Park where they roam free. East of the Foraker River and north of the Alaska Range is where the majority of Caribou in Denali reside.

In the backdrop, the sun reflects off the beautiful snow covered peaks of the Alaska Range which tower over the tundra of Denali National Park.
