The deer, the king in the alpine nature, has its maximum expression in autumn when the courtships begin for the females and the males, feeling the smells, go towards those that are defined as the “harems”. They try to conquer supremacy over them and defend them to the sound of determined horns from potential contenders, but what leaves the mouth open are the roaring that the males emit to start their battle of love.
