Are you my mama?

No, I wasn't this little one's mama. While I was on a job site near Iliamna AK, this yearling caribou was alone and searching for company. When it saw me it cautiously approached, with little grunting sounds. As I grunted back it came closer and closer. After a few minutes it realized I wasn't kin, and bolted off into the tundra.
