I was working in the Badlands National Park (South Dakota) on the first day of hunting season, when I came upon these Pronghorn Antelope carcasses which had been disemboweled and hung to dry (notice the tags on their legs). The hunters had left, so I shot several photos before they returned. It is interesting how this silhouetted version is much more powerful than those photos shot with the sun behind me, in which you could see the horrible details.

I have strong reservations about hunting and I hope this photo expresses that. It was a finalist in the National Geographic amateur contest, but they told me it was too controversial to print.
