Behind the barn...
It comes with the territory. He is a guy that takes hero shots with his buck trying to look like an Al Qaeda terrorist. Kool dude! :dizzy: Comes with being young, kinda like the young buck in the video. All hat no horse.
I have been watching this kind of stuff since mid September, and every year. Sometimes more frantic, sometimes less. With the yearlings, the chase starts the day they shed their velvet, and ends only when they are too tired to move. Has nothing to do with the breeding cycle, it is just sophomoric antics.Something definitely happens now that kicks off prime scraping time. Whether there is a false estrus or some type of cue, I can't say for sure but the behavior on your video seems to show that may be true. We have had good luck at this time of year hunting in woods scrape lines, when moon and weather cooperate.
First buck we saw Thursday night was a young guy. About five minutes after he went out of sight we could hear him grunting, followed shortly thereafter by a doe and fawn sprinting by us at warp speed.Yes, Mike. I see it regularly back here. From the day these little guys shed velvet they start chasing and harassing doe families. All just jr. high level antics.
