Re: BUCKS & TRAIL CAMS ?
Willy, firstly the summer patterns versus the fall are completely different. Also, depending on the age of the deer they disperse and sometimes over long distances from where they summered. And once the bachelor groups dispel, they become very different animals after the antlers harden. A bucks home range depends on many things, dispersal goes from dominance to age to food sources, pressure and breeding capability. There is also one of natures most dominant features, preventing inbreeding.
There is no set pattern to a mature bucks thought process except, just like many young men. Where will I eat, sleep and find some. And most importantly where can I do it that I will not get shot at? That's it. But remember the buck you seen in August may be many miles away come September, October.
