Bucks chasing Doe

Saw something pretty neat today. Went out coyote hunting this morning and while watching a hillside saw 5 deer moving through. Looked through the binoculars and noticed it was 4 buck chasing a doe. 2 of the buck were still carrying antlers and 2 had lost theirs but I could see where they had been. All 4 were chasing the doe back and forth on the hillside. We had about 3" of fresh snow here so they really stood out. Haven't seen them chasing this time of the year before. Would make some really late fawns if a doe was bred now.

4:1 B ratio AR is working. Waugh!

AR is only a pacifier.You will never grow if it's not in your genes.

I have observed the same thing happening well into late March. Pretty awesome thing to witness. I was out this wknd and saw blood in deer urine next to very small doe tracks. I'm not sure if it's true but have been told this means the doe is in estrus? Regardless, I have seen bucks chasing in mid March.

I have seen fawns in October that were lucky to weight 50 pounds on the hoof. Felt bad for them being born so late in the year.

It wasn't a real big deer but it was about the same size as the buck that kept trying to mate with her every time she stopped. The buck that was most aggressive didn't have antlers but i could see either buttons or where the antlers had been. I just didn't get a good enough look to see which. Could have been a small doe and a button buck I suppose.

Here's a series of trailcam pictures from 2 years ago on February 26th. This buck appears to be following the doe with romance on his mind!
