6 Month buck fawns breeding

5 posts in this topic

Well, I know there has been a lot of debate whether 6 month old buck fawns breed or not, but I saw concrete proof that they do (or maybe just some do) today. I was driving to work on a country road today and saw a doe jump out of the woods and stop on the roadside, then a nubbin 6 month old followed right behind her and started to mount her right on the roadside! I stopped my truck and pulled over and watched this nubbin buck mount her for a good 10 seconds and then she shrugged him off and ran across the road and disappeared back into the woods. He followed after her with his nose to the ground. It was so hilarious watching this 90 pound 6 month old buck mount this pretty good sized doe (she was probably around 140 or 150 pounds). I have never seen a buck actually breed a doe like that, I have seen them try to mount, but the does have always ran away before they could actually get on top. Anyone else seen this before?!

Did he have a Viagra in his mouth?

I have heard that a doe with a buck fawn might have problems with him trying to mount her trying to figure out what goes on in his first rut. I don't believe many fawns have been born to this type of occurance.

Maybe that is the reason all the deer in my area are so small. Just kidding!! I see puppys doing the same thing. I believe they all have the instinct and maybe like the feeling. Heck i have a female dog and she is mounting my kids, my old golden retriever male. It all natural for animals to do this. Heck they have to learn by practice right.

I can concure with you, have seen it myself, but the buck fawns I do see breeding are healthier and bigger than your avg buck fawn.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
