Buck chasing a doe.......

11 posts in this topic

This morning on my way to work I saw a nice 8 pt. (full headgear) with his nose right on a doe. His flag was up and he was chasing her accross the golf course looking for love. Do you think he could have been looking to breed, or was it just a coincidence?

Boy, I don't know. Anything can happen in the wild.

Its possible, she might not have been bred during the rut and he is a guy after all, looking to slip one past the goalie whenever he can!!!!

Back in the winter of 96-97 while going to college in Ely, I witnessed a buck "mount" a doe in the wintering yard up there. I don't know if she was in estrous or not but she stood for him. This all took place last week of February. So I think it possible.

Just as L-dog mentioned...He is a guy and we can't blame him. He might have missed his chance on the 1st go-around!

Good one lawdog!!!! \:\)

These late breeders are probably doe fawns that are coming in heat for the first time. Do the math, the fawn will be born in Sept....

That was my first thought too! Would have loved to be in the stand with that guy running around.......I slowed way down to watch for a minute, not cause I'm a perv, but because I was waiting for his headgear to drop grin.gif

I would be not surprised at all.

In 2006, I had some trail cam pictures of what I thought was a dry, very fat doe in late August. Around September she lost a lot of weight and was accompanied by two new born fawns. I never thought a doe would breed that late in the year, but I guess it happens.

That's what I have heard from everyone else I asked too. I've just never seen it in my lifetime. Thanks everyone.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
