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.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
