We’ve caught this buck a couple of times this summer, holding court with a pile of younger bucks in the cattails. They scatter like roaches in daylight as soon as the camera shutter ‘clicks’, but this old boy holds tight to make sure the other guys are the target. Smart old buck.

Once the velvet starts to shed and the leaves start to fall, it’s a whole different story. Catching him in daylight has been a challenge, and he doesn’t roam much until the ladies start giving him attention. Even then, this buck doesn’t take many chances.

Bucks don’t get big by being stupid.
