Buck attitudes changing in early August
Seeing a very subtle change in attitude among my bucks at Whitetail Rack Ranch. A little more aggression and paying a little more attention to does in the other pens. They must be starting to think about what's coming up!! Our Captain Crunch will immediately go into solitary confinement when he sheds velvet. When I'm feeding him cookies I'm beginning to see the tendency for him to roll those eyes! He doesn't like me touching his antlers anymore. They are a little more aloof and not quite as good buddies now. We'll be cutting antlers off before long. Sad not to be able to watch them in their glory this winter.
