You'll see them Bucks together quite often while their wearing velvet in Bachelor groups but shortly after that velvet gets off,, them bachelor groups break up..

That's an Awesome picture, thanks for sharing it with us.

This is an age old question: Sometimes I think they simply move. Maybe it's only a mile but then you wonder did they get poached, hit by autos find better food source? Most likely someone has written a book on this. on the other hand sometimes you see big bucks for the first time and that's a rut thing I'm sure.

They are that big because they have mastered the art of survival. Perhaps being completely nocturnal and hiding in the thickest of thickness. Just think of all the masterful genes that they are passing off------if they survived.
