Third year in a row ive gotten a PICTURE of two big bucks togeher in the weeks before the season starts and hunt all season long and never see them... What gives??? They are together as late as September 7th this year but disapear before I can hunt... three years in a row seems strange... HELP!!!
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.
