After a lifetime of deer hunting I’ve learned one thing. Big bucks are like tomcats, they service one hell of a lot of does over a wide area. Like tomcats they run lesser bucks as far away as possible from their ladies. The distances they travel plays a large part in how often they are seen or photographed in one certain area. Does and young bucks, who are not a threat to big boys harem, generally prowl a much smaller territory and are seen more often.

In one instance we had a rather large buck that had a bad foot. A large knot above his left rear hoof. Everyone within a 15 mile radius got a picture or two of him for years, but no one ever got a shot at him. Then he just disappeared.

Of course it goes without saying that they’re pretty wise too. They didn’t reach old age by being careless.
