It gets better. As a buck pursues a doe, he'll be vocalizing loudly, grunting his passion and frustration. The pair will make plenty of noise, their hooves stomping dirt, thrashing leaves, and breaking sticks as they run. Any buck within earshot will decipher its meaning in a second. Young bucks will race to the scene fueled by instinct and curiosity. Old bucks will join in with a sense of purpose honed by maturity and experience. And if two mature animals, especially deer that don't know each other, meet up during one of these chases, odds are high that they'll brawl over breeding rights. These can be some of the most intense, aggressive battles of the season.
