Fighting: Bucks are definitely in a fighting mood. Last Saturday Clete Frazell had an encounter with an aggressive buck in central Kansas. "I had one of the neatest experiences I have had as a deer hunter," said Frazell. "I had seen zero deer at 8:30 when I looked up and saw a mature buck coming across a pasture straight toward my decoy. He snort wheezed at 10 yards, and proceeded to knock the crap out of my decoy sending parts flying everywhere." Frazell predicts the rut will be in full swing within the next week or so, but right now it's hit or miss. "Just being in the right place at the right time as I didn't see another buck the rest of the weekend, but a ton of does."
