Chasing: Last week I took my buddy, Brian McIntyre, hunting with me and posted him in a funnel with deer trails that concentrated movement. He had two does scamper by about a half hour before dark, and they were followed about two minutes later by two bucks with their noses to the ground. He said that the bucks, a spike and a small ten-pointer, were definitely following the does, although the females seemed to want to get away from them. Very few if any does are in heat yet, but that is not stopping the bucks from following them or checking them out. These are mainly the ever-eager younger bucks doing the following now.
