Estrous signs: Bucks chasing does usually indicates does in estrus, but not always. When young eager bucks harass does that are not ready yet, the does avoid them and they eventually lose interest. But when you see several bucks chasing the same doe, older bucks chasing, and bucks chasing persistently, those all point toward some does being in estrus. That is what we're seeing in Georgia, Arkansas, and South Carolina. Some does are coming into estrus now and it looks like we're right at the beginning in these areas.
