Actually, bucks regularly masterbait. I've seen many video-clips of them doing so.



Several years ago I watched a spike when he did his own thing. he was trailing a big buck and doe and was totally frustrated as the big buck kept running him off. That is the first time I had ever seen that happen. A friend of mine has a captive deer herd and he has seen it a number of times. He hunched his back up and rubbed his penis against his belly. His whole body shuddered and then he looked around, I guess to see if anybody was watching. ;\)

The big buck was with the doe most of the morning and finally came by my stand at 7 yards... shame on him..

The crossbow spoke and he ran 80 yards and keeled over.

Maybe after that the spike took up with the doe?

I thought y'all were just joking. Learn something new every day...

No wonder the bucks are all holed up in cover during the day. They need a little self-love down-time. Probably beats having to listen to the does constantly yappin' about clearing trails, crapping all over the neighbor's home range, and finding the sweet acorn spots. "You didn't get home until after sun-up. What were you doing all night?"

That is a classic post Mike. Sorry to hi-jack, too funny!!!

Gil1,
You should have been at the QDMA Convention. Thursday afternoon was deer porno exibition. I guess you won't ever have a shot at a decent buck now that you know the truth.

BSK asked,What should be used as a measure of QDM success for a given property?
We all want to keep score,is all the hard work going to pay off ,
is all the money we spend on improvements worth it?
We pass on the younger bucks hoping that old mossy back will show up and when he does and we kill this old wise animal that has tricked us for many years, there is no greater feeling.
Is this the true measure of success?
The land i hunt has been in my family for 54 years.My father killed his first buck in 1963.When I started hunting in 1975 the only rule we had is you could only kill one buck.I finaly killed my first buck in 1981 and I have killed many deer since then.The success I have today started before 1963 before the first buck was even killed.My father died 3 yrs ago and left me in charge of the land I hunt today.The QDM I practice today is not just for me its for my children and there children for years to come.
And that is the true measure of success,that we leave the land better than it was given to us.

You couldn't have said it any better Canyonman. That is the land ethic Aldo Leopold made famous in the Sand County Almanac.

I agree, good post canyonman.

For me ... I don't think I can really measure QDM 'success'. I only have a tiny piece of land that I may manage (12+ acres), but am surrounded by about 240 acres that isn't currently hunted. I have always let all yearling bucks walk and take a couple does per year off my land since I first started hunting it 6 years ago. At first, I didn't see a buck bigger than a yearling spike. Lately I have been seeing more larger yearlings and the occasional 2.5 and 3.5 year old. So ... I think I may be making a difference.

One problem I see in my area is hunter density. We've got some "brown, it's downers" (and this mostly refers to bucks) hunting nearby and even though they can only take 2 bucks/year each, their sheer numbers put a hurt on our young buck population every year.

I like canyonman's measurement of success . I don't really get into the science of deer management . I just enjoy deer hunting for what it is , a sport that has been a tradition in my family for generations .
Success is directly proportionate to the size of the grin for the successfull hunter .
