I saw this button buck rubbing his tarsal glads together and urinating on them on Sunday. That was a first for me. I know it's common for a buck to do this over a scrape, but I didn't know a deer that young would do that. I guess instincts are instincts... I also had a great day as far as buck sightings go, but that's for another post.

You can ignore the video after he starts walking.

When it comes to button buck behavior, one of the strange things I've noticed is how fascinated they are with scrapes. The same button buck will come back to the same scrape day after day, hanging around and messing with it for long periods of time. This behavior is so common that I wouldn't be surprised if scrapes and the chemicals left in them are found to play an important role in the sexual maturation process of young males.
