It was about this time a couple of years ago I heard 2 bucks really going at it just over the ridge from my stand. When I got down I went to examine the area and found a freshly broken off beam from an 8 pointer. This morning my buddy had 2 small bucks going at it below his stand. On the 24th another hunter killed a 129" 8 pointer that was so badly beaten up and gored they figured he was probably going to die from his wounds. Don't put those rattling antlers away yet.

Mike,

During our 2nd rut, I got MANY pictures of older bucks shoving each other around in food plots at night. I also got a "new" buck on camera that has every one of his vertical tines broken off. He just has two big sweeping beams with little nubs where each of his vertical tines used to be. Some fighting and shoving is definitely still going on.

I have pictures of a nice 8 point Christmas Eve who showed back up Christmas night as a clean 7 point. I'm kinda curious to know what deer he was fighting. The deer he is running with is a year younger and a good bit smaller.

It's not always the biggest buck wins...it's the baddest.
