Let the games begin.........Rut is almost here.

I don't normally post my deer cam pics but thought this one was pretty neat. Set up at the edge of a fairly remote marsh island on trail from buck bedding area. Not big bucks but still pretty cool to catch on cam considering it's not on a food plot or mineral/bait pile.

Anybody else has cam pics of bucks sparring/fighting post them up. Be real cool to see them. 8-)

I don't have any pics but I did see two bucks sparing last Sat evening. It wasn't as intense as some but I don't think that those kind of fights are far off.

I had young bucks sparing fresh out of velvet early September . Last year I had 2.5's sparing in mid September. I would say it's normal. I see if I can dig up pictures

I know it's normal just thought it was pretty cool to catch on a trail camera set up basically in the middle of nowhere. What are the odds of them sparring right in front of it?

I have gotten many many pics like that. I got one last year with 3 going at it. They are always little dudes though.
Here are a few. I have tons more. My old laptop died but I kept the harddrive. Will try and pull them off when I get more time.

Dewey one of the coolest trail camera buck fight I seen was a video with sound. It wasn't mine. The sound made it spectacular

No visual evidence, but the other night my son and I were sitting a main trail coming out of a known bedding area and we could hear sparring. Wasn't crazy but it was on and off for a good 5 minutes. My son was shaking like a leaf and we didn't even see a buck lol he is 5.
