What is the largest group of bachelor bucks You Have Seen? I saw the largest group of bachelor bucks I have ever seen, just this year. Just curious as to what other people have seen for numbers.


You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

17 in a valley field about a month back. Most were 1 and 2 year olds with a couple 3 and ups mixed in. They will disperse into the mountains any day now. The older bucks I get on camera are almost always alone.

I can't remember seeing more than 10. I've seen a couple this year around 7-8. The vast majority 1-2 years old and a couple 3

I've seen a "group" of 18. They were all in the same bean field. There was a group if 11 one and two year olds with 100 yards of each other and about 200 yards away there was a group if 7 bucks 8pts or better within 100yards. This was last fall. This area always has the most bucks that I know if in this particular county.

11 Opening morning of turkey season 2013. Not long after rain chased my dad and I to seek shelter in a box stand, a group of 11 bucks waltzed basically single file through the woods no more than 75 yards away. Two had shed out, but the other 9 were atleast carrying one side and most were still carrying both. Was a pretty awesome sight.

I put 6, but then remembered I forgot about the huge bunch I saw 1 summer in Montana. Over 20!!! 5 true hogs and 1 probable Booner in that one. No hunting for whitetails during the rut in that zone.

I need to hunt where some of you do! :o

Biggest bachelor group I have ever seen was probably 4-5 bucks and that is a rare sighting. Average is probably 3 bucks.

I once saw a group of 21 bucks in Ohio. They came from different areas in groups of 3 or more but all met up in a big Hay field. I can still remember the last buck that came out was a monster. It was right at last night and I only ever saw one side of his rack but was able to count up to 8 points on that one side.

Last season I had eyes on one pretty regularly right after dark in a small bean field.

It was 14 or 17..I can't remember...sadly the only mature buck was sub-legal lol. Once the group broke up I hunted a known mature buck bed on the farm across the road. Of course he was using it....
