    Has the rut started?

    Just seen a large buck hot on the heels of a doe.
    they were oblivious to me watching from the car.

    I know when its supposed to be,

    it was definately not a yearling it was a 6 point big burger,
    and he was closely following a doe, with a glint in his eye,

    I've seen old bucks following young does, also chasing young bucks as well as old bucks fighting. Pretty normal for this time of the year when their setting up their patch.

    Saw it a couple of years ago on some neighbouring ground, a big buck and a yearling both chasing a doe across open fields, she kept trying to get back to her home wood but the big lad kept pushing her back, the yearling just tagged along behind the big one. Later that same day half a mile away on my patch saw them again as the buck chased chased her out of my wood.

    I think it was 6pointer at that time who said said she may well have just dropped kids and the bucks had got confused by the scents.
