How do roe buck generally behave after the rut?

I have been told they lie low for a good while whilst they regain their energy, how long does this period of minimal activity normally last??

Got to agree with that!!!

So far about 18 outings, 1 buck

Looking forward to the fabled rut then find myself at work for the duration, such is life :)

A bit like Mudman. 11 outings- 0 Buck.
Mine is arable and livestock. Masses of rape, which roe disappear into, then spirit themselves away when this is cut.
Once the wheat is harvested I find them, but as for the rut, I seldom see any activity.

After the rut Bucks do what a great many men do. Roll over and go to sleep :lol:

No they always seem to go to ground after the rut, but then start to show more in mid to late September, and in September you can sometimes get a false rut with Roe.

I came back from holiday yesterday and managed to get back and have a look at my bit of ground today. It looks like I had 2 or 3 bucks and does doing the chasing through the wheat while I was away and the farmer noticed the damage as well so I am off out asap. Now, what I would like to know is, is it too late to try calling them? Are they too shagged out now to bother?
Think I will go away a different month next year. I have not seen any Roe on the ground since may and then they turn up while I am away!! Typical!

Rut

I took 3 animals at the weekend that were still involved in rutting activity and a friend of mine saw a buck today displaying clasic rutting signs so dont writ it off completely yet.

No point in calling if there are no does in season in the area - the bucks will know that something is wrong. So if the rut's over, forget it.

with mole on this
but like i told you when you were up with me
try the call if you can see the buck , that way you will tell by the bucks behaviour if he is interested , if he is you know the results :lol:
if not then leave the call in your pocket and let the bugger rest
start on them elusive fallow ;)
take care ole mate
