Roe buck chasing a doe


Well-Known Member
As Freeforester says around the end of July a roe buck is sexually interested all the time he is in hard antler and the urge gets stronger the closer it gets to rutting time.
It's not uncommon to see a buck chase a doe in June but thats not the rut.
The rut can't begin until a doe comes into oestrus which is triggered by the change in daylight and happens around about five weeks after the longest day.

It was an Axion XM30S. The buck was initially right by my high seat and then ram to the fence some 150 yds away.
