This past weekend(Oct 19-20) I had 2 reports from respected bow hunters who observed mature bucks bumping does around a field. I’ve previously seen younger bucks doing this in this time frame, what’s been your experience?

When I was planting last Thur and Fri I talked to a couple of hunters that had seen some mature bucks up and harassing does those cool mornings, the last few days of Oct for us is normally the start of the best 10 days of the year.

I had a couple younger bucks bumping and one spike chasing and grunting pretty aggressively but other than that no significant mature deer sightings of this behavior yet. West Michigan
