Intracranial Abscessation in Deer

By Bob Robb

During this year’s whitetail rut, perhaps you observed a buck fight. While most “fights” are just pushing and shoving matches often involving young bucks that don’t even know they are bucks yet, others are very aggressive encounters. Older, mature bucks do get after it and sometimes those fights can be quite vicious. However, they seldom kill each other. True, there are the rare occasions when bucks get their antlers locked and deaths occur, but most of the time the bigger bucks just put their heads together and do some major pushing and shoving. Seldom will deaths occur, at least not at the time of the fight.

Funnels

By Bob Robb

Pre-season scouting, trail cameras, and food plots. These three elements play a large role in many modern-day whitetail hunters’ bags of tricks. But when the rut is rolling and the bucks start cruising, a Ouija board might be of more benefit when it comes to getting in bow range of a mature buck.

I'm admittedly a few days late to the party on this one, but the holiday season will do that to you. According to a report from NBC affiliate KETK, a deer recently attacked two men—and then added a little insult to injury by swiping their cigarettes.

Why You Sit All Day

By Bob Robb

It’s that magical time of year, with bucks chasing does and all Hell breaking loose in places that, for much of the year, can seem like a moonscape for their lack of deer activity. This is when every second on the stand is so important.
