Does are somewhat selective on the bucks they allow to breed them.

There are alot more 2.5 -3.5 bucks than 4+ so I am gonna say the 2.5/3.5 will get the most tail

All the breeding Ive seen in the past has been 2 and a halfs. We rarely get a deer to 3 and a half around here.

From what most bioligist tell me.

Your older bucks will only bred three or maybe four does a season. This is even if the numbers were equal. This could be why a deer gets old he dies of old age. He not out there running all season long.


The 2 to 3 yr olds will breed 20 or more does..

Maybe the older guys get the qaulity gals. Young guns get the quanity

I think it is a rude and inconsiderate question LOL DB is asking about Deer Porn...


I would say the Dominate Buck of the area gets the most tail...I also think that a 3.5 yr old Buck looks like he is very fit and in great shape to run more...The older they get,seems like all that running would just hurt them by losing all the weight....

We have a few 4.5 yr old bucks on the property,age does not mean they are the dominate buck...Our Dominate Buck is a 9 point 3.5 yr old...I seen him run the older buck off !!! I thought they were going to bang heads for a minute and then the older buck walked on...It was a learning time for me when i seen that...It looked bass akwards

In New York it's yearlings cause older bucks are few and far between.

I agree that 2.5's and 3.5's "get busy" more than the rest.

As I was leaving the range this morning on my way to work however there was a solid 4.5 (at least) y.o. buck following a doe. It is an awesome sight when you see a 150ish inch buck like that .........so full of stupid that he doesn't even notice me taking pictures of him. The doe noticed me and quietly walked away from the road and off to the bedroom. I felt like a voyeur or something!

I just heard on tv that mature bucks breed between 1 - 3 does during the breeding season and that the majority of the breeding is done by younger bucks.

I don't know...From about 11/7 to 11/10 I saw a ton of serious chasing in Western NY. No spikes or little forkies were doing the chasing. I saw 4 good shooters and lots of decent bucks. Now, I did see lots of spikes and forkies but they were just wandering around looking..not chasing. I don't think they were invited to the party

Ah to hunt the big woods of western NY. I should have said all the areas I hunt are void of big bucks so I assume the spikes and forkys I see chasing are doing the breeding. Of course I'm part of the problem, a wall in my garage is covered with small racks. The last several years I've held out for "big bucks", two year old cookie cutter eight's as we call them, but I haven't seen a big buck in the woods in a long time.
