Interesting Deer Study: This is a Must Watch!!

Post  Godfather on Fri Oct 16, 2015 8:20 am

I found this blog while surfing the web the other night and I think that this study is simply fascinating! They radio collared a buck and followed him for a couple of years. Please take the time to watch some of this as I think it will give everyone some great insight to the travels of a whitetail buck during the course of a year.

That was interesting for sure. I would love to collect data like this on a few of my deer. Especially a buck that is 5+. They always seem to be a step ahead, almost like ghost at age 5 and 6.

Very interesting John. This is only about an hour south east of me. And a half hour west of Rick. The fact that the buck went to this one place to die is pretty weird.

Very interesting !! Yes I know this area , it almost compares to Vic's area , just the mountains aren't quite as tall but still have some very steep sides. I would love to compare dates to movement ( in the video with the 3 blue circles ) to see just what days they were. I'm betting when you see a lot of daytime movement will go along with opening day and both Saturdays when more guys are in the woods. This area does see a bunch of hunters , but only certain spots , mainly the easy to get to ones !! Plus it used to get driven hard , 10-20 years ago it was nothing to see 20 guys driving the mountains.
That ridge top reminds me of the right side of brooks run road , up top from rt. 872 back a few hundred yards. The top is about 3 feet wide with a view down both sides .

Really fascinating!  Not far from where I hunt, I would love to see the results of a gps collared old buck.  These deep forest mountain bucks are tough to pattern with no agriculture in their range to help draw them.  They really like the steep sided ridges and will bed down in small depressions where a tree has fallen downhill as it is the only spot where the wouldn't slide.  
      I'll be studying it further!
