The Season is Almost Over

Posted: December 6, 2016

That's right, it's mid-December and that means rifle season - and the breeding season - are just about over. But we still have a movie to share!

Over the past month we shared with you movies of several different bucks and then let you try to figure out when they started their crazy rutting movements.

Here's Buck 12755 and his movements from October 1st through November 20th in 2015.

After you watch this movie you can make your best guess as to when his rut movements began. We'll summarize the results from all 4 bucks next week. I've already taken a peek at your answers and I think you'll find them pretty interesting.

Here's the movie! 

Watch this movie as many times as you like. When you think you know when this buck begins and ends his rut movements, enter your dates in the online survey. The survey will be open until 11pm on December 12, 2016. 

Enter your dates here

We ended the movie on 20 November because that's when bear season starts. Although there is still some breeding that occurs through the end of November, the bear season and rifle season have a greater influence on buck movements than finding the love of his life.
