This time of year is great for seeing and photographing Whitetail Bucks in bachelor groups. I spotted this group late one morning at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
Whitetail Buck Facts and Camera Settings:
These are groups of bucks that travel together during the spring and summer and generally follow the same movement schedule of bedding and feeding. Bachelor groups may contain bucks of many different ages, including yearlings. Bucks in an individual bachelor group are usually not related to each other.
As the rut approaches and testosterone continues to rise, bucks gradually become less tolerant of each other, and the bachelor groups break apart. (QDMA)
