More Stuck Up Buck

A doe was browsing in the woods when I noticed a buck come out of the gulch and walk in the doe’s direction. I took my first picture as he walked along the woods edge by the gulch. It was the “Stuck Up” buck.

SU-963

Stuck Up walked into the trees where the doe was browsing. The doe looked up but otherwise completely ignored him.

SU-968

He paused a few steps from the doe.

SU-981

Then Stuck Up swung his head and antlers up into the overhanging tree limbs and grabbed a limb in his mouth.

SU-980

He pulled and yanked on a limb and I got a few more photos.

SU-982

Stuck Up raked his antlers on the low limbs and mouthed and licked branches for a couple of minutes. I zoomed in a little closer.

SU-974

Once he was done he looked around the area.

SU-975

A few days ago I hung a Magnum Scrape Dripper (from Whitetail Research Center) on the fat limb in the picture. This limb is the vereran of many years of buck raking and marking and the ground underneath has hosted plenty of scrapes.

SU-990

Stuck Up stopped by the fat limb and looked all around the area. If you knew where it was you would be able to recognize the Scrape Dripper on the limb.

SU-993

Afterward he stepped into the nearby woods and was gone. When I looked at the pictures I took I noticed this one and added it to the mix.

SU-013

Last year he was an 8-point with a few noticeable stickers. This year he is a 10-point with more and longer stickers.

Life is good in the deer woods.
