Q & A of the WEEK:

Question: Will the bucks I’m seeing now still be on my property during hunting season?

Answer: Bucks often shift within their home range as summer turns to fall. This may mean that they do not frequent an area as much during the fall as they did during the summer months. This can be influenced by, but not limited to, dominance/subordination, food sources, and individual buck characteristics.
