Two nights ago, a 6-point smaller buck showed up on some of the trail camera shots. He is new to the area and I wondered how long it would be until he encountered the 8-point daddy buck who's territory he had invaded.
Last night they met. For a little while, there were several shots of them eating in close proximity. That most certainly did not last long. Soon the stare down began.
Big daddy buck finally said enough. The shots of the enounter are just blurs of activity. The smaller buck concedes moving back and fades into the night. Several hours later he returned but big daddy had already finished the nights rations.
