The following pics were taken on one of our food plots. Has anyone else gotten pictures of deer fighting, even though it looks like they are both spikes. We have been hunting for the last two weeks and we have only killed two does. If not for my two homebrew cams taking pics of some nice deer, I would be pretty disappointed with the season so far.

Data Good pics. I think the smaller deer spar around a little but dont really get into the fighting like the bigger ones. Kind of like the Jake turkeys learning their pecking order. Thanx for sharing.          Fubar

I haven't gotten any pics of them fighting but have a little video of them mock fighting like Fubar said. Small deer, spikes, forkhorns. But they do it all. Ears back, walk sideways towards each other. Pretty cool to watch.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow!  I'd love to get some pix like that too.

A friend of mine just this past week killed two bucks that were fighting.  He was on his treestand seeing nothing when he hears them start clashing off in a thicket.  So, he climbs down, sneaks up on the two bucks going at it, watches them for a bit, then shoots them both.  They weren't monsters, mainly cull bucks, but how many hunters get that kind of luck?

Way to go Data!
I sure do like those. Nice job on that setup.
I agree with you on the lack of activity this deer season. I've seen a few small bucks and one "decent" buck but just knowing they're out there (thanks trailcams!) makes the hunting that much more enjoyable.
