I started hunting on this lease near Ozona last year. I started seeing smaller Mule Deer and Whitetail bucks around Thanksgiving. The rut really kicked off about 2 weeks after Thanksgiving. So, when I had 3 smaller (9 point, 8 point and 5 point) Mule Deer bucks show up this opening weekend I really didn't think much of it. On Monday the 9th, the 8 and 5 points showed up. When they saw each other they laid their ears back and started walking toward each other. The 5 walked up into the brush and I could hear him hooking a tree. The 8 went into the brush also. I grabbed the new point and shoot camera that I just bought but I thought they were going to fight up in the brush. Then they walked out and I got it all on video. It was very loud and violent. The 5 whipped the 8point, then followed him around all morning but the 8 didn't want anything to do with him.

The next morning all 3 were back out and the 9 and 5 were sparring. About 30 mins went by and I looked up and they were locked up. I thought it was the 9 and the 5, but it turned out it was the 5 and 8 again. This time they fought for quite a bit longer. It wasn't nearly as violent this time.

This is the first time I've ever seen this in person and it was awesome. I combined the 2 fights into 1 video and posted on youtube.

Please enjoy...I did!!!

Thanks for saying that. It was a little shaky in the beginning. Right before they fought the first time and they were circling, it looked like they were going to walk back into the brush and I wasn't going to get it but it worked out.

saw a nice 4x4 and a decent sized 8 get into one afternoon up around childress. It was violent, they were pushing each other through cedar and mesquite brush like it wasn't even there. Like you said, very loud and intense. Ended up shooting the 8 the very next morning.

I saw the same thing out of 3 mule deer bucks Saturday morning. The ones I was watching were not quite as aggressive, but they were getting after it. I was in the northern part of Crockett County.

I always heard WT's were to aggresive for Mule deer, but I saw a muley put the smack on a WT couple a years ago, thought he was gonna kill him. Great video!
