Let me start by saying this will be a long post with a lot of photos....so it will be done in continuation of several posts on this thread.
I have been hunting almost everyday since the start of archery season and it was hot, then acorns hit, then it rained and finally it got cooler in late Oct. The last week of archery season the bucks really moved well and I thought it was going to be a good season. Then the green-up hit and the acorns were on the ground thick after the strong winds and the deer vanished. Not much at the blinds and nothing on trail cams. This week has been really cold for down here with overcast and misty rain. I have rattled and used a grunt tube a few times over the past 2 weeks with no response from even a 1.5 yr old. This morning it was 40 and misty with dark overcast and I saw very few deer. Yesterday was the same way with a high of 43. Today was high of 45. I got to blind at 3:30 and immediately started seeing deer and had a mature buck come in with a doe. She left and there had to have been another buck in the brush he went after to run off. He made almost a complete circle around me to try to find her and never did after she left him. Then other bucks started hitting the feed and road corn about 4:45. At about 5:10 I had a buck show up that I had not seen in about 2 weeks and then a buck I had seen a few times over the past month showed up. As soon as I saw their posture I knew what was about to take place. They were to far apart at first and it was extremely dark and overcast. I had my camera setup to take photos with low light and not for movement. I scrambled after the first 15 pics to reset the camera after the fight started. Some of these pics will be very blurry and out of focus but I will include a few to show the power and strength of the bucks as they fight and try to gain leverage on one another. It will be in about 6 or 7 posts of 10 photos. There will be gaps in sequence of photos as I reset camera and some photos that just were to out of focus to include. This fight lasted just over 2 minutes with a surprise addition that I was not expecting.... So stay tuned.... grin

Just about the time the buck had won and was in the process of running off the loser....this guy decided he wanted in on the action. As the two bucks fought bucks were running around them and this buck plus 2 more came running in on the downwind side.

Wow amazing photos. I can't imagine the sounds that was made. Sound like the others wanted a piece of the winner.
Thanks for sharing.

A doe decided she wanted to check out what all the ruckess was about and got the winner of both fights attention....
[Linked Image]
She came to the cross fence and went under with him in tow....then she went back under it and down the ROW...
[Linked Image]
And then the "Boss" showed up and decided it was time to adjust this guys attitude down a notch....
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]
A loud snort wheeze was all it took to change the 8pts mind....
[Linked Image]
The 10 pt kept trying to get the 8pt to come across the fence and when he did he went after him....

I thought I was going to see one buck get into 3 fights within a few minutes of each other but in the end he had enough.
The surprise is that I never fired a rifle shot but took a couple of hundred pics of the fights.

I will have to range it tomorrow but going to say 60 yards. Almost all the pics are not cropped so they were closer than 80 yards.
