I have watched doe using their scent glands around the face to identify their seniority, when a new group shows up the doe will approach each other and sniff their scent glands, and then ears roll back and the senior doe takes control. It’s been really an eye opening experience for me to see that this year.
Watched a buck working several scrapes around a tree last night. Did the exact thing the pictures show. Fun to watch.
Good pics as always
