I read a interesting article on New Data On Buck Home-Range Size by Age https://www.qdma.com/new-data-buck-home-range-size-age/

what was interesting too about the article & made me think that bucks will have a different spring, summer travels than fall\winter routes of travels. I also find by thinking back past deer seasons were unfamiliar buck deer show up for a few days to caught on cameras & vanish to be never to be seen again on camera.

Seems to me that bucks that spend the summer on us disappear about mid October till late December , during that time we get a new set of bucks then they disappear when the home bucks return.

I read an article a few years back about bucks with tracking collars and their ranges. They would suddenly shift ranges for periods of time and then just as suddenly go back. It seems that one buck had a habit of just moving several miles then basically holing up then just pick up and go home.
Go figure. I guess that is why sometimes we come up with an empty poke.

This is why I do not get excited about buck pictures I get in the summer.  A whole new set of bucks is usually around for the Oct/Nov timeframe.
