All of our bucks kinda gathered back up together around the middle of Dec.. earliest I've ever seen that happen... Dad kept the corn going at a couple spots so we could keep up with survivors... I'll post pics next weekend, but there was lots of "sparring" in last weeks pics.... I think it's just boys being boys... no particular reason
We routinely run bachelor groups throughout December in southern VA. More prevalent after the middle of the month, but we’ve still seen them early in the month. I killed a big 9 that was running with 2 other bucks on 12/1/18.
