This is some of the most amazing scrape sequences I have captured to date. Big ol' mature brusier buck bloodied up from fighting. When we first got a passing photo of the deer we set out to find his scrapes. Set up on this one and nailed him bang on. I am impressed. Panasonic LZ8.

Really cool pics Daryl.....he looks like a real bad boy, and you have to wonder what the other participant in that fight looks like?

Nice catch. That's a big white-tail; from the diameter of those antlers he's got a few years on him.

This buck is the only other buck that has blood in the area. He is probably a mature deer as well. They never show at the scrapes anywhere near same times. No way to be certain for sure but he uses the scrapes as wel just not as often. Whereas the bloody one is there daily and nightly.

The last pic shows all the blood on this buck.

I'm always amazed at the bodies on the deer you post.  They look like cattle[biggrin]
When I look at the smiles on all the children's faces, I just know they're about to jab me with something.

Awesome pics Daryl. Both bucks have a huge neck on them. I don’t think I’ve ever seen bucks with blood on them like that. Woulda been nice to watch that fight.
