Scent-Marking Buck

The rut must be beginning! I've had a camera at the Delaney WMA for
several months, and have been getting video of nothing but does and
fawns. About a week ago, a spike buck showed up on camera, and then
this monster moved in. I guess he liked the location I picked, because
he chose the same tree I did to leave his calling card for the does.

I was in a rush when I picked up the camera, but noticed that the ground
was torn up right in front of it. I didn't realize it was a fresh
scrape from the largest buck I've ever seen, or I would have left the
camera in place.
