A buck in the rut knows one thing and one thing only… chasing does. It’s the one time of year that hunters have a slight advantage on these notoriously crafty animals. You’re hoping they will slip up and make a mistake out chasing a woman.
There are certainly a few parallels between humans and nature, and this is definitely one of them. Although men might not be this extreme, I’ve seen some fellas make some stupid decisions thinking they’re going to get a chance with a woman. Never seen a man chase a woman off a cliff, though…
This poor buck did.
Our man is filming on a beach in Wisconsin, off the coast of Lake Michigan, looking up at a large cliff. He notices an absolutely beautiful mature buck dead on the ground and goes over to check him out. He’s standing there wondering how on earth a buck this old, mature and smart made the decision to leap off of this cliff. Then he realizes:
“There’s another deer up here, I don’t see any horns. It must’ve been a doe and he was in the rut”
Sometimes it doesn’t take too much to figure out what went on. That is the only real explanation for something like that to occur.
This is why we need to think with our heads fellas…
