Sparring Whitetail Bucks

The episodes picture here of sparring whitetail bucks don't even begin to take on the characteristics of a vicious encounter. Rather, consists of bluffing, posturing, and other threatening behavior to intimidation the other whitetail buck. To be sure, whitetail bucks spar for breeding and domain rights and these two sparing whitetail bucks is invariably very toned-down in terms of aggressive intent, the whitetail bucks merely bring their heads together, engage their racks, push one another, twist their necks two to three times and then quickly separate and return to feeding within yards of each other.
