It’s always fun to see big bucks fighting and getting after it, but when it happens in summer while their antlers are still in velvet it can be a bit confusing.
This buck fight captured by Whitetail Properties shows how bucks spar in summer while still in velvet. This seems a bit more than sparring because they’re really going after it. The soft velvet can be damaged and if the antlers are still growing, it could create something unique like a dent, hole or broken tine. Maybe this buck fight happened just before they started to slough off the velvet, though.
Deer & Deer Hunting Editor-in-Chief Dan Schmidt lends some insight in this Whitetail Wisdom post provided by researcher John Ozoga about why bucks spar while they’re still in velvet.
If a male is to achieve a social rank before the breeding season, he must interact with other males of any size. A sparring match often begins when one buck approaches another, lowers its head and presents its antlers. During early autumn, soon after velvet shedding, the second buck usually accepts the invitation to spar. In skill sparring, a buck gains knowledge of his antlers’ size and configuration relative to that of other bucks.
Check out the video and then read the rest of the Whitetail Wisdom post for the rest of Ozoga’s insight.

If you’re a bowhunter and ever have wondered whether a shot was a good hit or a miss, then you’re likely not using lighted nocks to help you see what’s going on.
Before you get down from your stand and find your arrow to check for blood, a lighted nock can give you a great visual indication of a hit. Compound bows are so fast that while we may see an arrow punch the ribcage without lighted nocks, they’re definitely a benefit for assurance that you made a good shot.
Most states have approved the use of lighted nocks and a few have not. That’s a shame, because a lighted nock doesn’t give you any advantage when you’re scouting deer, hunting deer or shooting your bow. None.
All a lighted nock does is provide you with an assurance of if and where you hit the deer. If you heard the deer fall then cool, you can go find it. Or the lighted nock gives you a starting point for the blood trail and whether to go or wait. Either way, lighted nocks help deer hunters do one of the most important part of hunting — making the effort to bloodtrail and retrieve our game.
Watch the video above to see how helpful it is to have lighted nocks to follow the shot.
Get the Easiest Lighted Nocks to Turn On and Off!
Light the way with Clean Shot Nock-Out lighted nocks, the only lighted nock that allows you to deactivate the LED when you’re not using it. Avoid the frustration of switching between a regular nock and a lighted nock by simply deactivating the LED – just a simple 1/4 turn of the nock collar will do it! Even turning the LED off while the nock is in use is easy, and requires no tools. Just pull the nock straight back until you hear a “click” and the light turns off. See it here …
