    I know deer will follow turkey, foxes, and other small game to make sure it is safe, but I do not believe they make does walk first(during the rut bucks are always following does, but that is just to breed not to be safe).

      Bucks typically trail behind does, but they don't "send" the does out ahead. I doubt if their womenfolk obey them any better than ours do us.

        Its all true. They have also been known to have squirrels run ahead as scouts. lol, just a little humor there. I have seen does come through before bucks, but have also seen bucks come first. Dont think there is any planning there.

            I usually don't trek very far,
            when all around me black bears are.




            Hi...


            I think that you'll find that bucks are simply more cautious than the does.

              this isn't true. I have found that most of the time the reason for bucks showing up late is because a) they bed further away then does from a food source b) they get up later than does from their beds. If you want to see more bucks, set a stand up between the doe bedding areas and the buck bedding areas. Just be very careful not to bump any deer when you do this!!!

                does do what they want to, bucks will tend to stay more elusive though, but not in all cases...
