    On August 21, 2012, we were scouting our hunting land and had a doe, 2 fawns and buck come into the field. The buck proceeded to mount the doe in the field with her just allowing it to happen. I have never witnessed this so early in the season. Do you think this is common, or what could be the reason at this early date?

    I've heard of does giving birth in August, but never heard of them mating that early.

      Never seen or heard of this taking place in August. Perhaps the buck was play acting much like dogs do?
      What part of the country are you in?

        I've never heard of that either, and I very much doubt it could've been actual mating behavior, maybe just "practicing"?

            Could it have been a button buck and the buck was showing dominance?
