Button Bucks

Posted by admin On July - 28 - 2009

Many hunters want to protect buck fawns, those inglorious “button bucks.” Identifying button bucks can be tough, but you can do it. Button bucks often travel alone; adult does, rarely. Buck fawns are squarish in body shape, whereas mature does are more rectangular. Glass the deer’s head. Even if you can’t make out the antler buds, a buck’s head is flat between the ears compared with a doe’s more rounded skull.
