And there are instances when that fighting follow heats up and the battle will get critical.

The bucks have been mixing it up this year, also. This morning, in advance of daylight, various deer shadows took shape exactly where I was observing from a ground blind. Just after daylight, a buck humped his back up and rigid-legged toward yet another buck.
