You’d be lucky to witness one mule deer battle in person—but Kimberly G. of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was incredibly fortunate to see TWO battles at the same time, right in her own backyard.
Kimberly grabbed her phone when two juvenile bucks started sparring, and was likely shocked to hear the telltale clash of antlers from yet another fight happening at the exact same time—this time with much bigger bucks.
Check out the action (and make sure to watch the last 20 seconds or so):
2 sets of bucks battle in Colorado
BUCK BATTLE!This is some of the coolest video sent to our newsroom this year!Two sets of deer were fighting on the northwest side of Colorado Springs this month. Check out the AMAZING footage sent to us by Kimberly G!https://www.kktv.com/content/news/Buck-battle-caught-on-camera-in-Colorado-Springs-566367011.htmlPosted by KKTV 11 News on Thursday, December 19, 2019
It’s cool to watch the does and younger males running back and forth in front of the camera. Quite the herd.
Eventually, one of the big boys “wins,” and turns his attention to the smaller bucks.
He waits patiently for an opening, then absolutely smokes one of the youngsters. The juvenile bucks make the wise decision to scatter, leaving the big buck to his reward. Which is probably a hot doe somewhere nearby.
Very cool stuff.
