It's Iowa in November, which means big bucks are on the prowl searching for hot does in estrous and also defending their territory. Josh Dornbusch knew Scarface the decoy could get the job done, and the mature buck that spied this decoy couldn't stand it. This great deer hunting tactic paid off once again.

Bucks don't have territories but they do have home ranges where they cruise during the pre-rut and peak-rut periods looking for does. Because of the pecking order among whitetails, bucks that see other bucks often will challenge them. It could be a young buck feeling its oats or another mature buck itching for a fight. Whatever the case, hormones and the need to be the boss buck takes control. That's one reason using a decoy can be one of the best things to use for deer hunting in autumn during the rut phases.
