Dancing Rutting Buck At Scrape

Got this series of trail camera videos one night last December during the peak of the rut in my area. This young buck was feeling very frisky. I have many videos of nub bucks and smaller bucks showing some of this behavior but this was a first for me seeing this much activity at one time.
I have no idea what the hogs were doing at the end of the video.

A bucking buck. He sure was excited.

That is great! I’ve only seen yearlings do that in food plots. Never an antlered deer. Good quality video too. I see it’s a Browning and wonder if it’s red IR led lights or invisible led lights. Thanks for posting it. Also where is that?

The camera is a Browning Recon Extreme Advantage. It is not a 'no glow' camera. The Browning Advantage series of cameras take AMAZING videos. The youtube video is me recording the screen of my laptop with my iphone, so it's a video of a video. The original video has much better picture and sound quality.
As soon as serious scraping activity appears in my area I move my cameras to them and set the cameras on video mode. On this particular scrape last year I had 8-10 different racked bucks visiting it regularly. Several of the bucks I had no prior photos of even though I had a camera at a feeder location in the area. Also many does and yearlings will visit a primary scrape location. It's my belief that if you can find a good primary scrape, every deer in that area will visit it sooner or later. Just remember that not all scrapes are created equal.
I hunt in Jackson Parish.
I'll try to post some videos of doe behavior at scrapes later.
