A young (1 1/2 to 2 1/2-year-old) buck dubbed OH aka One-Horn
Prairie grasses surrounded by woods and farm fields
OH or One-Horn is a rare exception to young, White-tailed buck behavior. He's the most gentle, calm teenage buck I've met to date. While Dennis, Tiny G. and to a smaller degree Prancer act unpredictably and to some degree aggressively towards young does and fawns, OH remains calm and passive. I've never seen him rear-up with hoofs flailing, jab with his antlers or hoof-slap except to defend himself against the initiated attacks of Dennis or Tiny G.. More often than not, I find him traveling with another passive buck dubbed Daddy or with does and their fawns from this spring. Still being a buck, the does give him space or respect but without the jumpiness or fear I see them exhibit around the other bucks.
