Whitetail bucks recognize the familiar flash of white as positive body language of another deer. When first seeing the swishing tail, they usually stop and stare at the deer (decoy) for a moment before moving toward it. Whitetail bucks move toward the tail swishing deer (decoy) for one of four reasons: to feed, to socialize, to dominate, or to mate. Younger bucks and does are usually more interested in socialization, especially if they’re single (alone). In late autumn and early winter it’s not uncommon to see a yearling whitetail buck or doe come to the decoy and hang out. Many yearling deer have no social group and are looking for a friend. Young single whitetails may feed in a circle around the deer (decoy).  Sometimes they wander off only to come back in a few minutes. As the season progresses, the bucks that have been intimidated by more dominant bucks are cautious about approaching another buck (buck decoy). If your hunting both sub-dominant and dominant bucks then stick with a doe decoy. Does with fawns are very reluctant to approach and feed or socialize with any unknown deer (decoy) or deer not in their social group. They normally avoid the encounter or keep their distance and show protective aggression such as snorting at the deer (decoy) to tell it to stay away from her fawns. All whitetail deer have a Personal Space Boundary (PSB). This is the distance they keep between themselves and deer (decoys) they don’t know. The distance is usually around 25-50 paces. The distance is longer with some whitetail bucks and shorter with others. Most bucks will just come so close to your decoy setup, so don’t expect a buck to try to mount your decoy. When whitetail bucks reach the PSB of another deer (decoy) they usually stop and stare. This is a great shot opportunity and you should be prepared for it. When the buck stops, take the shot! Once at the PSB, whitetail bucks may begin responding to the decoy as if it’s a real deer. This response may include: signs of aggression, submission, or a willingness to socialize. Bucks may begin to circle the decoy and get even closer. Bucks are intrigued and want to know who the deer (decoy) is. About a month before the rut kicks in, older more dominant bucks are establishing a breeding territory and trying to defend it. This is a good time to use a buck decoy to lure them out of cover and into range for a shot opportunity.    During the rut, most whitetail bucks walk straight toward a TAIL TRICK Deer Decoy when it is used as a doe. Bucks approach the decoy to see what the prospects of mating are.  It’s not uncommon for a whitetail buck to try to provoke a TAIL TRICK FOOD PLOT & RUT Deer Decoy into lifting its head (which it doesn’t have) so they can see if it’s a buck or doe. Bucks may try to intimidate this decoy with aggressive behavior such as: laying their ears back, snorting, stomping their feet, or even running back and forth. Head bobbing is very common. Don’t be fooled by aggressive whitetail buck behavior and think a buck is spooked when in fact he’s trying to interact with the deer (decoy). Shot opportunities are created when bucks approach the decoy and linger in the area waiting to see what the mating or fighting opportunities are. * Deer decoys without natural deer movement (motion) display negative body language that threatens many bucks. Negative body language (the lack of a positive social signal) creates tension for many bucks and causes them to  hang-up in cover instead of coming into your setup. The swishing tail of a TAIL TRICK Deer Decoy displays positive body language that creates confidence and attraction that lure bucks closer. Better whitetail hunting from TAIL TRICK Deer Decoys!
