Default Bath time for Bucks

I have seen deer wade into water to cool off but this is a first for me. These pics where taken in mid October with air temps between 65-70 degrees.

Cool pics.

We have a 1/2 acre dirt tank on our place in Brady and Ive watched bucks in October, when its hot, walk off into it and lay down.. I even saw a particular buck put his entire head under the water.. I actually saw the same buck do this twice..
It was shocking to say the least.

I have seen that happen twice during the rut when it is hot and bucks are chasing does. Doe head to water and bucks are in the water or rolling around it. I videoed a little of it both times. The last time was a group of bucks chasing a doe in late Dec. She hit the tank to get away from the buck and cool off. One buck went in after her and I videoed probably 5-6 minutes of him swimming after her as she swam in circles or figure 8's to try to loose him. One or two other bucks jumped into cool off but not chase. She finally swam ashore on the opposite side and left with all the bucks in tow.

This is what I believe. Is it just me or does the deer in the second picture look like he is wounded behind the shoulder.

The only time I have seen this on camera is when our ranch got hit with the blue tongue.

Trying to cool the fever.

I have multiple pictures of this buck before and after he took the bath and he is not injured in any way.

I think that with the rut in this area being early and the temperatures being higher than normal, these bucks were trying to cool off.

Here is a cool video of a buck trying to cool off after rutting too hard and over heating.
