Awesome Blacktail Buck Grunting Video
« on: November 14, 2020, 02:18:26 PM »
I recently captured this 10 second video of a blacktail buck on one of my trail cams. He comes in, lets out a little grunt, then lets out a grunt like I've never seen or heard before.
Truly fascinating in my opinion!
The date and time is correct.

What amazes me is that all these years, the general consensus was that BTs were not vocal at all.  The advent of trail cams with sound and PC hunting forums, the word slowly spread that the original thinking wasn't correct at all.  Every year we get more and more buck and doe vocalizations caught on camera and hear stories of groups of bucks snort wheezing or grunting at each other. 

I think I would call this buck's noise only a really big grunt since I don't hear a wheeze portion of his explosion (by my ears aren't the best).   

Here's a good example of a BT snort wheeze starting at 4 min 6 sec into the vid.

Fishnfur - thanks for sharing that video. I'm curious - where is it filmed? I've never seen a ringtail cat in WA state before. I have seen them in Oregon though. I did fast forward to the 4 minute mark so maybe I missed it if they mentioned the location.

No idea.  It's not my vid.  If you click on the title at the top, it will open in Youtube and you can check the description from the person who posted it.  If it's not in the description, you can ask him/her in the comments section if that option is open.

He's out of Newberg, OR. Not sure where it was filmed though.

From the looks of the slope, I'd guess higher elevation Cascades, especially since he mentioned the deer feeding on lichens, which is also typical of higher elevations (I believe).  The ringtail really throws a question into it, since the range of that animal stops around S. Oregon Cascades, which is a long, long ways from Newberg.

I have a pretty sweet video of a spike grunting his little butt off while chasing a doe

If it had sound, I'm pretty sure it sounded something like the bucks above.  Sadly...... >:(

There is a lot of unknown about the range of the ringtail cat. The maps have not been updated in decades and their range was much farther north in the '70s than anyone actually knew about. I'm sure they range up to near the Columbia river by now.

With all the cams out there during the rut these days, I look forward to seeing more blacktail videos of bucks in action.

Quite possibly true, though the critter seems to be limited to arid areas, which might put this vid on the E. side of the Cascades, which would account for the massive bones on those two bucks (benchlegs).  Fun thread even though we got off topic.
