    ...so my question is, is this normal or did I miss something?

    It takes a good 6 weeks for all the hormones to leave the body.

    My wether, Finn, was castrated in 2015 and recently he was spraying himself, sniffing and drinking pee, and mounting a doe in heat. Some boys never truly forget. ;)

    Luckily once they're wethered the behavior, while kinda gross, is mostly harmless. They don't stink or produce that nasty buck grease, and the urine washes right off instead of sticking to their hair like it does on an intact buck.

    It takes a month at least before all testosterone leaves the body.
