    My bucks have been playing pretty rough lately, and a few nights ago, Couragous knocked off his scur, and it was bleeding alot, it stopped after I went and looked, theres dried up blood on the right side of his face, it seems to be ok now. But they are still playing and fighting with eachother.

    Anything I can do? :shrug:

    get some blood stop powerder incase it opens up and bleeds again. the new area is probably making him want to stake his claim as the high ranking buck

    Thats true! Thanks, im going to the feed store today, I will pick some up.

    Normally hes super calm, hes older than Jasper, but he doesnt really care about anything, very laid back boy. Jasper, on the other hand, is the one that started it. I was feeding and he got really mad and started challenging Couragous, hopefully it doesnt happen again, but both of them seemed fine, just really excited.

    Should I clean it with anything?

    if there is dry blood on his face you can clean that off but the wound itself will be fine - the blood actually helps to cleanse the wound.
