Since we are fairly new to buck owning, I'd really love some tips on dealing with them. Out first buck was a young guy, who was wethered at 9 months and was always easy to deal with. Our new buck is a different story. We had him qaurantined for a couple weeks in a small pen when we got him. Hes been okay to go in if you have food with you, otherwise he wants to head butt and challenge us, especially at the gate. Hes also used his horns on my husband when trying to catch him and put a collar/chain on him. I've had to distract him with feeding him treats while by husband puts his collar on. Even with a collar on hes very difficult to handle. I can't go in and clean without my husband in there watching my back, usually just smacking him with his glove is enough to get him to back off. We put him in with 2 does a couple days ago and hes gotten worse. We were in the pasture putting in a new feeder we made, my husband left the pasture and the buck would not let me out the gate. I had to pick up a twig and smack him in the nose, which made him run off and I was able to leave the pasture. This morning when I went to feed him, he started ramming the gate when I was opening it, I had heel him in the head with my boot to get him off the gate. Is there anything I can do to get a little respect from him or is this probably what I am always going to have to deal with? I feel like I need something in my hand to defend myself, I don't like having smack him but it seems like thats the only way I can get him away.
