YOU Score- Buck Jump Olympics

When I saw this burst I was reminded of watching a contest in the Olympics. I am scoring the Buck Jump on a scale of 1 to 10.

Getting mentally ready for the jump.



Pre-jump = all four feet planted firmly= 10



Style for the start of jump = body extension with front legs back = 10



Mid jump = cleared the fence with out touching it = 10



Pre-landing = Back legs extended to miss the fence = 10



Landing = A little stumble = 8



Finish = Recovered from stumble with out falling = 9



Final score 9.5 This should be a medal winner

And now for the rest of the story

This old buck had about 6 does he was keeping together and the young buck was hanging around trying to steal a couple of them. I had seen them for a couple of days but could not get to a spot for a photo opportunity. I waited in a cedar bush and got lucky here come the does and the old buck and then on the other side of the fence the younger buck showed up. The old guy keep watching him until he got to close to the fence and that was to close to the does so he jumped the fence and run him off.

Hi Roger,

Very nice series -- the thing that would have made it perfect would be if there were a a row of owls on the fence holding up those little numbered scoring plates -- :-)

Damn, I forgot to look to see if the owls were there.

Thanks Scott

A guess 3 1/2 feet. It is just a cow fence at a ranch. Thanks for the nice comment.
