I have been hunting for 35+ years and saw a buck breed a doe for the first time this afternoon. I watched him bedded up with her for probably two hours and right at last light she got on her feet and he was on her. He is a mature buck for sure. Will he stay locked down with her or is he done and move on to the next doe?

You can't get there from here.

Well it depends. He'll stay with her until she stops letting him mount her. Question is if she just went into heat or has been that way for a few days. If she crosses her legs then he'll move on to the next.

I watched a buck breed a doe Saturday evening and then another buck breed a doe Sunday morning in the exact same spot in a field. What are the chances.

I’ve probably seen it ten plus times and usually within 30 minutes to an hr after breeding the doe he will leave. They almost always bed down together after he breeds her from my experience

I’ve seen it three times. Once last week. Two years ago one buck bred a doe twice in about five minutes. They usually stay together two to three days. That’s the lock down phase. It’s why the peak of rut buck movement slows due to a lot of them breeding a doe for several days and don’t cover much ground looking for them.
