Default 3rd rut?

I had four bucks chase 2 does by me last Tuesday here in NW ILL. Six more bucks came in shortly after and bedded down 40 yards from my stand for over 30 minutes (no shot at the 2 shooters).

I had two does run past me the night before and just assumed a coyote, etc. had them stirred up.

I also saw buck sparring both nights...and one actually lost an antler in the process. Do you think they are sparring to speed up the process of losing them?
