Its always a good sign of health to see the fat on them but Bucks load up to fortify them through the relentless breeding season. Love em and leave em until nary a one is left is how they are programmed to pursue "ready" does. Sometimes very little feeding can take place for the top end breeder bucks, and even in a healthy populations there have been many documented cases of Bucks literally "rutting to death".  Congrats on your 2016 Bow buck.
