Shootin' Whitetails

Bucks

Fri, July 12, 2013

B2013

I took this shot the other night of a young buck in velvet. As always it seems like I spend too little time behind the lens and too much time working. I have not been much this year to keep track of the local deer herd. The few times I have been out I have seen plenty of does with fawns. I have not been able to locate many bucks yet and the ones I have seen have been young bucks. I hope I can get out more in the near future and find some bruisers in velvet. Is anybody seeing any good bucks yet?

Been slow so far.  Got a pic a couple of days ago of a decent buck.  Checking a bunch of cameras tomorrow so hopefully I have something to get excited about.

I’ve been seeing the same 4 young bucks for a couple weeks off the road.  They’re down to 3 now.  Found one laying in the ditch this evening.  No good ones yet but still got my fingers crossed.  Plenty to eat this year and an abundance of fresh water so things are looking up.
