Some Deer

Finally had a free day last week and got out for some Deer shots. Lots of Bucks around of all sizes.

A little spiker.

Enjoy Jack. You might just find yourself bringing your fishing rod with you when you go out to take photos instead of bringing your camera with you when you go fishing. Be warned.

All nice, Brooky. Give that last buck one or two more years and it'll be one for the taxidermist! And the second one has tremendous potential down the road (I'm guessing he's only 2.5 years old). smile

A little note about these Deer. They are wild. They live on an island with bridge access within our city limits. So they are not hunted. The island is over run with them. Photographing them is like shooting fish in a barrel. Often they will come right up to your vehicle and eat out of your hand.

Disclaimer... I don't claim to be an expert photographer for these shots. There are times when I've had to use macro mode for my Deer shots. But it's a fun place to bring the camera and it's only 10 minutes from home.

    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
