South Dakota Wildlife - 6 pics

Recommended Posts

South Dakota is full of different kinds of wildlife. I didn't realize that I would see so many different critters. The whitetails were like ticks they were so thick and of course there were plenty of Antelope.

Sweet images, Mike. I like how that velvet buck looks like he's talking to you. I can see a cartoon bubble coming from his mouth with some snappy phrase. grin

Thanks Guys. Steve, he was probably telling my son to stop making donkey noises at him. The buck wouldn't look at me so my son started making these rediculous donkey noises at him. It worked and it was hilarious.

Paul, I shot these at Custer State Park. They're wild animals but they're pretty used to people so it wasn't too hard. They are all full frame shot from the car.

I like the 4th one. Something about the grass on his head is pretty cool.

I like these Mike, the first shot with the flies and the grass on the fourth one are cool.

Mike those are all good, I really like both the buck antelope don't get to see them until I travel out there in the fall, unlike the buck deer it looks like the antelope have their headgear already fully developed.

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
