South Dakota Wildlife - 6 pics

11 posts in this topic

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.

I'm Jealous you go so close to the the Antelope. I had a heck of time getting that close(without some serious trespassing). nice shots.

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.

    • A teleprompter really helps to not make people look stupid.
    • Team Europe had a chance last night. Leading late into the 3rd and the wheels come off. Even with a PP with under 2 minutes left to play they give up a short handed goal!? Tough one, but Canada is certainly the better team. Glad its over so we can get our players all back with the wild, but I did enjoy the tourney even though the US was terrible.
    • That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)"  He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.  
    • Del and D2E are now officially on the same side as Nancy Pelosi... http://sfist.com/2016/09/28/pelosi_chews_out_gary_johnson_voter.php
    • What? She has a Gary Johnson button in her naval?
    • This is probably the best answer, still though, Johnson is clearly the lesser of 3 evils.
    • The bottom (and top) plate(s) of your wall are stood on end.   
    • Thats a good point about setting the stand up on the side or backside of the tree.  I probably could have done that easy enough. In a pinch i suppose I could climb the same tree with my climbing stand on the backside and hide behind my empty ladder stand. I do plan to be standing when the deer walk through.  I should be able to hear them before they get into a clearing I'm hunting over so I'll be standing by time they get into visual range.  Any guesses at home many times I end up standing up for what turns out to be a squirrel? Of course all of this could be a waste of time since right now the forecasted wind conditions are completely wrong for this spot.  If the forecast holds I've got a couple back up spots I'll hit instead and will be using a ground blind or my climbing stand.
