Awesome PIC (Graphic weak tummys beware)

Recommended Posts

This buck was shot in WI, i got the pic from another site. It is pretty graphic and i am sure PETA will have a hayday with it. I am sure you hunters will enjoy. Not an image you get to see every day.

Very cool pict. I am a bit sceptical of it being photoshopped. IF you look at the deer you can see reflections of light through it where they should may be light through the trees behind it?

yeah i thought the same thing but even if it is photoshoped pretty sweet either way. i have been told however that getting a double image like that is due to a slow shutter speed.

If its slow shutter speed, the deer would be blurry? I know on my trail camera, if the deer are moving at any speed at all, they are blurry. But thats my camera.

If you set your flash to 2nd-curtain shutter synchronization on an SLR camera you can get effects similar to this. I have a number of times. Not sure about trail cams.

However, there's no tension in the animal, as there would be if this was shot immediately post-impact. Also, do you get that much blood at the entry point the instant after impact? Remove the background from your mind's eye for a moment and change the perspective and what this really looks like to me is someone took a shot of the dead deer lying on the ground and superimposed it against the current background.

Just IMO.

My trail camera does that when its cold. I get a "ghost image" its not uncommon.

What it looks like to me is that someone shot a buck and it ran in front of his trail camera, but that doesn't explain the jump in the air. I don't know if I've ever seen a buck do that when its hit. I do know this, it would be darn hard, and just plain lucky, to get that picture on film. It's still kind of a cool pic.

I have seen this pic around too, everyone likes to yell photoshop but is not the case. A lot of digital cameras have a slower shutter speed like stated earlier, the deer was moving so the light from the tree appears visible through the deer. Anyone with a little photoshop skill would actually make this photo look more real that what the game camera produced.

I agree with Steve, it looks like a picture of a dead deer that was superimposed on to the background. Also, the blood on the deer seems to defy gravity. The blood on the deer looks like it was from running after being shot, not an initial jump.

The ghosting actually is what makes this image look more real to me. I've seen the effect before.

I'm starting to re-evaluate a bit on one other point. I didn't see the right side of the image initially because my screen cut it off, but looking closer at that, it appears there actually is some grain (cracked corn?) in the air. It's hard to tell that it's in the air instead of on the ground, but the ground grain is sharp, and the blurry look of some of the grain that might be in the air implies motion like if the buck leapt to do the heart-kick right from the pile of grain.

I also don't like to automatically assume a compelling shot has been photoshopped.

The deer still looks relaxed to me rather than in the midst of strenuous motion like the heart-kick (I've photographed a lot of running, jumping deer, all of which showed the strain in their muscles and pose), and that seems like a lot of blood for a broadhead entry point and in a strange configuration. I also see blood on the off foreleg, which implies an exit wound, but it looks like the arrow might be long enough to have that much sticking out the entry side and still allow the tip to protrude from the other side a bit.

The grain in the air is what's making me lean a bit more toward an undoctored image, but I'm not leaning too hard in that direction. Still a few things that look unnatural to me.

Still all just IMO, still up in the air for me (if you'll pardon the pun). gringringrin

OK, I change my post and am going back to my original theory. Someone shot this buck and it took off running in front of the trail camera. How did the camera take the picture if it was running , because we all know about trigger speed? Well, look at the picture and you can see the back of the doe that set off the motion detector, the buck was right behind it, it took the picture of the buck, after the doe set it off. I say true pic, very lucky. I have my trail cams set up and could see this scenario happening. I always think of it the other way. I can see a picture getting taken of a deer I'm about to shoot, but I guess it could happen the other way to.

The tail is up in the air, not too many dead deer can pull that off. I have seen many deer jump, I have also shot 1 buck that thought he was in a movie and reared back on his hind legs, like an old western steed!

It looks authentic to me. The deer in the background also looks to be running, the flash "pattern" appears accurate, and the blood spray would indicate arterial spray or spray form the heart, which would be almost instantanous. Intresting photo!

I haven't ween a lot of trail cam pictures. Would the eye be gray like that while it's still alive? I know they gloss over after death but aren't they dark while the critter is still kicking?

Cicada, the eye is reflecting the flash, which it will do dead or alive.

fishin58, I agree dead deer can't elevate their tails, but of course if it ran and fell over and died, the tail could easily have been elevated at that point and just stayed that way.

I'm still on the fence.

Good discussion! smilesmile

I shot a doe on the opening weekend of archery season with a rage 3 blade and had twice that amount of blood instantly come screaming out of the entry hole.

Cool, hunter4life, that takes care of that point. Thanks for letting me know. My bow kills have so far been lung shots, and maybe that's why I didn't get that kind of instant blood. Or maybe not. Was yours a heart shot?

I saw this picture on a differnt site and I think the first time I saw it, it had no arrow. I could be wrong though.

How can you tell me that is a doe? All I see ia a leg and a tail.

Yes it was a heart shot. Quartering away at 25yds,lung and heart shot. I think it really had more to do with the size hole that the rage makes than anything.

I didn't read all of Mr Foss's posts, as usual.... grin but other than maybe some corn in the air it looks like dirt kicked up from the front hooves. Cool pic whatever the case, and if real that buck was smoked. Either case its a believable pic, certainly could happen unless I'm missing something obvious.

Is that more than 2 gallons of corn on the ground?

man, that deer is like 5 feet in the air. thats crazy, the arrow must have passed through some, you can see blood by the front right leg.

I understand the blood on the inside of the leg near the exit hole but not the blood on the entrance side. I have taken many deer with a bow and rarely have I ever seen that much blood on the entrance side of a arrow shot deer and still running.

Looks like a heart lung shot deer and I also question that the flag would be up with a hit like that.

I would also think the hind quarter muscles might be flexed a little for the landing and not so relaxed. To me, something just doesn't add up.

The other thing I question is it does look like it was hit in the heart, lung area and that buck should have his mouth open and breathing hard as he runs gasping for air.

If he is jumping, would his front feet not be ready for a landing and not tucked in? Also. why would his ears be dropped and the tail still up? If he is hit as hard as it looks, I would think that with the legs folded, ears dropped, that the flag would also be dropped.

I don't like to question any pictures but this one I have to say it's questionable at best.

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
