. . .looking at this picture.
I was able to check one of my homemade game cameras again today and was surprised to see that this deer was still hanging on to his headbones. This is probably one of the biggest bucks I've ever gotten on a trail camera, and the moisture in the air when this picture was taken blurred the lens on the camera! Oh well, that happens.
If you can't tell by now, I'm a trail camera fanatic. I really enjoy building them and seeing the results when I check the memory cards. Getting pictures of these animals has always fascinated me, and honestly, getting an exceptional photo of a big buck would mean nearly as much to me as actually harvesting the animal. I take lots of factors into consideration when I place a camera in the woods in an effort to capture a really nice shot.
I did get a few this time that weren't blurry. This buck has already lost his antlers and has an interesting dark spot on the top of his back. (Don't forget you can click on the pictures to open them up and view them full-size.)
This one stopped for a close-up.
What will be in store the next time I pull the memory card? Hopefully a better picture of the big boy in the picture above! Stay tuned to find out.
