Buck Rub...


It has been a long time since I have had the chance to photograph big game. Don't get me wrong I really enjoy photographing birds but I would rather be photograph deer and elk. I thought I would dip into last years files and bring up some whitetail photographs. This nine point buck has been posted on this site numerous times in the past and I am looking forward to getting back to SNP next month and hopefully photographing him again with new antler growth. These were taken last fall during the rut. I followed him for sometime waiting for him to look at me, he only did a couple of times real quick. He was kind enough to stop and rub this tree. I had trouble getting an unobstructed view of him and the whole time I was wishing the D90 was not laying in the truck so I could take some video, but in the end I was very happy to have spent time watching and photographing him.

Please stop by Shane's blog for a new post today.

It's a great moment to capture! Nice and close too! We can't just walk around with the bucks around here at all!
