Exciting Trail Camera Picture

trail camera picture buck

While my camera was taking this trail camera picture I was deer hunting 13 yards from this buck. I was filming him for 15 minutes.

I recently got and exciting trail camera picture. Bow season started yesterday here in Kansas and I was able to get out this morning and finally was able do some deer hunting.

I hunted a lock-on stand that is right behind our house. The wind was supposed to be out of the southwest this morning according to the weather report on yahoo but when I went outside the wind was out of the southeast and I decided the stand behind the house was okay to hunt with a southeast wind. I headed out with plenty of time to get in the stand before daylight. I finally got settled in as daylight was cracking and after a few minutes I looked to my right and I see horns heading my way from about 70 yards through a small strip of trees. The adrenaline started pumping as I swung my camera arm slowly around and got my camera ready. The buck was in no hurry and after what seemed like forever he finally made his way down a path that led to about 13 yards from the tree I was in. I kept thinking how good it was to be deer hunting again and how much I missed these moments during every day of the off season.

Trail Camera Picture

The exciting trail camera picture I got was when the big brute walked right up and stood in front of my trail camera as I filmed him with my Canon XhA1s.

I didn’t have any trail camera pictures of this buck before I got this one.

I was was trying to score him and see if he would make Pope and Young and I think he just might have made the score but I kept thinking about the buck I have been getting tons of trail camera pictures of across the road on another piece of property that I have permission to hunt on. He was bigger than this buck, but this buck sure tempted me as he stood broadside at 13 yards for 15 minutes. I was proud of myself for holding out on the big boy and he sure will be nice next year if he makes it through to next season. I know there is no guarantee of that but that’s the chance you take to let them get big and it’s a risk I willing to take to hopefully get a chance at a sure enough stud next year. And I know there are bigger bucks on some of the deer hunting properties that I have access to. I was able to get some great footage of him and I am trying to come up with a name for him and build a little history with him. I hadn’t gotten any pictures of him before yesterday and I didn’t know that until I pulled my card and checked it when I came out this morning. It was great to be out chasing whitetails again and a great way to start the season off. I think I might just head back out to the same stand in the morning. I plan on shooting a few does this year and tomorrow would be a great day to get some meat in the freezer, unless a bigger buck shows up. I don’t think I could hold out on a buck much bigger than him.
