When I first started deer hunting back in 1980 the way we would take pictures of our harvest was with a Polaroid camera. You would take the picture and then the pull it out of the camera and fan it in the air and watch it develop right before your eyes. Some of my favorite memories of deer hunting were captured on film by way of Polaroid the are some of my favorite pictures deer hunting. The way we take take pictures of deer these days is much easier than back in the day. We used to have to get the film developed. So you would have to wait until you finished the roll of film and then take it to Eckerds and wait to have it developed, you could pay extra and get it developed that day. Today we just store our pictures of deer right on our computer. It makes things so much easier.
I have a photo album of all of my past memories deer hunting. It is fun to pull it out and recall some of the bucks that I harvested in the past. It always brings back so many fun times in the great outdoors. I have always saved my photos of past hunts and am sure glad that I did. I have some great ones.
I wanted to show you some of my favorite photos of the 2008 season, it has been a great season so far for me. I made a lot of memories that I will cherish forever.
Pictures Deer Hunting
I took this buck in November.
I was able to harvest a trophy buck bow-hunting Illinois.
Bow-hunting Illinois is a great way to harvest a big buck like this one it is one of my favorite pictures deer hunting.
These are just a few of my favorites from 2008. I am already excited about next season.
Payton’s first deer is a trophy buck.
These big bucks were taken in Georgia.
Down south hunting the rut can be action packed.
Check out this truck load of big bucks. My good friend Brad sent me these pictures taken down south hunting trophy bucks. It looks like they had a great season down south hunting. This picture shows that this club has been doing some good quality deer hunting management. It looks like the trophy bucks were on the move, looking for love in all the wrong places.
These trophy bucks were all taken down south hunting within a three day period during the rut, at their club in Monroe county in Georgia. It just shows that the best time to harvest big bucks is when they are in full rut and chasing does. It is a very exciting time to be in the woods, when the big bucks are on the move looking for does in estrous. The whitetail respond to calling and scents more during the rut as well. It looks like there was some great rutting action down south hunting this year. In order to achieve good quality deer management, it is imperative to get the buck to doe ratio to at least 1:3 buck to 1:2, or 1:1 is best.
We are proud to have Brad join our Pro-staff. He has years of experience in the great outdoors and knows how to get after those whitetail bucks.
Also on our Pro-staff is Jay. Jay is has harvested some very nice whitetails and loves to bow hunt, and we are sure glad to have him on board. He is guaranteed to keep everyone laughing. This picture shows Jay practicing a little quality deer management.
Use last minute strategies to get that late season buck.
I am going to have to figure out some last minute strategies to get that big buck deer hunting.
Last Minute Strategies For Big Bucks
I have been doing some studying and I have decided to find the thickest area on our property it is a favorite one of my last minute strategies. I am studying aerial photos and topo maps. Whitetails like to bed just over the edge of a ridge where they can look downwind for some distance and smell any danger approaching them from behind. I am trying to imagine that I am one of those big bucks and start thinking like him. The thing is once you find the thickest stuff now you look at it in relation to the food source he is using.
The whitetail rut is all but over, and food and water are his number one priority now. By studying the trails leading to and from the bedding area, if most of the tracks on a trail are going to the bedding area I will hunt that in the morning, and if they are leading away from the bedding area I will hunt that trail in the evening. I will try to get as close to the bedding area in the thickest stuff possible. The big bucks love the thick stuff when the pressure is on and it’s late in the season. Now I have to admit that I don’t enjoy hunting where there is a limited sight distance, but by doing so this time of year I will definitely increase my odds of harvesting a mature trophy whitetail.
There are 13 days left in our season here in Georgia, time is definitely of the essence, but I haven’t given up just yet. It is never to late to get that monster buck, one thing is for sure you can’t get him from your bed. I had a buddy take the biggest buck of his life on the last day of the season one year. Get out there folks.
