Pictures shed hunting around food sources is a great place to look for sheds.
I have been keeping corn out and I even put out some new mineral lick spots and Trophy Rocks and I have gotten several pictures shed hunting of some big bodied bucks that had already dropped their headgear.
Pictures Shed Hunting
The only bucks that I have gotten pictures shed hunting lately that are still carrying their headgear are smaller bucks. I just wish I could find one nice antler, I see all these guys finding truckloads of bone and I can’t seem to find a decent drop. I know I’ve got big bucks on the properties I’m deer hunting they are all over my trail camera pictures. I have been out a few times shed hunting, but I haven’t had any luck though. I definitely need to get me shed hunting dog. How about you have you been able to do any shed hunting? I have heard of several nice bucks antlers being found and just yesterday one of my buddies said he saw a nice big buck the other day in Missouri that was still carrying, so I guess a few of the bucks are still hanging on to their horns.
I got a lot of trail camera pictures in February.
Oh well, I’ll get back out in the next couple of days and see what I can find. I have been living here in the mid-west for almost three years now and every spring I hear people talking about getting out and looking for mushrooms. Being from the south I never even heard of Morrells until I came here, but from what I here they are very good so this year I am gonna have to try them. I just keep asking myself how good can a mushroom actually be? I guess well see, I bet if they are as good as they say they are the deer probably love them.
It is almost time to plant those food plots so now is a good time to get those soil test done to get that lime out before it’s to late. Also it’s a great time to plant those trees and shrubs and it’s not to late to do a control burn also. There are so many things you can do to improve your property this time of year. Now is a great time to put establish those mineral lick sites. Now that the bucks are dropping their antlers and will be growing new ones soon it’s good to get them the minerals that will help them grow their antlers to their full potential and the minerals are good for the does that will be having those fawns before you know it. So mineral lick sites will help the overall health of your deer herd. I put out two new mineral lick sites last week and have got to do two more this week.
Getting deer hunting trail camera pictures of bucks like this one at your honey holes can sure fire you up big time.
It has been a great season for us and we have gotten tons of great deer hunting trail camera pictures.
Deer Hunting Trail Camera Photographs
I don’t know how many deer hunting trail camera pictures I have gotten but it is a lot. I have been going through them lately and trying to organize them and delete the ones that I didn’t want to keep. It has been a job getting all of them put into folders and keeping them organized. I have three different properties that I have permission to hunt, and at all three I’ve gotten deer hunting trail camera pictures of at least one monster whitetail.
This is the only photo we’ve gotten so far of whitetail monster buck we named Andre The Giant.
The biggest buck we got a photo of was a whitetail we named Horn Donkey. He didn’t start showing up until around late October in the middle of the night but as the rut approached he started showing up more and more and at first it was all in the dark but then he started showing up in early morning and late evening hours. Then just a few days before we were planning on trying to hunt him on film he started showing up all times of the day. By checking our photos we were able to put together a plan of attack on this big Kansas brute and we filmed him being shot in November.
Unfortunately we haven’t found him yet, but I plan on looking all winter and will not give up. I went around to the neighbors and farmers and they all said they would be on the lookout for him. This buck is very special because we believe he could have possibly been a potential Kansas state record typical with a bow on film. So we will not give up looking for him because we believe the shot was a fatal shot.
Trail camera pictures can help you pattern a big buck to help you figure out the best way to get a shot at him.
Some of the other bucks were really nice as well and hopefully they will make it through until next season and we will keep using our cameras to monitor our hunting properties and the bucks on them. So hopefully we will have more great photos to share with you.

Getting after late season bucks can be a real challenge.
Having food can really increase your odds at getting late season bucks.It can be a real challenge if you don’t have any food sources to focus on when getting after late season bucks.
Late Season Bucks Tips
Having food can really increase your odds at getting late season bucks deer hunting.
Is the rut over where you are? It seemed to peak around the second week of November here in Kansas. I know there will still be some does that were not bred that will come into estrous but for the most part it seems to be over. With the cold weather it seems the bucks are focusing on the food sources to regain the weight that they lost during the rut in order to be able to survive the harsh winters here in the mid-west. If you have some food sources available this time of year you really have an advantage in trying to score on late season bucks. It seems like the better the buck to doe ratio is the shorter more condensed the rut seems to be. If the buck to doe ratio is not that balanced the rut will be longer and more spread out. It was an intense rut here in Kansas in early to mid November and I got a lot of trail camera pictures of bucks fighting and pictures of bucks with busted up racks from fighting.
It has turned cold here in northeast Kansas and I have seen some really nice bucks that have been taken so far this year from all over the country. I had shoulder surgery last week so my deer hunting is over for this season. This was my third season of deer hunting in Kansas and I like it better every year. I was able to film myself taking a very nice 11 pointer with my bow in mid October and was able to film my good buddy and fellow DHBB pro-staffer Troy getting a shot at an unbelievable 12 pointer that was the biggest buck either of us have ever seen in the woods. Unfortunately we were not able to find the buck but we haven’t given up hope that we may still be able to find him.
I got a lot of trail camera pictures of bucks fighting in November.
If you haven’t gotten that big buck you have been after don’t give up. If you have some late season deer food sources focus on them and go get him. Good luck everyone I hope you get that big brute you’re after.
