Trail camera pictures of big bucks like this one can be exciting.
So far I have had a wonderful year of deer hunting and have gotten some great trail camera pictures. Even though I missed the biggest buck I have ever shot at with a bow at 35 yards. How’s every-one’s deer hunting going this year?
Trail Camera Pictures
I’ve gotten a lot of really nice photos lately. How about you have you gotten any good trail camera pictures.
Photo of Kansas Buck in full rut I missed with my bow deer hunting the Kansas rut. And it is all on film so I can enjoy it whenever I want.
I got trail camera pictures the day before of a definite Pope and young buck that I previously didn’t have on trail camera. So needles to say I was fired up the next morning when we set out to our stands.
The Big Buck That Got Away
It was early November and the bucks are in rut in Kansas. About 8:55am my cameraman Terry of ChaseVideo.org called a few times and at 9:00am the big buck came off a hill coming to us and right away I knew it was the buck we got on trail camera the day before. And he looked much bigger in real life than he did in the trail cam pictures. We guess he will score from the mid 150′s to the mid 160′s. By far the biggest buck I have ever taken a shot at. When I saw him coming through the thick stuff I tapped Terry on the ankle and pointed to where the buck was coming. I have to admit I got buck fever and when the buck went behind some thick stuff at 35 yards I drew back and settled my 40 yard pin on him and let it fly the buck dropped immediately when he heard the string and my arrow went sailing over his back. I had just missed the buck of a lifetime. I rushed and took the first shot that I had, and should have waited and probably gotten a much better shot. And we got it all on film. The feeling I had at that moment was horrible. You get up at 4:30am when you would rather be sleeping. You work so hard checking trail cameras and scouting and putting up stands and then when the moment of truth finally comes which they don’t very often, and I blew it. Like Travis Tritt says in his song “this one’s gonna hurt you for a long long time”. If you are a bow hunter you will miss, but the biggest buck of my life with a bow and I get buck fever and take an Ill advised shot when I know better. Oh well I’m not giving up just yet.
Georgia Whitetail Hunting Success
Stephens Walton county buck he took deer hunting behind his house.
On a different note it looks like deer season is going well for a lot of my friends back in my home state of Georgia. They have been getting some big bucks down. My good buddy Stephen took his biggest buck to date this nice eight pointer.
This is the Dooley county buck Preston took.
And my good buddy Mac took his son Preston deer hunting in Greene county in Georgia and Preston got his biggest buck ever hunting out of a box stand in a clear cut. I know Mac was proud of Preston making a good shot on his biggest buck.
These are two Georgia bucks Robert killed.
Also my good buddy and fellow DHBB pro-staffer Troy sent me a picture of his good friend Robert’s two bucks he took in Georgia as well. It looks like them Georgia boys are taking care of business. I sure miss getting after those Georgia bucks but getting after these Kansas big boys isn’t so bad either.
How is everyone’s season going? Have you been out deer hunting? I have heard of some nice deer being taken and I wanted to share a story about a nice Georgia buck my friend Troy recently took with is bow.
DHBB Pro-Staffer Troy harvested this Georgia buck with his bow in Georgia.
Fellow DHBB Pro-Staffer Troy sent me some pictures of a nice Georgia buck he harvested with his bow in Georgia. Troy said he found a old pear tree back in the woods that was loaded with pears and dropping them like crazy. Troy had over 100 trail camera pictures of this big eight pointer. He even had trail camera pictures of him fighting another Georgia buck. Well Saturday Troy was hunting near the old pear tree and had seen five does munching on pears when the nice eight made an appearance at 7:15am. Troy put the smack down on him and harvested his biggest buck to date with a bow. Way to go Troy. Great Georgia buck! I know you were pumped! There is no other rush like shooting a big buck with a bow! Were you shaking a little bit? Nothing matches that rush you get, it is unbelievable.
Have you gotten some good trail camera pictures?
Troy had over 100 trail camera pictures of the buck he harvested in Georgia.
If you have some good shots send them to me and I would be glad to post them on DHBB. If you get a nice buck feel free to send me some photos and a story and I’d be glad to put it on DHBB.
I am really pumped about this season and have been out on a few hunts already. The first morning I hunted behind my house I saw 6 does and a buck. I didn’t get a good look at the buck so I’m not sure how big he was. It should be a fun season. Good luck everyone, remember be safe and use those safety harnesses, and always identify your target. Also take a child or a friend hunting, you will make memories that will last a lifetime.
I got a good deer hunting whitetails report from my friend and fellow Pro-Staff member Troy from the opening day of bow season in Georgia. Troy said he harvested a doe on Saturday morning. Way to go Troy enjoy those grilled back straps by the campfire. I’m so glad it is time to go deer hunting.
Deer hunting big bucks like this one can be challenging mentally and physically.
I have gotten some really nice trail camera pictures from some of my friends. Looks like there are some really nice whitetails this year from all the trail camera pictures my friends have sent me. I have been moving for the last couple of weeks and the place we moved into has 120 acres that I have permission to bow-hunt on. I just put my stand out the other day and trimmed some shooting lanes and now I’m ready to go deer hunting whitetails.
Whitetails like this one should be shedding their velvet by now or very soon.
I am getting a little late start because of the move but hopefully I’ll see some whitetails. I went on google earth and studied the land and chose my stand location by studying the terrain features and think it will be a great spot. I put out two mineral licks and hope to get some good trail camera pictures.
Trail camera pictures like this one will get your butt out of bed at 4:30 am in hopes of getting a shot at a buck of a lifetime.
Baiting is legal in Kansas and I am going today to get some apples to put out. Being from Georgia I’m not used to being able to hunt over bait but I am going to try it this year. There are horses on the land I hunt on but once the season starts they will be moved to a separate pasture and I will be able to put out some corn and hopefully get the whitetails coming in on a regular basis. I have heard there is a really good acorn crop this year, but I haven’t seen very many on this new property. The place we moved from was loaded with acorns but this place doesn’t seem to have very many this year. I hope you all have a great season and get one of those big bucks you have always dreamed about. I can’t wait to just get out in the stand and watch the sun go down and see all the beauty and sounds of nature that God has blessed us with. Have a great season everyone.
