Deer Hunting Trail Camera Pictures

Deer Hunting Trail Camera buck named "Horn Donkey"!

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.

Whitetail  Andre The Giant

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.

Pre Season Chores

pre season chores trim lanes

Pre season is a good time to start trimming those shooting lanes to improve your deer hunting honey holes.

You reap what you sow, that’s how the saying goes right? Well I’m planning on getting some pre season chores done early this year so hopefully I’ll reap the benefits of some hard work when it comes time to go deer hunting. Hopefully this will be the season I finally get that Pope & Young whitetail.

Get Pre Season Chores Done

I have got to trim a lot of shooting lanes and hang several stands. I moved a ladder stand after this past season and I went to check it out the other day and man have I got some lane trimming to do. I want to get it done early this year.  I would rather do it now than to have to do it right before or during the season. I just think the more commotion there is in the woods close to the season the less likely those big bucks will know you are in the area. That big whitetail didn’t get big by being stupid. If they sense a lot of activity in the woods they will go nocturnal or leave their core area. I am planning on going to do some lane trimming tomorrow and put in some screw in steps in a tree where I plan on hanging some stands on one of my favorite deer hunting properties.

Get those trail cameras out now to watch your big whitetail develop throughout the antler growing process.

Have you started getting you’re whitetail honey holes ready for the upcoming season yet? I’ve got so much work to do to get ready but I enjoy getting out in the woods and putting up stands, trimming shooting lanes, putting out trail cameras and all other sorts of fun stuff. It  is a great way to get some exercise also.  I can’t wait to start getting some good trail camera pictures of some of those big bucks. I am wondering what bucks made it through the very harsh winter here in Kansas. There is one buck that I really hope made it through and is back. He’s the one I missed with my bow last year and this year he should be an absolute brute. I would love to match wits with him again this season. I was so close to getting him last year but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades!

Deer Hunting Ohio Trail Camera Pictures

This is a trail camera picture Doug got of the whitetail just before he killed him.

Trail Camera Pictures

My good friend Kelley sent me a few trail camera pictures quite a while back of a nice whitetail his friend Doug had gotten deer hunting in Ohio. I love reading first buck stories so I thought you might like this one.  I had to take some time off for a few days, I just had shoulder surgery last week  but I hope to be fully recovered when it comes time to go deer hunting.  Here is Doug’s story about his first buck. Doug had gotten several trail camera pictures  just before he killed him.

Deer Hunting in Ohio

This is Doug’s first buck he killed deer hunting in Ohio.

My First Deer

Here are the details on the 8 point buck I shot on November 7th, 2010.

On November 7th, 2010 the temperature was 20 degrees, and it was daylight saving time (the time moved back and hour) so I woke up early, around 4:30 am to get ready to go get them that morning.   The Deer were moving, because the rut was in full swing.   I took a shower, and got ready and headed to my stand.  I placed my stand at a pinch point where two trails came close together that deer use to travel to their bedding area.  I climbed into my stand about a half an hour before sunrise, and about 10 minutes later, two 4 wheelers came through a gate separating our property with the neighboring farm’s property.  I immediately thought this probable ruined my hunt for the morning, but decided to stay.  Eventually, 45 minutes past and I moved in my tree stand, when I did three doe took off running about 40 yards in front of me.  That morning there was frost on the ground, and I was surprised I did not here the three doe walk in near my stand.  About the same time I thought they had been there the whole time.  I was tired and thought of getting down to get some rest; I had been hunting hard for the past two days.  Suddenly, 5 minutes later I heard something crashing/running through the woods, and as I looked to my left approximately 15 yards from my stand, there was a buck.  The Buck was focused on the three doe that just ran off.  I immediately pulled my crossbow up, and was deciding if I should shoot him or not.  He was moving further away from my stand, 20, 25 yards; everything was going through my mind so fast.  Is this buck big enough?  Should I hold off, I just started my vacation I have the rest of the week to hunt.  Mean while, the buck move further away, 30, 35 yards and was ready to step behind a group of small saplings, when I aimed and put the pin just behind his front leg, and pulled the trigger.  As soon as I shoot the buck jumped and kicked his back legs hard, I knew he was hit well.  I listened as he ran about 20 to 25 yards down over a hill, I then heard a crash, and figured he went down.   My younger brother who was hunting about 300 yards away heard the crash and was sure I stuck one.  I got out of my stand and started look for a blood trail, but did not see any blood the first 10 yards.  I thought maybe I missed him, but kept walking a few yards later I found blood sprayed all over a group of small trees/saplings.   I then looked down the hill, and there he was lying with his head propped up on a log.  The arrow hit both lungs and he only ran approx 25 yards, before expired quickly, he didn’t know what hit him.  This buck was a decent first kill; hopefully next year I can shoot his daddy.

Trail camera pictures can help you pattern a big whitetail buck to improve your odds of killing him.

Shot with a Crossbow:  Ten Point – Fusion, distance 34 yards.

Congratulations Doug on a great first buck. Great story and trail camera pictures of him to. Thanks for letting me share it on here. Also thanks to my good friend Kelley for sending me the story and trail camera pictures. I wanted to tell everyone Kelley is in an awesome band called Fishing with Dynamite if you get a chance go check out their great music.
