Mature Texas Whitetail at Sunset

His girlfriend is peeking in the top left corner. I was simply blown away during this encounter. I didn't expect to have him ghost out so close to my scene. I've spent literally 3 straight weeks trying to get this close. Tonight I finally got caught him red handed LOL! Whitetail simply drive me crazy..it's a game of chess trying to narrow the distance....even with a telephoto....it's a challenge! FINALLY OLD BOY!!!!

The Whitetail Courtship

On The Roost - Wild Turkey Hen turning in for the night

It's amazing these big birds can balance so well during their night time roost.

Wondering where she went?

I caught this old boy out trailing an unseen doe. As he mosied along, he worked a scent trail following a doe that previously fed through this area. Note his left eye, he recently fought another buck earning a battle scar in the process. He's very fortunate he didn't lose that left eye. Sure would like to find the other buck that managed to toe it up with him.....maybe next time.

Magical Hour

Cool fall weather coupled with an whitetail breeding season makes for a very entertaining sunset.

God Bless!
