Elk County Buck



No Photoshop trickery here folks. While Willard and I were passing some mid-day time during my recent trip to Elk County Pa. we drove past a camp with this young buck feeding near the cabin. He began walking through the trees and framed himself for this shot.

It may be an omen of things to come for this fellow for his position and framing reminds me of a shoulder mount whitetail in the full sneak position hanging on the wall.

Did they ever modify the hunt rules as a means for repressing the deer population. I read a few years back that they were opening or encouraging a doe hunt for that reason.

Just curious.

By the way, I am a native Marylander: so the Potomac is near and dear to my heart, but not like the Mighty Sus.

Whoa that's some pose. I hope it won't be the harbinger of things to come.
Terrific shot Salty.

Absolutely stunning animal photography.

Such beauty.

So many people can't seem to stop killing such things because they are there.

The deer population mirrors the human population.

We can't seem to control the human population unless we kill people like we kill deer.

It doesn't make sense to me.

Great timing and a very nice capture, lets hope he ends up in no ones home next month. At this stage of my life I find it hard to believe I hunted for 20 years.

Salty: Cool capture, now this is a legal buck that should be allowed to let its rack grow before harvest.
