The Challenge



The highlight of Tuesday’s visit to SNP was the photo session with this wide ten point Whitetail. In this photograph the 10pt is posturing in a successful attempt to intimidate the smaller buck.

This buck afforded me the opportunity to photograph him for over an hour. The entire time he was staying close to a doe; frequently standing motionless watching the area intently as she nibbled at the surrounding vegetation.

Stay tuned as I will be posting more photos of this buck in the days to come.

Salty I am looking forward to more from SNP. The smaller buck to the left looks like the one in the previous photo, is it?

The buck on the left is outnumbered by the rack points of the other buck! Great shot!

Nice shot. It goes without saying this invitation into the lives of animals is a loving experience to be sure. What a nice shot this is.

Brad,
No the small buck is not the one pictured in my 11-16 post, that buck was in Pa. I do agree though that the rack size is similar.

Salty: How wonderful that you are able to get two bucks in the same frame.
