Ridge runner I do not know where they were taken only that they were sent to me via email a year or so ago. I am not sure but I think the guy who sent me the pics got them from a photo website where he was able to get pics of animals and such for a fee I think he said it was a membership thing?. But I am not sure he sends me a lot pics of all kinds of animals. If they are from a calendar then I did not know I would be happy to take them down for you Ridge Runner.
Ridge Runner I never tried to pass off that I took the photos they were sent to me quite a while ago and if they were in some magazine or publication then it is possible that the pics were sold to multiple publications. For example you sometomes will see the same story or picture in several magazines over a short period thanks for the heads up though if that what they were.
I will be more cautious in the future about posting pics that I receive.
Guys, these pictures came from my camera and the deer were in our yards. I'm trying to get a good picture of a really weird non typical with a "cow horn" that grew out of his right side below the antler. More to follow. No tricks and no surfing the net just to put some thing out there. Centennial.
Okay, here is the best I could do. I had to crop and enlarge the shot. My Dad took the picture off of his back porch about three weeks ago. The giant thing on his right side is actually part of the antler. It is not his ear. Like I said, I will try to get a better picture posted if I can get one. Centennial.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
