  1. It was a darned long and very cold one this year. And it's seeming like a late spring to boot. But you know that it'll warm up eventually. It always does. We're starting to think about our deer plots. Last year's plots were a total disaster on account of the severe drought we had. So we're eating pork, chicken and beef this year cause I didn't get a deer last fall. Anyway, I have checked in occasionally but haven't posted in months. But like the frogs that come out after the cold is over and start peeping again, I'm back and glad to see most of you still around. So hi to all. It is only 212 days till the rifle opener here.

  3. A time of year when the food is plentiful and the antlers are sprouting. This guy had some damage on the right side of his head judging from the bulge above his eye and the antler/pedicle placement. Elk like the taste of clover too.

  4. Another vote for using fill flash, which I also highly recommend in daylight hours. BTW, fill flash also produces some nice shots with shutter priority mode. Here's a couple tips for trophy photos. 1. Position the animal so the sun is at the photographers back. 2. Remove all intervening vegetation between camera and subject. 3. The photograph should never be taken with the camera above eye level of the subject. Keep the camera low and angle the shot up wards. If you can get sky behing the horns, do it. 4. Frame the shot correctly. This kills me to even mention but I've seen so many shots where the hunter and animal look like specs in the middle of scenic landscape photo I gotta. Especially on digital cameras when it's possible to instantly review the shot there is no excuse for this. Combine those tips and you'll be ready when you get something like this
