Check out this photo of my brother. He actually hesitated on shooting this guy(waiting for a bigger one?) and we have a series of photos of him changing his mind and trying to draw back when the deer was at 5 yards. No chance. Great photo though!

Great photo. I think I'd move my stand to the front of the tree though.

Front of the tree??? I guess if you know for sure which direction a deer is going to approach from, you could position the stand for that.

I assume the camera placement indicates the place the hunter figured the deer would be in his shooting lane. If he's not in a shooting lane the need for a backdrop is not as essential as the deer would have an obstructed view. It obviously worked for him, just a small observation.

The antlers make a nice frame

"The antlers make a nice frame"

Though they sure don't leave much doubt as to where the buck is looking....

That is a GREAT tree. I think if I could, I'd set up a stand on the inside of one of those trunks - preferably a platform that would allow me to stand up (making me look like 1 more trunk) and move to shooting windows on all sides.

But no matter... that's is a GREAT pic. Would make an excellent magazine cover, if the image quality were there....

Great pic of the deer looking at the Hunter. Also, great pic of skylining yourself, good teaching aid to new hunters.

Right when the hunter changed his mind

Can't find the next one but it shows the deer immediately drop and bolt right before he was ready to shoot

Nice photo, if he were anywhere else in the tree there would be no cool photo to post. Just the fact that the deer was 5 yards from him tells me that he was doing something right with his setup. I have to get one of those spots where the deer are in the open in the daytime. Just doesn't happen with deer, especially mature bucks, where I am.

Private ranch in South Dakota. River bottom setup.

It appears the deer was onto him the whole time he just went in for a closer look. Thus the reason he could get drawn. I bet had he tried drawing at the time of the initial pic he would have been busted too.

Very cool pic!

Looks like the deer’s ears are relaxed, indicating to me that he wasn’t on alert. Timing is everything. If the camera had tripped 2 seconds earlier, the deer very easily could have been looking at the camera itself.

It doesn't matter what direction you have the stand facing, they will come from behind and over your right shoulder. I shot this photo of my good friend and often my videographer, Mike Lapinski. I was using a 300 lens and this was before digital. For at least five-minutes, this buck and three smaller ones before it, "played" around behind him. Then...he missed. :) BTW- I do not own, never have and never will, a trail cam. Any photo I post, you can assume I shot it with a hand-held. Just thought I would mention.

Doesn't necessarily appear to be in the trophy photo, but I would've thought for sure that deer was blind. ;^)

Nice buck Forest. Sometimes those cameras can be a jinx.

Bowriter......I could give a rat’s a$$ whether or not you have ever owned or used a trail camera. Just thought I would mention.

That's a super cool pic - as well as the other pics - really awesome to catch those moments.

Also funny that there are two "Will"s on here :)... I'm not the OP.
