This big nocturnal, Kansas whitetail buck , antlers still in velvet, was hard to capture on one of my friend Scott Morgan’s many trail cams. Scott has several cameras scattered over a wide area near his home in eastern Kansas. He’s hoping to get a shot of a cougar that has been sighted in the vicinity. So far no luck on the cougar but lots of deer and turkey.
It was nice of this 6-point whitetail buck to pose for my friend Dave’s trail cam in his back yard. Actually there might be another tine hiding back there. Anyway now it’s a 3 or 4-pointer. It’s a little early in our part of the country for bucks to start shedding antlers but maybe this guy just wanted to get a head start and beat the rush.
Thanks to Scott Morgan of Baldwin City, KS for another trail cam photo. It’s hard to see how these three extremely shootable bucks made it through the 2012 Kansas deer season. No wonder people come from all over the country to hunt Kansas whitetails!
Two nice bucks tripped Scott Morgan’s trail cam near Baldwin City, KS recently. Wouldn’t you like to see these two guys on opening morning! Click on the photos to enlarge them.
If you’re hoping to buy a trail cam soon (as I am) Scott says you can’t go wrong with Reconyx . They’re expensive but worth it.
