Virginia White Sock Buck

If you’re like me, trail camera photos never get old. Since the introduction of game cameras the quality and technology has increased greatly over the years. Hunters now possess the capability to capture high-definition photographs, video and some trail cameras can send the photos directly to our smart phones within minutes of taking pictures. It’s become a must have tool for hunters. The camera allows us to better manage the herd, strategize our season and gives us a candid insight on the wildlife that occupies the land.

Every time I check my trail camera I find myself anxiously rushing back to the house to see what’s been roaming around my hunting spots. As soon as I insert the memory card in my computer my heart begins beating a little bit faster. I eagerly scroll through the thumbnails looking for a set of horns. Even if I just see one doe it’s enough to keep my hopes up for the upcoming season. I’ve seen raccoons, fox, and squirrels but nothing compares to seeing that big buck walking through my shooting lane. Fortunately for me, in one my prime hunting spots I’ve been seeing consistent deer movement throughout all seasons. Over the weekend I checked my cameras and saw a 9-pointer that’s been hanging around pretty regularly this summer. I think it’s safe to say that it’s the same buck that I posted about last month. This time the photos were taken during the morning and I was able to notice something very unique about this buck, he was wearing white socks. I’ve seen deer with piebald qualities but never quite like this……

This shaggy 4-pointer was accompanying the bigger buck and should make for a nice shooter next season…

Nice to See You Again

After checking a few trail cams today, I was pleased to see a nice 8-point Virginia whitetail buck. As of today, it’s right around 3 months before bow season begins and I’ve seen a moderate amount of velvet cropping up in the mountains. I think the hot and humid weather may be keeping these big bucks bedded down all day and it forces them to travel in the late evenings and into the night. I try not to put too much complementation on their patterns right now; we all know that when October comes around its a whole different ballgame.

I really hope this guy makes an appearance on the 2012 #Deertour. If you want to check out more of my trail cam pictures and keep track of the deer in my area this season check out my online album here.

The Lucky One

Montgomery County, Virginia is tucked away in the heart of the New River Valley and I was fortunate to do a lot of whitetail hunting there last season. The deer were runnin’ wild in late October during bow season and they stayed active until the big guns had to be put away. I saw a wide variety of quality bucks and just as many does bringing up the rear.

I set up a trail cam in mid January and started seeing a lot activity in the first few days. Within a week the camera had captured a double drop tine buck. I never saw this monster the whole season. The photos speak for themselves. I hope to see this guy around next year!
