There were three large velvet Whitetail Bucks in an area of the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. Because they were in some thick timber, this large 6 point buck was the only clear photo I could get.

How I Got The Photo – Large 6 Point Buck In Velvet

I first saw the Whitetail Bucks crossing the auto tour road in front of me. They went into an area that I had photographed a Barred Owl this past spring. I parked in the road and began photographing. I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
