It’s difficult photographing Whitetail Bucks in November because of hunting pressure here in Arkansas. I came across this one while walking a game trail at Chaffee Crossing in Fort Smith, Arkansas. This nice 8-point Buck was walking toward me on the same trail. I’m sure the rut was on and that’s why I got lucky to even see this Buck in daylight.

As soon as I saw this Deer, I got behind a tree and began photographing. I thought he would walk right to me but he finally heard my camera. I was hand-holding my camera and lens.
