I’m catching these Whitetail Bucks out at sunrise. They don’t stay out long so I drive to where I think they will be when I first arrive at Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge. As you can see in my last few posts, I have been correct a few times.

How I Got The Shot – Two More Bucks In Velvet

I parked on the side of the auto tour road with my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup. This Buck was in the Sandtown area of the refuge past the Goss parking area. I parked on the paved section of the auto tour road.
