I make lots of trips to the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma, but I also make trips to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge (Oklahoma). I was at that refuge when they closed the campground because of COVID-19 in March 2020.
Here are a couple of Whitetail Bucks growing new antlers I photographed on one of my trips to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.
How I Got The Shot: Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Whitetail Bucks
These Bucks were near the Doris Campground and I photographed them from inside my pickup. I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
