Default A few pics from South Texas this past week....

Went down to South Texas to do a little hunting. Also took my camera along and was glad I did. Had misty, rainy, snowy and clear weather all during the week. Here a few pics.

How the hell were you not dispensing lead or arrows?? Great photos by the way though.

What gear were you using?

Looks like you might be in need of my culling services. They are free and I will rid your ranch of some of those undesirable bucks!

Wow! Nice pics. The one with the doe in front of him is about the most awesome buck I have ever seen. Might not be the biggest but a buck like that is what I dream of. The character and just his look.

Sorry I missed your question earlier. I use a Canon 7D, Canon 100-400 4.0-5.6 IS zoom or Canon 500mm 4.0 IS and Manfrotto tripod with a Manfrotto 393 Gimbal style head. I was throwing lead this trip due to bad winds and sloppy roads, just not at any of these bucks I have pics of here.

He was my favorite buck I saw on this trip with the very young 6x6 next in line. He more of a future prospect at this point but off to a great start. Here are some more pics of the clean 6x6.

Fantastic pics! Those bucks are insane. I'd love to take my 7DII and my 150-600mm Sigma Sport for a test drive out there. Haven't gotten a chance to break out that combo on some good deer photos yet.

Seems like it's gonna be a good one. I haven't gotten to take it out much yet (go to work in the dark, come home in the dark), but I think it will work out well. The build quality is awesome that's for sure, it's just a heavy son of a gun haha.

The sunset photo of the 12? a few photos up is spectacular!!!! What great photos and a great ranch. Thanks for sharing. By the way, I need some lessons. I have a Seven also and some good glass, I just don't know how to set my camera for light and speed ect. I am working at it though. Thanks again.

What does it weigh? My Canon 4.0 500 mm IS lens weighs little over 7 lbs. I have to use tripod when I use it or at least a mono-pod.

Thanks. That buck that is way out in the full sun? If that is the one that was after sunrise and he is a 7x7 typical and bumping 8x7. I am still learning my camera and lenses also. I am self taught and need a lot practice. I use a tripod all the time with my 7D and 500mm since it is so heavy. I try to use Manual exposure mode when possible and go for the lowest ISO(100 if possible). Then make camera adjustments to get the picture quality I want. That picture was taken at 100 ISO, F4 and 1/320 exposure. Like I said I am still learning as I go. If lighting is bad and deer are moving around a lot very early/late in dark shadow spots then I use the Programmed Auto exposure setting some. Lot of times I just taking pics of deer when I see him the first time so I have them for future reference history on a buck.
