Default Puncherís Ď20-Ď21 Deer Photography Thread

This year should be a great year for antlers, so I thought Iíd start a thread showing some of the deer I find with my Tamron 150-600. If you follow along on Instagram then youíll probably recognize a lot of what I post. Iíll be sharing deer I cross paths with on our properties in Mason, Callahan, and Stonewall Counties and any others I come across.
Iím still not where I was to be yet as a photographer, so feel free to critique and give any tips and tricks!!

This first deer is a mature (5+ y.o) big framed 6 I crossed paths with at the Mason County ranch on Tuesday. I love big 6ís.

This second deer is a mature high horn 8 that had just rubbed out of velvet here in Callahan County. Iím hoping this deer sticks around for my oldest daughter, but you never know what will happen on small acreage.

My Instagram is kkcoutdoors, and I’m shooting a 70D. I really want to upgrade to a full frame, but man I’d hate to have to buy new lenses too.

Shooting at 6400 ISO is not conducive to good photography, but when a Mason County 11 point is in front of you well before sunrise, you take what you can get!

Nice! great pictures

This may sound stupid but is this on your land or do you pay a landowner to take pictures - cause I would like to find a place I can take or see big bucks like that.

All of the bucks posted are photographed on family land. I just received a pretty awesome invite to photograph a 40,000 ac property and a 5,000 ac high fence property. Iím chomping at the bit and hope I can make it out there.

If I had a place like yours I would be too!! My recommendation is this, try taking photos just off the auto settings and see how they work. Low lighting will be very difficult though so be mindful of that. If you want to try some manual settings let me know and I can get you in the ballpark.
