    Taken at a close by state park.
    No threat of hunters, so they don't worry about people to much.
    That makes it easier, and much more fun.

    Wow awsome shots, my husband is a hunter and I can't wait to go and take pictures like this, would you mind sharing the equipment you used, I am fairly new to photography and just bought a Canon 50D. I am not sure what lenses I need and other equipment to do wildlife shots. Thank you ;)

    Thanks.

    The 50D will work just fine for shots like these.
    My camera is a 5DMKII, and for these shots (other than #3) I used a Canon 100-400 lens.
    For the 3rd shot, I used a Canon 400L f5.6 lens.

    EXCELLENT work. Some of the nicest deer photos I have seen in the last year or so. I like the second shot, of the buck checking his back trail. The drinking shot is also very nice. You're really doing a good job at getting close and getting well-focused, crisp shots.

    Very nice, I love most all critters, but I really like peek-a-boo shots like 1 and 2. A shame that 1 dumb grass blade caught the eye a bit in 1. I assume you were at the 400 end of your zoom, how far were you from #4. Really nice sharp output. He surely did have a bead on you though didn't he.

    I like the second one the best. All are good, but that one has more of that indefinable "pop"

    After hunting them with both a gun and a camera I like #1 & #2. IMO, while #3-#5 are "better pictures" they could of been taken at 50-1000 yards while the others look like they were taken up close and personal.

    Thanks again.

    I'm able to get very close to these guys.
    I've shot some as close as maybe 50 feet away.
    Not that that's a smart idea with the bucks in rut, but I try to be careful.
    I did have one buck drop his head, snort, and start pawing at the dirt.
    I figured it was time to move on at that point. Well I did take one shot before leaving.;)

    The "It's time for you to leave" shot.

    A couple of more shots.

    Just to show that they don't all come out the way you want.

    Absolutely beautiful pictures. The 1st image is my favourite, I love the blur. My fiance's a hunter, and I would absolutely love to show him these pictures.. But, I'm a little afraid he might shoot my computer :er:
