Re: Mule deer far and near...

Len,
Last year's whitetail buck was 423 if I remember right, so you may be right this year's doe is likely my best at a lasered range anyway. I may have made further shots before, but without a laser rangefinder it tain't nuttin but guessing or lying, depending on who is telling the story. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Mule deer far and near...

Beautiful buck and an awesome photo as well. It is nice to see others take the time to take some quality photos of a quality critter.

Notice how the horns are skylined, there is very little blood, his tounge is not hanging down, the hunter and deer are filling the bulk of the picture, the light is right, there are no shadows in annoynig places and his body and head are all positioned nicely and to the point that you can see every point on that beautiful speciman!

The only thing a guy could have done better was to pull out what little grass there is infront of the deer's face as well as the use of the flash for complete light fill under the ball cap. I know I know, that is all very nit picky...

Great job, keep taking nice photos.
