Taken in my backyard - he is a regular visitor but I expect that will change soon

(Note-I only hunt with a camera - can not control what others use)

What a great pose he gave you! Have you considered removing a little of the noise in this shot? I think it would make a good shot even better.

I did do a poor job of pp. This buck allowed me to take about 15 shots and even turned for a sideway profile 'mug'shot. I was hoping for a group pix of him and his 6 point brother...

It's a nice image but seems a bit noisy. What were your settings in this shot?

I'm guessing underexposed and then pulled up in PP- what software are you editing your images with? Some noise reduction on the background could definitely help.

A handsome and alert looking buck. Just a suggetion but I would try and run some noise reduction on this image to improve it.

Thanks again - I have just been too busy this past week shooting college sports. BUT I will retake this deer picture on Monday or Tuesday. If not, I'll work on the noise and repost...

Maybe if I use a flash for these very late afternoon pictures I can get less noise and better detail.
