Hello All,

With the whitetail deer rut in full swing, the last few weeks have provided a great opportunity to capture images of bucks displaying various behaviours. I have been fortunate to find and photograph nine separate bucks over the last six outings, including one big 10-point that I was able to also photograph last fall.

As of this week they are chasing down does, getting into scraps with other bucks and traversing territories. They certainly throw caution to the wind, and I am able to get very close to them in most situations. Mr. 10 allows me to get within 20 feet of him without a care in the world.

This is a tract of public land that is off-limits to hunting, found close to the city centre of Ottawa, Ontario.

Here are a few images I have captured – as well as two short videos I have filmed while out in the field.









Yours in the Outdoors,

Hello All,

My time in the field over the past month or so has been an enjoyable one. Photographing deer is a passion of mine, and as the leaves change colour each season, capturing the big bucks of fall and their fully formed antlers is always a definite highlight.

I have been fortunate to have crossed paths with some impressive – and very photogenic – deer so far. From spike four-pointers to a monster eleven-point “king-of-the-woods”, each animal never fails to elicit a sense of wonderment and unmatched excitement.

The following images showcase a sample to this point. With the rut at peak, capturing some buck and doe displays or combatant buck interactions is next on the agenda.

Yours In the Outdoors,
