Big Buck on the Trail Cam!

My old time hunting buds, my dad and brother, have been busy setting up tree stands and trail cams in NY. They have been putting in plenty of hard work over the past few weeks. Now, one of the things all three of us are guilty of is playing pranks on one another. It goes without saying that my dad is the ringleader and yes, we learned from the best.

A week or so ago, they set up a camera overlooking an open field. BJ went back and downloaded the images. When they started viewing them on the computer it was mostly empty field...after empty field... and then suddenly ANTLERS!

BJ started counting the points when he noticed something was off. On closer inspection he found that my dad had completely set him up. Normally this stuff would happen to me! You can imagine the pleasure I got out of knowing my dad was pulling this on my brother instead. Enjoy the photos!

Hearing the story of how this happened cracks me up every time I hear it. The short version is my dad, knowing my brother was going to be pulling the cards from a few trail cams, decided to head out and verify that the cams were working OK. Off the wall came his 10-point mount and he proceeded to 'walk' the deer in front of the camera. I am sure my dad was giggling like a little kid when he was doing this. Heck, I know I would be! 

Oh, and I can't forgot to share this gem!

Hope you all are getting good images on your trail cameras!


  1. Awesome!! You should try a bigfoot next time!

  2. Thanks guys. Those two are going to be pranking each other all season I am sure. Bigfoot is a great idea!

  3. I am tearing up, and cracking up. Your dad is the greatest.

  4. Wow, you got a fish pic in the woods. Next time you may got a dinosaur pic.
