The 50 Best Photos From Round III of the 2011 Field & Stream Fall Trail Cam Contest

Just Droppin By

Awesome double drop tyne whitetail that I managed to harvest two days later!!

Battling Bulls

Placed my camera overlooking a stump with a salt lick. Had these two respectable bulls fighting. After this ten minute battle the stump had been completely shredded.

Elk On The Run

I shot this nice bull with my Matthews bow at 26 yards. I had several trail cams in the area. The closest trail cam was 200 yards away on an escape route. This bull ran past my cam with the arrow still in him.
Our department of fish and wildlife is very interested in this wolverine that showed up on our trail cam.

Marking Out Coyoteville

Coyote marking his part of the mountain.

Bull with Odd Rack

I captured this bull with an odd rack on my trail cam.

Horizon Buck

The timing was perfect and I was lucky enough to capture the outline of a buck on the horizon as well as a nice one up close.

Ring Side Seat

Great South Dakota fight and the young guy is learning his lessons. Harvested the big guy on left in late October.

Grow Em Big in Indiana

Have gotten 20+ pics of this bucks since August. The food plots appear to be paying divends as we have gone from many good bucks, to some great bucks to this one exceptional buck.

Nocturnal Giant

I have scouted this area of Virginia for several months now. I thought I knew every buck that was on the property, until this giant showed up one night. I have never seen him with my own eyes, but my trail camera has picked him up several times. If it wasn’t for my camera I would never know this guy existed. Its nice knowing that there is big bucks out there. Makes hunting just that more fun!

Gene Simmons Bull Elk

Set the camera up on a spring and had over 1000 pictures in 3 days. Caught this bull giving us his best KISS tongue!
Ten point came in to have an apple on the edge of a soybean field have 40 other pictures of him.

Sow and three Cubs

Sow brought her 3 cubs to my bait pile during the baiting season for bear

Creepy shot of a guy in front of my trail camera....

Crap, there goes all of my corn!

Should have been there Friday!!!

Big boy visits his scrape during the day

I have been seeing this buck for 3 years and this is the first time I got him on the camera....maybe this is the year!!

The mind reader buck

I have about 50 pictures of this buck. He can read my mind cause when I'm there he is not. If I go to another stand you can bet who's gonna show up.

Red Tailed Hawk

This is a pic of a red tailed hawk. I forgot to submit it last year so here it is. This is the only trail camera I have,but im only 13 years old.

Bucks in snow

Pic is after snow storm. I set up a shed trap in hopes of bucks losing antlers and this drop tine buck showed up.

Spike Brothers.

Always saw these two guys together. The one on the left was almost made it through hunting season this year but was shot about a week ago. Northwest Oregon.

Custom mineral lick mixture in the bean field.

If you put all the antlers together, you would have a nice size buck! Looks like they will be stealing my dad's soybeans a few more years until they all fill out.

Bobkitty

Kinda odd to see him in daylight...does not happen often.

We call him Tricycle.

Here is a day time picture of Tricycle, the three legged coyote living in our neck of the woods. I see him on occasion in the evenings and have him in several trail cam pictures as well. He is a survivor and a testament to how resilient these creatures are.

Merry Halloween

This photo was taken October 31, 2011 by trailcam during a Noreastern that recieved 19" of snow accumulation in Northwest Connecticut. This photo was taken by our home in our woods. Enjoy and we did.

Deer was caught eating acorns under a White Oak tree in Tennessee.
This picture was taken earlier in the year. Two bucks are sparing along with a 13 point eating.

big buck preseason.
I submitted a picture of a buck I had got picture of on August 8, 2009 in Round 2 of this contest (MONSTER TYPICAL 8, #35). Here is the 13 point brute that had showed up on Aug 8, 2008. Saw him during the season but never presented a shot. Also found the left side shed.

Look at me!

We call him Beansnapper. I love his width. Its as if he couldnt be showing off his rack to the camera any better.

Nice Buck

Theres been a bunch of nice bucks this year behind our house. Heres one of them.

Oregon Coyote on Blacktail remains

This coyote has been working on cleaning up the remains of a blacktail deer.

Bachelor party!

One bag of corn on a small piece of property brought an unexpected and welcomed surprise.

We've Got you Surrounded

It's almost as if the turkeys were threatening the raccoon to give up the corn.

oklahoma buck

I have watched him the last two years and have a shed from three years ago. I harvested him this year during gun season here in Oklahoma. I have several trail cam pics of him from last year and this year.
