Shh.... don't tell the deer hunters here UP North that there are deer on the Pasty Cam today, they might come looking for them. :-> David Cloutier, did his shooting with a camera in the first photo. That deer doesn't seem to be focused on David taking the picture, but on something to the right of where he's standing. Perhaps there were other people there that the deer was watching to be sure what was taking place.

That second photo is something else and only someone with the talents of Steve Brimm would be able to capture two deer in the midst of a tender moment like this. Some folks might say he was in the right place, at the right time, which might be part of it, but you also need to have the patience to sit and wait for something like this to take place, then have the skills to capture it with the right settings and speeds. Steve knows his stuff, that's for sure.

Fantastic photos! I used to hunt years ago, but I never really wanted to shot a deer. Not that I have anything against hunting, but I just don't care for venison. Fortunately, I never did shoot a deer, but I always thought about photographing them instead, just like the photos above...very inspiring

OMG....I LOVE that second photo....No wonder Steve Brimm is a pro!!!

That first one is a dandy too!!! I bet David's heart was beating a lil' faster, when he SHOT that one!

Great pictures! Those are the kinds of shots that I could take at those gorgeous creatures.

Beautiful pictures of the white tails. I would imagine that the deer hunting season is in full swing these days. Is the deer season still a big attractions to out of town hunters.
I can remember when I was growing up that the influx of hunters was huge.
The pictures each day remind me so much of my youth and love to see what is in store each day.
Keep up the good work.

the first photo looks like a doe elk. notice no tail and a whiter nose.

Hey all, Josh Stein here. Nice pics. The first pic is a mule deer, not a whitetail. Have a great weekend!

Wow, so Steve Brimm is getting into the semi-regular routine recently for the photos! I am looking forward to many more like this.

Was the first shot taken in Michigan? I didn't think there was Mule Deer in Michigan.

By Liz B (Lizidaho) on Saturday, November 22, 2008 - 12:43 pm:

If Dave is from Colorado then I suspect that Mulie was "shot" in his state.

deer hunting. I would prefer to shoot with my camera as well. Its kind of strange, though, as I was growing up, that was my dad's favorite time of year, deer season. He ad my uncles, couple of my cousins, used to go out. It was the only time my dad took vacation.

Its good memories of him cleaning the rifle. Going out and sighting in. Getting the clothes out, at that time red and black checked coats and became all red eventually. Way before that neon orange stuff :)

He did get lost one time though, out behind Toivola somewhere...maybe Misery Bay area...he didn't walk out until like 3am or something. Scary time. We were in the car...all my uncles and friends were out looking for him...shooting in the air...hollering.

Davesou...I can remember a hunter getting lost in the woods just around dusk in the Gaylord area. We heard him whistling and we whistled back. He didn't sound very far away, however it took him over an hour to finally reach us at the road and it was pitch black. He was very glad we waited.

Ah yes, beWILDERED. Interesting how in long ago days that word
meant lost. Doubtless in the wilderness with the wild things.
Thanks for that quote Newaygo. Words are fascinating. My own
not so much--I'm in the throes of writing report card comments.
