Caught on Camera

Good luck counting all of those points.

John Duda of White Haven photographed this buck that appears to have four main beams and a multitude of points, making it a one-of-a-kind non-typical rack.

But the photo is a result of good timing on Duda’s part, as he was able to capture the buck while another one stood behind it, giving it the appearance of having a double rack.

Speaking of a double rack, it won’t be long until the velvet that has covered a buck’s antlers all summer begins to dry and fall off. After that, bucks will start rubbing their hardened antlers on trees to mark territory and establish dominance before the rut.

Capture anything interesting on your hand-held or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or any other wildlife? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine), and any other details to [email protected]
