Caught on Camera

Although deer season is over, now is the time to wonder about the bucks that made it through to grow larger by next season.

The buck in this trail camera photo from Paul Pietruszewski is certainly one that, if it survived, will be quite large with another year to grow. The 8-point buck was photographed on Nov. 23 at the peak of the rut. It’s no surprise that Pietruszewski reported that it was chasing a young doe around his backyard that morning.

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]
