A trail cam is trained at a good-looking waterhole. Then a summer storm drops an acorn-laden oak, and the local deer get up close and personal.
Jim Williams, 49, of Ofallon, MO, has got a target buck this hunting season, following a rather unusual turn of events this August. As Williams tells it, the avid hunter had placed a trail camera on a promising waterhole hoping to catch a glimpse of bucks on his hunting land, when a large oak sudddenly fell in front of the camera.“The local bucks came in close to eat the acorns and oak leaves, and gave me some fantastic pics,” Williams wrote. “The big boy you see here is 4- or 5-year-old deer we call ‘Holyfield’ because he has a chewed-up ear; we suspect it might have occurred during a run-in with a bobcat or coyote.”After receiving Williams’ cool oak-tree photos Team HuntStand opined that we’d love to see a few grip-and-grin photos of Holyfield during hunting season, as an entry into the HuntStand 2018 Big Buck ALERT contest that runs through November 29, and rewards those who score this fall with help from the HuntStand app.“Well, that’s the plan!” Williams responded. “Honestly, I will be thrilled just to see this buck this fall while hunting.”
