Default A couple of nice bucks in the Uintas

Figured I should share these photos since I enjoy seeing what others are seeing and posting.

I decided to help a buddy set up a couple of trail cams in a spot we hunted last year so after a long 4 mile 2500' hike last night we cooked up some Mountain House (the veggie lasagna is 5 star!), pitched the tent and caught some shut eye. It's still chilly up high on the peaks with snow patches here and there still.

Sunrise this morning was tough on the eyes:




We saw some good elk and deer tracks/sign but the Uintas are big country with animal density no nearly like other areas so we weren't expecting to see tons of sign. After setting one camera up we peaked over a ridge to set up another and caught a glimpse of a small (4 deer) bachelor herd. 2 nice 4 points in there that with a little more growth would be great to find in the archery season:



And some close ups - we were about 600 yards away. My point and shoot (Panasonic FZ2 has 18x optical zoom and a Leica lens so I'm impressed how well the photos turned out.

Nice report and pictures thanks for sharing.
The trees above the game trail would be a great ambush spot.
I need to get out of the office away from this computer.

WOW! At 600yd. The FZ28 is supposed to be a great camera-you've proved it.
Thanks for sharing.

No doubt eh? I was very impressed at how well that camera has performed. I bought it for work and to take pictures of backcountry skiing but little did I know it'd work so well for hunting. It's pretty light too.
