I went hunting today in the nasty weather that we had here in Central Illlinois. I did not see one deer from stand. I left out and then drove around the corner to see a shooter buck and a doe bedded together with a small buck bedded about 70 yards away. I tried to sneak up on the buck but was busted by the doe. So I whipped out the camera and went to town while I walked towards them. This is the first video that I got of the big fella and then the pictures are from today around 10 am.
What do you all think? This is my first time catching some action like this let alone seeing it happen!
Very cool man!
I had a very nice buck breeding a doe this afternoon. First time I had witnessed it too.

Yep, the rut is on in central IL!! Good time for a vacation. Today was first day of vacation, one buck down. Tomorrow should be an even better day. Colder and less windy. Can't wait.
Awesome pics! I'm heading out tomorrow in NE IL. Supposed to be cold and less windy.
Awesome man, that is a sweet compilation of photos.

Sorry but the pics show brite sunny bluebird skies in the background behind the trees. I can't see deer stopping to breed after you are busted and switch to a camera. knowing the weather front that moved through today those pics are not from today.
SORRY BUSTED TWICE IN ONE DAY. Nice pics though

dont know where you are in central Illinois but id say the pictures very well could be today.
Im in central Illinois and it was cloudy and misty parts of the day. Later the sun was out and it was dark off to the east....guess when the front moved through. Not to mention it looks like the grass is blowing prety good in the pictures just like it should be with todays wind.
