Trail-cam picture seconds before buck shot

November 18, 2009 at 10:25 PM

This is the first time I’ve ever seen this sequence of pictures.

Dan Baldock is an account manager for Lone Wolf Treestands who killed a nice 10-point Peoria County buck on Nov. 14. Baldock and his buck are pictured above.

But with a trail-cam he also got a picture of himself in his Lone Wolf Assault stand just seconds before he shot the buck. “If you look in the upper right corner you can see me standing in the tree with my bow still on the hanger,” Baldock noted.

Sure enough, blow up the picture (second picture below) and there he is.

Baldock went on to explain that, “I’m left handed so all I had to do was pick up my bow, draw and shoot (maybe 10 seconds total). He was 20 yards when I shot. He is a 10-pointer but he is missing his one brow tine.”

Pretty cool memento of a nice buck.
