Nick and Brian Kruger are two diehard whitetail deer hunters from Wisconsin. The brothers hunt private and public land in central Wisconsin (Wood County), and they’ve had some good success over the years. Recent years, however, have shown a decrease in the number of deer they see during early season bowhunting and the November gun-hunting seasons.
These photos might indicate why there has been a decline in deer sightings.
“I changed the card in my trail camera that is sitting in front of a den today. We got there and made a bunch of noise, then I go down in front of the hole to change batteries and the card in the camera. A couple of minutes later I hear a little noise, turn around, and this is what I saw. Needless to say my heart rate went through the roof. I was about eight to ten feet from the hole. Had a lot of pictures of two wolves using this den, a bunch of the pictures were from a hour or two before we got there.”
Thanks to Nick and Brian for sharing these photos with Deer & Deer Hunting. If Brian’s name sounds familiar, it should. He is a former staff member of D&DH.
