That is a great shot of a polarbear in a snowstorm, I can even see the whites of his eyes! It's hard to tell with the glare and all, but there might be a touch of gray to his head, What do you think? Hmmm? Now, with a buck that's running dark, he will come out in the daylight, when he thinks there is something that he wants that is only there in the daylight. I would suggest one of those scent drippers for a licking branch, if you can find one, or create your own, with a mock scrape, the licking branch, and the scent dripper togeather. If he believes that he has a house guest duing the daytime, he will either want to meet her or fight him depending on his temperment and where the rut stands, and the voices in his head at the time. I don't know what the best scent to drip at this time in your area would be, but someone else is likely to address that issue, and good luck! ;)

No problem, rt click and open the pic with paint, click image, drop down to resize, click. You will see horizontal and vertical set at 100 percent (that is your pic now) delete 100 percent and insert 50 percent, that will shrink your image by half. if it is still to large do it again. increase or decrease the percentage until the pic is the right size. keep the percentage matched on horizontal and vertical and the proportions will stay even. once it is the right size click "save as" and lable it then try to load it, You can also change it form from say a Jpeg to a gif which requires a smaller file. pic may not be quite as clear, but will do. good luck. ;)

very nice, that first one has to be 20". Now the trick is getting them to come in during shooting light! Good Luck post pics when you bag him..

Suggestions to make them come during daylight....that's like a secret we'd all like to know. But a few thoughts....
First, don't bait! If they know they can come feed in darkness, why would they want to show up during daylight.
Second, figure out where they are bedding during the day and move closer to that area in hopes of catching them early when they rise, or if they return late in the morning.
Third, make sure your best funnel / rut stand is ready for the week of Halloween and hope they get love struck and move then.

Other than that, you can't change them, they only change when they want to or feel a need to.

Wait for late October and November to roll around. He will most likely be chasing does and moving in daylight.

That 8pt looks like he has some good genes. Very symetrical. It would be nice to let him hang around for a year or two, and see what he is like then.
