Picture 1 of 31

Welcome to deer camp.

Deer & Deer Hunting Editor Dan Schmidt had a blast hunting Vatoville Outdoors free-ranging ranch near Sonora, Texas, earlier in December 2011. Despite a devastating drought, Schmidt found plenty of evidence that deer hunting is alive and well in the Lone Star State. Read about his monster buck kill here.

These photos were collected throughout the hunt. Enjoy!

P.S. The producers of Deer & Deer Hunting TV need your help. They’re looking for photos and videos of your deer camp. They can be from anywhere in the country and from any time period – old or new.

Just think how exciting it would be for your deer camp to turn on the TV and see some familiar faces. E-mail photos, videos or links to
