I am a beginning wildlife photographer and I love to photograph whitetail deer. My favorite place to do this is in Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here the deer are very acustomed to humans and you can get within twenty feet of most. The problem is I only get to go their maybe four times a year and when I do go I only get to stay about two days. I need more oppurtunities to photograph these animals so I have started to photograph in my hometown where the deer are wild and hunted. People say that deer are imposible to sneak up on but I figure if hunters can do it, than so can photographers. Any tips on how or where to find deer, how to photograph them in the wild, tracking, scent control, blinds, ect. would be greatly welcomed. Thanks. P.S. How do you photograph deer in the woods. Everytime I try to, there is not enough light and I can never find them in mid day. Do you have to have a f/2.8 lens.
