Thanks for the kudos gentlemen, I had a blast loosing the arrow (after six seasons of passing on bucks)!  I had almost forgotten what it was like, since snapping photos of horns isn't quite the same as coming to full draw on one!    :archer2:

Congrats. I have found sometimes we aren't measured in the shots we take as much as the shots we don't. 6 seasons is something to be proud of. Glad you found one you wanted.

Well done.
Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

Thanks Kentucky, I learned by listening to those who are in the business of writing about/promoting bowhunting, like TJ Conrads & Don Thomas ~ each of which who've written much on the subject over the years.  

Taking quality field photos isn't something you rush thru either...for quality shots we should consider:

-  the background (in the wild is best)
-  clean the animal & mouth area of blood
-  stick its tongue back in
-  plenty of light & flash - even during daytime (which I forgot this time)
-  photographer kneels & sits for various shots
-  and from different/multiple positions
-  takes LOTS of photos ("film" is cheap these days given digital cameras)
-  get close to the subject, minimize the scenery

Those are the top tips I consider.  Of course, practicing helps too, but getting those photo sessions creates a whole bunch of other discussions, dosen't it!     :jumper:
