The ones in my videos don't look that big body wise but who knows.They get a lot of corn and soy beans to eat and they have the greatest body fat content of any deer I've shot anywhere else.

The corn seemed to suffer but the beans seem bushier and taller than last year.

That buck came from over by Six Flags Amusement park off of Central Ave. in Prince georges County.They chased me off that year,they said I was hunting on thier buffer zone property.Too bad.It was one heck of a good spot.

Back to the original post.. chesterflick-- one thing that i have noticed on my trail cameras is that does almost always lead the way. What I mean is that when you look at your pics, before you see any bucks on there, you'll almost always see does pics first. even during the off rut time. i have also noticed that bucks keep their distance from does sometimes... so you might be getting alot of pics of the does, but the bucks may be on the other side of the tree from your camera. also, bucks right now are in bachelor groups. They tend to use different trails that doe/fawn trails. These trails are generally smaller and harder to notice.
One of my trail cameras has a 30 sec time period it waits inbetween pics. you might be getting the does' pic, and then the buck walks through while the camera is in "wait" period. I sometimes see alot of LARGE hind-ends and you can tell they are not does.
Most generally the deer are there, take some does if you think there are too many.
