i check the cameras once a week. i hope to see him on there next week, daylight would be most excellent. if i do i was kinda thinking the same thing, but there are a lot of people walking, riding horses, dirt bikes and walking dogs very near by. i like to get a good handle on what is it a piece of woods. sometimes there are areas that just aren't sporting anything i want. i will however leave a camera in there and a climber on stand by at home if something does show up while the season is on going. i just got into what i am considering my favorite spot last weekend with cameras. being such a deer poor state i use the cameras to keep an eye on different areas while i hunt another. I've been know to sit a stand all day and go check cameras in the dark just to stay on top of things. the flash ones suck to check in the dark. takes 20 mins for the stars to stop blinking.

sounds like a plan.on my piece early on ill hang the camera buy the pond which has clover.This gives me an indication of overall numbers and general health of the herd.I have since moved my cuddyback to my favorite ridge where it will stay until last week of august.After that i guess im paranoid but i dont go in my woods until the oct 15 bow opener here in new york.

that sounds like a good plan. here its not "my" woods one piece of woods. we have to have multiple woods. the deer just don't hang in one spot for more than a couple days then they are elsewhere, could be a mile away, then days later back. just lots of woods to cover to try and stay in contact with deer for the season or the days we can hunt. i guess our deer just aren't as predicable, well in the big picture. if they are in here and i know it then i can kinda predict what might happen.

field

ronn it would be great if u could get that field cut a few weeks before your opener.Everybody thinks you gotta spend a 1000 on food plots a fresh cut field yielding new greens just as good,and from what you describe like where i hunt the deer appreciate it and they come.

its been cut since that pic. took the rider in. the folks that let put the plot in normally cut it/bush hog it but the tractor went down. its crimson and white clover with a couple different grasses. the clovers are up nice right now. i hope the guy gets the tractor going for one more cut. soon i hope. but with the heat and lack of rain it really isn't very thick right now. all pretty small deer using it, does, yearlings, and a couple i believe to be 2. i think i got about $250 into it, 2 years ago, and the bulk of that was having a guy come in and till it. but you're right if you just keep a "hay field" cut regularly the deer like the new growth best. last sat when i checked the camera there were beds in the part of the field that is my plot.
