wow, pretty buck! hope you get a shot at him this season! good luck.
Lets hope it was the reflection or him just smelling the traces of the bear.i think the ir reflection caught his eye. scent????????
nope. i run the cameras year round.this thing has been there since april. just dash in and change the card. heck its on the same batteries. and they still every now and then sniffer it.Ronn you sure you don't have a salt lick hanging from the camera
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.good luck to you nice deer.now i would leave the area alone you no hes there.Surprise him opening day.
