I will commend you on the pictures. They are great. You have bigger ones waiting on you anyway. Next year or the year after he will be great. He is very nice now, but imagine another year on that guy!
thanks for the support hicks. i need it. i am just frustrated with not getting any pics of shooters. reason being is that when setting cameras on this property, i twice have jumped two different bucks that would go 140+ easily... one at the begining of july, one last week. i am just amazed how good they are at avoiding my cams. 2 of the 3 on this property are no flash IR's...
We ran BECS all summer and through the season and never got a pic of a shooter. Granted there was only one shooter we know of on the property but you would think he would wander in front of a cam at some point. If I remember right he was spotted 3 times out of various stands.
its amazing how they can dodge cameras...
No kidding. I just knew there were some nice deer in the area I had the camera hung. Never got them until I rotated the camera 180 degrees. Got all kinds. Next time I checked the camera, only the smaller bucks on the card. I know the big boys are still in there, but they know how to avoid the cameras. I think once they get accustomed to the cameras and learn there is no danger associated with them they will be more camera friendly. Need to keep the human scent around the camera pretty clear too though.
