I stuck this picture in the wrong place recently. I was asking for some "new eyes" to see if it looked like there was a little bone on its head. for the most part the response I got was that it was just a yearling anyway. I know, but I'm getting kinda antsy, I havent gotten one buck on camera all year, not one. I thought this would be a first.

I have repositioned this cam and hopefully will get a better angle on the next one. In hindsight I might try increasing the resolution on the camera too. I was worried at first about memory size and battery life when i first set this up, but it doesnt seem to be an issue.

well the picture sort of worked, just have to remember to resize it befor I post it.
If you attach a photo it shows up as a thumbnail bud. If you click it, it gets bigger. I need to add a border around them so people know it's a thumbnail.. Just one of those things on the list.

The deer doesn't look to be a spike or anything. I can't see for sure but he looks to have a rack.

I think with that new angle we should see some better pics next weekend for sure.
maybe with the new camera I got today I'd be able to get a little more resolution.
They were out of the 35's like yours, but I went there with the intention of buying a cam and I wasnt leaving empty handed. so I bought a 46.
It was a couple bucks more than yours so i could only get one. but I was impressed with the picture quality and shutter speed of yours so I made the command decission to break out the credit card.
(hope the missus dont find out)

next one will be a BEC just gonna have to save some more money first.

Wonder if they ever got anymore in after I bought the last 2 they had on the shelf a few weeks ago lol. I think you will like the 45 just the same as you would have the 35. When you going out to put up the new cam ?

Don't worry about the misses...just tell her it's my cam and your borrowing it....because mine are yours after all LMAO

I will second the BEC...I will have one. Thought it was going to be this year but things just didn't work out like I expected but, I should have one next summer for sure.

If that deer has bone on its head I would say that by the body size you would want to let it walk. It might be the angle of the picture but it looks kinda small and young.

Guess I don't have permission to access your picture Dante. I still say it is a buck though. Even if not, just to give you some encouragement! You sounded like you really needed it to be a buck. haha

Dante, Did you put the Primos out yet or are we doing that this weekend ?

I am chomping at the bit lol. I want to go check the cams so bad right now it's not even funny.

I don't know how people can put them out there and leave them for a month or longer without checking to see what's on it lol. I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve wanting to peak at my presents :D.

Get you a BEC and you don't have to worry about waiting to check it. ;)

I tried to win one at the BEC Shoot lol. Somebody won 2 of the 3 cams that was being raffled off and I was left with a ticket stub lol. That's about the only way I could/can afford one right now. I will have one next summer but I doubt I will have enough to blow on an Orion PC base cam though :(
