Metro Trail Cam Let Down

I went over last night and pulled the trail cam pics from our metro hunt location.  This is the camera that was infested with ants a few weeks ago.  It took me a lot longer to get it back up than I wanted but it's up again.  I checked it after only 5 days in the woods to be sure we were getting a good angle and not a lot of non-deer pics.  The results were less than positive.  

A week ago I was cruising through the Bargain Cave at Cabela's and found some Evolved Habitats Rut-N-Apples and Acorn Frenzy.  They are on sale for $9.99 a bag, so I bought one of each.  

This fits into our philosophy of hunting on a budget but only if they work.  As you remember, we used the Hunter's Specialties® Vita-Rack® 26 Lick Site at our other location and it worked like a champ.  We set up the cam in a spot we had been getting great pics with no attractant and put down the Rut-N-Apples.  As you can see from the pics, it did get some attention, but not as much as I thought it would.  Maybe it needs a little more time.  

Eric is getting the pics from our northern two cameras today.  It has been agonizingly painful to wait the two weeks to see what we have there.
