Pulled Pics...Not Happy

That seems to be the norm for us this summer so far.  It is the first year we have run any sort of trail cams so we should be happy with anything I guess.  Unfortunately I am not a patient person and I do not take failure well.

I pulled the pics from our metro area hunting spot today.  There were a good amount of pics of does and fawns and only one non-shooter buck.  Eric is threatening to put him down in order to satisfy his drought from the last few years, but this guy is no shooter.  Getting a buck on camera at all would be great if we were in our northern property but here in the metro I know there are some brutes in the area.

Where we hunt is a natural funnel that the deer have to go through between a corn field and their bedding area.  They run by at all times of the day and are nearly impossible to pattern.  We have learned over the years that shooting a doe is as simple as putting your butt in the stand for a few days.  On the other hand, shooting a buck has been completely hit and miss mixed with some dumb luck.  I feel like there is a pattern out there, I just can't find it.

Here are a few pics for you:
