TRAIL CAM SEASON
Part of the joy we get during spring and summer are the trail cameras we have been running. Every couple of weeks we get to take stock of the deer on the property, and renew our excitement for the hunts to come. This May is no different.
After turkey hunting, in which we had fun but did not shoot any turkeys, we put out the trail cams. Four total put out with no bait in front of them to draw the deer in. This first crop or pictures is just a plain inventory of the deer walking through on a regular day. To say we are excited is an understatement.
We pulled almost 200 pictures in two weeks. That is a pretty good number for this property and no bait. Even more importantly we had plenty of bucks mixed in with all the does. Years past the bucks havent started really making an appearance until later in the year. It will be interesting to see which ones stay around and how they grow. We have seen some good 8 pointers on camera but never in person. Maybe this will be the year the big ones walk by.
