Let’s see the trail cam pictures 2019


Recommended Posts

Trail camera sensors are amazing but not perfect. I have had the sun and clouds set them off as well as branches, grass and bugs. I have also sat in a tree watching deer in front of the cameras and noticed afterwards the camera never captured the scene. I attempt to set the trail cameras up where I have the best light... sun behind them... and where grass, sun and branches don’t trigger them. I have noticed that elevated cameras pointing down can at times help eliminate triggering by grass blowing in the wind. Trail cameras are fun even with their shortcomings. 

 

I usually carry a weed whip to clean out in front of field edge cameras and while I walk I cut down thistles in the fields which makes the landowner happy.

I’m getting pretty pumped about these bulls.  I have a bull permit for the first time after applying for five years.  I’ve always had bulls within shooting range hope that trend continues.  If I get o

Looks like a moose was using my outhouse up at camp.

The deer are hitting this food plot on a pretty regular basis.  If they stay in their pattern, should be a fun early fall.

April/May 2019 Turkey dusting site in my soon to be clover patch.

 

Update, Set a camera on the food plot a week and a half ago. Pulled the card Friday. Two deer pretty regular on video munching the clover. What I didn't like were the three coyotes using the food plot more than the deer. One is a red phase. Don't have the videos uploaded yet.

Checked a couple cams at my Expanded Management zone area. These are from a new stand site. You can see the ladder stand in background upper left. This fawn and several does and a spike horn but nothing big. That's fine, this is a management bow hunt and I key on does. The big bucks always show up later on in November and just before this hunt ends in early December. These deer are traveling both am and pm within 20 yards of the new stand. Only concern is I got several coyotes on camera as well. I haven't tested my scoped knee on any type of ladder so am hoping I can get up in a stand on the Opener September 7th. I prefer a perch to being on the ground.

Nothing earth shattering except that this doe and another behind her walked through the tip of my property within a few yards of a ground blind and then down towards the house past a ladderstand. I can't hunt my property with bow until October (regular archery season) and then of course the firearm season in November etc. When there are does about, the bucks will follow.

Some of my food plots have gone a bit on the quiet side.  A few with battery, chip or camera issues.  Others just quiet.  I added a few cameras to my "B and C" properties to see what was lurking around.  Very happy with what I have found to date.

I also like the other critter photos when they come about.  I have had a red-tailed hawk show up 3x's in the past two weeks.  It appears he catches something, but not sure what it is.

Great captures fellars!  Nothing too exciting on the HBV Cams this year so far.  One of my cameras bought the farm so lost about a month of shots on one guzzler.  So far no big bulls or big bucks...place is a cow/calf and doe/fawn factory.  Just the usual captures:
