Putting on some bone in S Alabama
« on: August 09, 2009, 05:41:49 PM »
The first pic is a young one that has some growing I will let him walk another year.

The second and third pic  is one shaping up to be on my hit list, he still has about 2 months growing to do.

On another note these are pics from my new rc-60. My reconyx gave me three thousand pictures plus in a month and still had 75% battery life.
In my opinion this camera is as good as it gets. The debate between flash and IR and whether flash scares deer is over for me. Ihave a cuddeback with flash set up also, and have had it for several years. The cuddeback is on a feeder and i only gets three or 400 pics before battery dies. I very rarely get the same deer twice in a photo except young ones. Once the camera goes off the deer split for a while. The IR reconyx had deer staying for an hour plus at a mineral site, literally gettin 100 pics of one deer. Also I am seeing older deer on the IR Reconyx that I have never seen on my flash cuddeback. So in my opinion the flash scares deer.

Awesome looking buck.  I don't think I have ever seen one where his brows where the longest points on a rack.  If the other points catch up, he will be a monster.

I think they'd be on my hit list tool.  Is your IR the visible light kind or the invisible light?
