Deer Cam Dodge City
« on: August 13, 2008, 10:19:24 PM »
I bought a camera last fall and seemed to have some problems with it. I put it back up and not seeing much action at the feeder at the moment, but there is plenty of irrigated corn in the area for groceries.

I did catch this small buck-



I hope I can get some big boys slipping by.

He is still in velvet, so time will tell how big he will get. I think when all is said and done he will be small. There isn't much width, but from what I can tell he may turn out with some pretty good height.

What I am waiting for is the buck that belongs to that typical 6 x 6 sheds I found last year.

I am disappointed with my cam, especially with night shots. I have had some night triggers, but the flash isn't strong enough to get any images of any quality. I really think the big boys will show up on the night time shots if they are visiting my feeder. I probably need to spend some big bucks on a better cam.

What you are seeing is a Cabela's deer feeder that has a ladder going up to the hopper.

We do use tripod stands like this one my son and grandson are on.

 Maynard what kind of camera do you use. You take really nice pics. I've been looking for something better then this Kodak Z710 I have. It doesn't take bad pictures but you can't really zoom in on anything without it getting blurry.

Maynard what kind of camera do you use. You take really nice pics. I've been looking for something better then this Kodak Z710 I have. It doesn't take bad pictures but you can't really zoom in on anything without it getting blurry.

Some of the older pics I have posted came from a dated Nikon CoolPix 3.2MPix, 3X zoom. It was my first digital after shooting 35mm.

The newer pics are from a Fujifilm S8000fd. 8.0MPix, 18Xzoom that can go digitally to 90X. Personally, I don't really like it, but it is a transition camera until I can put the money together to get what I really want, today it would probably be a Canon 5D. That camera with the lens I want, plus maybe an extra lens would be about $3,200-$5,000. I really don't like the point and shoot cameras like the one I am using now, I prefer to be in charge of the focusing ring and the aperture setting. So until I get some money ahead or land a job that furnishes a nice Canon or Nikon I will be using the Fuji.

I haven't looked at point and shoot cameras for awhile, but I was considering several that would fit in the pocket of my bib overalls for easy carry. I think I was looking at a Leica/Panasonic and a Sony CyberShot. The bigger body Sony DSC H50/B is similar to my Fuji and I think I would have preferred it, but oh, well.

Changed my memory stick this evening. I found some huge tracks behind the camera and was hoping that he went in front, but nothing on the stick, except a couple lightning shots. BTW, the camera date is wrong.

Those are some great deer.  It is a shame the pics aren't better.  It may be time to invest in a new trail cam.
