Couple of decent bucks
« on: November 12, 2018, 06:42:29 PM »
I think it was Bearclaw a few weeks ago that mentioned he was using a low-end Tasco camera with decent success.  Since one of my old Moultries seems to have stopped taking pictures, I swung by Wally World a week or two ago and grabbed one of the Tascos.  It seems to be triggering pretty effectively, lots of pictures in a short period of time.  Got a lot of squirrels & small bucks & does, but the last two nights caught a bunch of shots of these two guys.  Both are shooters for sure.  I've seen "next year's" a couple of times this fall from the stand (including this morning), but no shot.  I won't let him go to next year if he gives me an opportunity.  The other guy that hunts the place has seen the big dude but no shot either.  This place is about a mile from my house as the crow flies and is getting surrounded by housing development so as long as these boys don't wander too far there's lots of opportunity for them to grow big.  That place has some pretty strong genetics for tall/wide 8 pointers. 

One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Those are great looking bucks, you still have lots of time to put one of them in the freezer. Keep after them and good luck with the rest of your season.

Just FYI - these pics also show what can be done with a mock scrape.  Before I hung the camera I spent all of about 15 seconds kicking away the leaf clutter in roughly a 3X3' area and spraying a little estrous high on the overhanging leaves and on the ground.  It is in a well traveled area, maybe 10-15' off a trail crossing.  Did it about a week before these pics were taken and have a ton of photos of does, small bucks, and now these two guys stopping to check for clues on who's in the neighborhood.
Took me far longer to strap the camera on the tree than to create the scrape.  Choosing the right setting is the critical thing in my view - have even done this without adding scent in the past and gotten decent traffic.  Once a critter starts depositing their calling card, the game is on.
