Who's still running trail cams

Recommended Posts

Still running 3 here, will probably pull 2 of them sometime in the next few weeks and the other on the minerals may just leave out.  As of last week a lot of bucks here were still hanging onto their antlers.  Got a few decent 8's that I know made it through, and had one pretty unique buck that I am going to have to look back to see if we had any other pics of, but he will at the top of my targeted bucks for the 17 season if he is still around.  Gonna be real interested to see if those 8's add any points and how much mass they add.

Being we got pics of that deer on the last pull on Feb 13th and again on March 2, good chance he is in his core area, right?

How about anyone else, getting good survivor pics or all your cams pulled already?

Pulled all the MO cams during my last trip there in early December.  Still running 3 here in MS though.  Set them in positions more so to try to catch turkeys.  Still getting bucks too with their antlers.  Got a young buck up close last week that had recently dropped his right side.  The rest are still holding both sides.  I was getting a pretty decent 8 for this area on 1 cam that was a regular arrival.  He hasn't shown up in a couple of weeks now.  Other than him, nothing else to get excited about since the season closed the end of January.  Bucks typically start shedding in early to mid March here.  I'll do some looking for sheds this weekend while I'm doing other post season chores at the MS club.

We have a couple out in KY. Here is devil horn! He's at least 5.5 years old and will be number one on the hit list. He never showed up during daylight hours last year.

Running 1 right now since other three aren't working anymore. Found a set of 4 wild games on ebay with a card reader so those should be here Tuesday

Set our 10 cams out in MO last week.  9 are on mineral licks and 1 is on an isolated water source in a cedar thicket.  I'll swap the cards out next trip there in August.

Old thread brought back.  lol.  Original topic was about leaving cams out after season to see what you had leftover that made it through the prior season, kinda morphed into another topic.

We had a real unique buck I know made it through that should be a pretty special deer this year for this area, and had a few other +/- 2.5 year old 8's from last season that also made it that should be nice this year.  Had kind of hoped by now we would have at least had some pics of something to get excited about but nada.  The one would have been a sure target buck/shooter if we were getting any pics, would be very easily identifiable.  Mineral site activity has been very slow.  

Looks like he will be a real nice one Frank.  

As of yet this summer our trail cam activity is the poorest I have ever seen since I started running cams with the old film stealth cams way back when.  Had about 20 deer pics in 3 weeks on the cam I checked yesterday, normal should be about 20 pics in a day.  Last time I checked the mineral site had about 10 deer pics in a month, did not even bother to swap the card since that cam has a viewer screen and I could see there was nothing of interest.  Mineral site activity there typically is around 200-300 pics a week, so disappointing to say the least.

I may look at moving a camera around and getting my old homebrews fixed up and running and back out.

got out 4 at the moment, pretty much have it covered as far as what we have this year, unless something moves back in after velvet gets rubbed off. always a chance a huge buck comes around during the rut

I have 5 out right now. Want to check one today. Hoping to get at least 2 - 3 more cams out. Some to see what's out there and some just to try and get cool photos :-D
