Yep. I have 13 or 14 up all around the property. Been there since before turkey season, so I'm itching to see what happens by. Every so often this summer I'd rake underneath the vine and there would usually be tracks in them next time I checked. only one cam on a vine, but pretty good action.
A variety of styles...
That's a nice buck.
Good to hear, I put out a couple in front of cameras and they are not used much.
Was thinking of trying rope ones. Don Higgins has a good video on them.
Ropes work, but vines are the best.
We get more pics of deer on the rope than on the vine right next to it. The vines are effective and free, so I like them best, too.
I'll tell you, those white cedars are tough to beat for attraction value. Cost much more though. 5200 pics in one week. Glad I didn't have to sort through them!
You should of whipped the end of the rope 6” from end.
Experiment in process, I put an old rope and a vine 10 yards apart with cameras on them. So far from a distance the rope seems to be getting more action.
I don’t know if I would say one is better than the other, they both will work. Location is the key imo.
Next year swap them and see if there is a difference.
some of those pictures doesn't show a scrape beneath the licking branch, I thought licking branches almost always had scrapes below them? Are you guys getting them coming in to the branches without a mock or real scrape?
They do work but location is definitely key. Literally moved one 4 feet from a previous trail and I went from no action on the vine to a community gathering. Some of my areas I still haven’t figured out the right spot. I’ll try moving them again in January.
Mine best ones are where they are within 100 yards of their bedding where they enter my plots, they usually go running for them. I’m a rope guy.
