The work youve done is likely changing their patterns and what they do also.

Another thing you might do is over those two weeks, leave the camera alone. If you are checking the cam frequently on top of the habitat work that could have an affect as well.

If you did your hinge cuts in January or February they would likely be there the next morning and it would look like a cattle feeding station.

I was just laughing about this with a timber buyer yesterday who talked about that experience.

In summer in our area the deer have plenty to eat so they will shy away from areas with human scent.

Not to worry. you have greatly improved your habitat and they will use it when the time comes.
