This pic was taken using a stealth cam, but as you can see it was a bit delayed.Do not know why other than it was below zero several nights in a row, and maybe the cold just got to it. I did manage to get a few pics of some does and a button, but I think this is a fairly nice buck, but my buddy disagrees. Come on fellas, what is it? Buck, doe, age?? I will try and post a larger pic...
Too many variables for me to speculate age and sex. My buddy shot a spike up north last year that was quite a bit larger in the body than an 8 point I shot this year. Food/genetics/area etc. can all play a role in shape and size. Anyhow I was writing to tell you that I have a stealth cam also. The instructions mine came with said it wouldnt work right below 20 degrees. ALso when I set it up on a trail that is going to give a close shot I put duct tape on either side of the sensor so it will only trigger when the deer is centered. That has eliminated head and butt shots for me. If you are farther back it is not necessary. Although in this case it probaly would not have triggered at all if you had done that since the deer looks like it was already past when the shot was taken. Love those trail cmeras.
It's one of those robo-deer decoys the DNR uses, but someone stole the head. That be a pretty cool piece above the camp bar, invite some buds over and rotate the head position when they're not looking. :lol:
