The six- and seven-pointers were around all summer, then the bigger buck joined them.
Robinson said his pictures have dropped way off since he had to pull his mineral stations prior to Sept. 1. But I can assure him those bucks are still around.
While we’re not getting as many shots with our trailcams now, the info we’re getting can be helpful to us in preparation for hunting. Or, for those of us who are urban archery hunting, in choosing hunting sites over the next few weeks. I checked cameras on an urban spot in Roanoke County last week. One had pictures of the landowner mowing. The other had quite a few does (though none during daylight hours).
For those who might have missed it, my Outdoors page feature in the Sept. 8 Roanoke Times was a primer on trailcam evolution. (The story apparently didn’t make it online. I will post the link when it does. UPDATE: The story is online and the link is updated.) It’s amazing to think how far they’ve come in just a few years.
What kind of cameras are you guys using this year? Do you have a favorite?
