Game Camera Activity 7-19 & 7-20
Only one buck who seems to be the 8-Point from the last video showed up on 7-19 then on 7-20 we had a lot more activity. In total four bucks are seen two large 8-Points I now call “the brothers” a smaller 8-point and a 6-point.
In addition to the raccoons you may also notice a rabbit as it begins to get lighter tward the end of the photos. He starts under the feeder and then ends up off to the right as the deer come back to the feeder. Life is tough for mountain rabbits they are never as big or as fat as field rabbits, may be this little guy will fatten up a bit on the corn?
The game camera is a Bushnell 8MP Trail Camera with Built In Color Viewer I got it at WalMart and here it is on their website. http://bit.ly/ppp1FJ
I can’t find it anywhere else so I am not sure if this model is perhaps made for WalMart by Bushnell or something to that effect, it isn’t even on Bushnell’s own site. I can tell you based on my experience thus far I think any of the Bushnell cameras are a good investment. Make sure you budget in money for the memory card though.
I just love the way the one big 8 sort of ghosts away at the end. The music playing is “Born Country” by Alabama. I figured that this would make a better youtube video than just a bunch of stills. I run the camera on stills on occasion because it doesn’t provide time stamps when set to video.
Thanks for sharing Jack, very cool! Very nice viewing while listening to a great song! Can’t wait to see more!
Great video Jack, I know you wont be lacking for venison this coming hunting season LOL.. Cya Brent
@Brent, well we shall see these guys sure like the cover of darkness. Now there is this big fat doe that practically lives just off the main road on a small piece of vacant land, I am thinking she may meet a broadhead before either of the brothers.
This was a nice end to a 5 day drought of no activity on the camera.
That is so awesome! Thanks for sharing!
@Jack our bucks don’t do the cover of darkness to closer to the hunting season but with that activity we see on that camera one of them is bound to make a mistake during hunting season LOL.. Dam Its hot up here in Michigan I dont know how you all do it down there in them southern states, ran out to my truck to get my bandanna and bring in the garbage cans and the temp reading said 106deg ughhh LOL..
@Brent yea temps have a lot to do with it and the area is a good one for lower temps at night. It was 77 for the low on my deck last night but notice it was 66 on the camera, the hollow catches the cooler air that basically falls down the mountain. So I do expect as the temps drop they will be more active in daylight.
Thank you for sharing those great photos! Looks like you won’t go hungry any time soon! ;^D
When my husband and I first got married, we lived by Lake Belton. The place was deer infested! But out here we rarely see a deer.. too open I guess.. I love seeing your cam photos. Keep them coming!
Yipee! Nice to see all those I bet.
Now that I have seen this I am going to curl up in a ball and cry myself to sleep tonight knowing that Florida’s deer don’t look that good. They do look delicious though. Happy hunting when it kicks off.
MMMMM… Lots of backstraps!
Good Luck harvesting those tender morsels!
Wow, those are some nice looking bucks! Put that rack on a Michigan 300 pound bruiser and we’ll be talking! 🙂
So Jack, how much would it cost me to bowhunt on your property?
Say a million dollars LOL.
Hey Jack, We had the same problem with Axis Deer at our place but the feeder was about 6 feet off the ground. Come to find out the bucks were standing on their hind legs and using their antlers to bang the spreader that throws the corn. LOL Now the feeder is 10 feet off the ground.. Deer are pretty smart!!
