    Game Cam

    My long time hunting buddy and I went out to the hunting lease Sunday and spent the day making final preparations for this year's rifle season. To my surprise, my friend had a game cam on at one of our feeders. I never use them. I like being surprised. Looks like another good season in store. the entire property is low fence/no fence. All deer are free range indigenous whitetails. Yet we continue to take nice bucks every year. Here's what we found. (Note, the dates on the pics are a week off. My friend flubbed the date setting. LOL )

    Well it appears to me that in one of the pics a deer is changing the timer for the feeder
    and if that buck could do that maybe he changed the time stamp on the cam to confuse

    When I was young, pulling up 50 lb. bags of corn with one hand while standing on top of a ladder was no big deal. Those days are gone. Three or four years ago, we started buying feeders on high tripods with hand winches to raise and lower. Probably the smartest thing we ever did! We still have a couple that require ladders or standing on the toolbox of my F250 but life has become much easier.

    35 Shooter, that buck is investigating the winch. Look closely and you will see a crank handle. Maybe he was trying to lower the feeder!!!

    I didn't grow up with feeders but, if properly maintained, they will keep the deer on your property, for the most part. The rut hasn't started where we hunt but probably will in the next thirty days. Then we will start seeing bucks that aren't year-round residents. Those on the camera are locals. I have been watching bucks sparring in our backyard in the Hill Country lately. Rut is about to begin up there.

    Our hunting lease is in East Texas West of Huntsville. We are very near the Sam Houston National Forest and the Eastern portion has a river tributary that serves as a wildlife highway, as all waterways do. I had no idea, when we took the lease, that we would have the abundance and quality of deer that are there. We have antler restrictions and take only a few each year. These last three years, racks have been larger each year.

    Here are a couple we took last year. I got my son's girlfriend to pose with mine (12 pt.). The guy in the second pic is my hunting buddy. His deer is a 10 pt. -

    If it doesn't start raining for days. Last season it was so wet and sloppy even 4 wheel drive couldn't get you anywhere but stuck. Had to walk in and drag them out. I'm getting too old for that!!! I've got deer carts and they help but it's still a lot of work.
