2018 Trail Camera Pictures

Recommended Posts

I know I'm not the only one watching cameras already. Some people don't even put them out till July or August but I run them year round. What are y'all that have them out been seeing? I'll try to remember to keep posting as I get enough to make a short video. I put together a short one and uploaded it today. I'm trying to learn the editing process and it's not fast for me since I'm not too tech savvy and it takes me a minute. I've honestly been watching tons of YouTube videos to learn. I'm using editing software called Shotcut. I still have a ton left to learn to look fancy like all the people I love following on YouTube, but I'm trying. Anyway, here's the short video of some of this weeks footage.

Nice

Thanks KahrMan. I have only seen one that looked like he was going to be shooter so far. I'm hoping it's the big 8 from last year but not sure. I've seen other people's trail cam pics on Facebook hunting pages and some of those suckers have tons of bone already!

Watched doe eat off the redbud tree in my back yard yesterday. Does that count? Lol I have seen dawn's and does here before, but never mature bucks.

Is that a salt block you are watching?

Yes, I have a white salt block in front of my other camera and this one is a Redmond Rock (trophy rock). They have been hitting them hard for  several months!

I picked up another camera this week. Academy had their Browning Command Ops cameras marked down from $119 to $89. I have been running Browning Strikeforce HD's for years and love them so I'm sure this will be a good camera as well.

My son can't keep trail cams. Poachers keep taking them. The game wardens did catch one bunch last year but he and my grandson have another bunch that just stole 3 cameras that were less than 2 weeks old. They are now working on figuring out how he to hide trail cams to protect their trail cams.

This is from last week. I'll check the cameras again tomorrow or Sunday. I'm excited to see how the new Command Ops camera worked. I put it on a trail that splits the property I hunt on. I planted some of that throw n grow food plot on it a couple weeks ago. I'll be able to watch deer on the trail and document food plot growth at the same time.

This video is a little long (5ish minutes) but I had quite a few things I was very happy to see. The deer are obviously still hitting salt hard but also already eating my throw n grow food plot that I only planted 2 weeks ago. I'm pretty dang excited to see it work since I was hesitant about it working that easy. Also the first fawns of the year appeared on camera. They're not newborns so they've been around just not in front of my cameras. I haven't seen any of the big bucks yet but I'm enjoying everything I see. One thing I haven't seen is many turkey or raccoons. But since I'm not putting out corn like I usually do, that's probably why. Anyway, here it is, enjoy!

Man it was a great week to check cameras! Check it out and hope y'all are getting some good pictures as well. A little over a month and I'll be up in a lock on hoping a velvet monster strolls through. I hung another Millennium m100u this morning and have a Hawk Helium XL stand on the way for the backside of the property.

You have some nice bucks.  That first 8 point sure is nice.  Don't know if I could pass him up but he would be a monster next year.

First time seeing them this year but I think that 8 may be one I let walk last year before his left side fell off. If it is, I'm sure glad I passed on him. I was after a big 8 last year but I don't think he's shown up yet because he was ridiculously tall, just needed more width. As hard as it was passing everything last year, I think it was well worth the agony lol.

Good looking deer you have there.

Came out to see this in my back yard the other day. Rare to see deer on my acre. I think this is the 4th time in 17 years. Looking later it seems like they ate the tops out of all my volunteer tomatoes plants at that stump. Lol

Then noticed momma was ahead but still watching.

Thank you!

I guess the tomato dinner was the price of admission for you getting to see them lol. Cool pictures, but hate they got your plants.
