You never know. I would say if they feel safe there and have cover around they would go in your food plot at night for sure but hard to say.



I can tell from the pictures they walked out of the woods right into the food plot. Have to figure out how to get them to come around during the day...

Buzz I can see why you took up predator hunting. Seems like you have A LOT of big cats around.

Do you guys have any advice to get better pictures of what's walking around my food plot? The plot runs west/east the long way. I set the camera up on the south side towards the west corner and angled it towards the north east corner. I have the camera on a 4x4 I drove into the ground but it's only 2.5-3 feet tall. Should I put it on something taller? Doesn't seem to be tripping as often as it should.

It could be the cheaper game cam, maybe you guys have found some cams take better shots in open areas?

Up higher will help a bunch.

I've got two cheapos. One is solid the other is junk.

I've got a couple right in that 150 range that are damn nice.

And two I have that I spent big money on 300 ish and they don't seem to be any better than the 150 dollar range ones.

Best of luck.

edit.

Looking at the picture below it's about 130 yards to the back tree line. And you are looking at about 100 yards across.

How high off the ground do you have that one tadder? And how close do the animals need to be to trip it?

Here's a few I've got this past week.

I'm really struggling to decide in the middle pictures if that guy is a shoot or not. He's nice wide and tall, but doesn't have any mass to him. Thoughts?

The last picture the 9 pointer is the first deer I've really seen that has any mass to him at all. Hopefully, a big heavy massed buck strolls through and gets a few ladies around there to help the herd that I'm watching.

bottle bass , a good rule of thumb for trail cam pics is to have the cam hanging/strapped to a tree or post at your waist height , so I do agree with tadder52 that you need to go higher , BUT I do believe that tadder52 has his set up alittle too high .... Tadder52 ,shooters are going to be at your discretion, so your going to have to make the decision on whether the crab claw buck is a shooter or not . That buck is basically a main frame eight point with a crab on his one side . He does have some height going for him but his spread isn't past his ears for the most part , and no he doesn't have much mass . So as far as scoring goes it won't score high .... The bottom pic buck isn't going to score high either .... I personally would let both go with the big hope of letting the crab buck get another year beneath his belt .... Now all that said if you decide you want to take one of those two , well then I would take the crab buck... I will guarantee you that if you harvest either of those deer , and you then get your up close view of its antlers your going to think that they looked nicer in the pics ... (Ground shrinkage) Most people would be happy with either buck though.

Tadder, they both look like nice bucks. I'm not a fan of how they would 'score.' Whichever deer presented the best opportunity would be harvested around here. 8+ points and decent rack is good enough for me.

Bass: My camera is at chest height. Trophy rock sitting at about 10-12 feet in front of it. Can't really move it farther out due to it being a working hay field. I had it set a little lower, but was completely over whelmed by the grass on the outside of the tree line.

It really not what they are gonna score. The bottom buck in the bottom pick I'll definitely pass on. He'll be nice in a year or two.

The claw buck I'm curious about. The farmer who hays it has seen him and was damn impressed even from a couple hundred yards. If I can get eyes on him without a gun in my hand will really help. I'm not afraid of passing on a deer with no way to take him!!
