Bucks so far

These are all from a broad geographic swatch of Central-ish PA. All public land, much of which resides in areas where I have heard numerous times there are "no deer". I am very pleasantly surprised at the quality of bucks out there, and wow, am I ever psyched for the upcoming season.

In this first summer of trailcamming, I was hoping just to see a representative sample of what is out there. So far I've gotten target bucks from each one I've put out, so it hasn't really helped me focus at all, looks like I will be spreading my effort out in a half dozen or more different areas as per usual. This trailcam thing, over the past year, has become one of my favorite hobbies in and of itself, however. Sitting down with a cold ale and reviewing pics is about my favorite thing going anymore.

Yes indeed. Part of that does owe to my criteria in selecting hunting areas, first attribute I look for is refuge from the orange army, often at the expense of sheer quantity of deer. But the age structure is remarkable. I am getting more pictures of legal bucks than yearling spikes/forkies, and an incredible ratio of those are these quality 3+ year olds. Just goes to show you also how wary they become around age 3, because that ratio will undoubtedly flip when it comes to sightings from the treestand.
