Nicer bucks disappeared from T Cams also. I am getting over 1,000 pictures on one my cams set between bed downs and oak groves and under some red oaks, but 70% does and fawns, 10% raccoons reminder smaller bucks and squirrels. Another cam set on a 5 year proven buck trail funnel has no nice bucks since the end of July. 2 cams set on the other side of the same large bed down area has not produced a good buck in the last 2 weeks. One of the addition cam sets on the edge of a big oak grove is producing 700+ pictures each two weeks , but 50% doe, 40% raccoons. My cams are set to take a series of three pictures so I am getting mutible pictures of the same deer and some are posing in front of the cams while eating corns.
Hoping EHD does not have a huge impact on the bucks as I am getting doe pictures. Positive thinking.....We did find a very nice 9 point on another one of our hunting areas dead at one of the ponds and it is reported the smell of dead deer in the big marsh area.
Many of the established trails from the past years do not have the tracks and usage they did in the past. Found 4 dead doe in my cam area. Will check again next week and put out and relocate some more T cams.
