      This guy walked about 6 feet past my climber while I was watching a powerline .5 mile away this morning.

      I’m out of buck tags, but I would have rather gotten to watch this big guy (for north ga) than the lone fawn I saw at 250 yards.

      Also got this beautiful hen one morning last week.

      Actually got a lot of pics but the camera has been out over a scrape for three weeks.

      You should’ve left them on some rub lines back at the point.

      I know… Thought about doing that too… Still a bit paranoid leaving a cam on public land..during hunting season.

      If you hunt my lock on at club, I have a cam set up on a trail intersection on way to stand. Been there since muzzleloader season.

      Is that buck above the 7pt you had pics of this summer?

      No. That boy was bigger and older. First pic of this boy. Looks like a 3.5 to me

      I don’t use trail cams for hunting–have no problem with those who do–but cams have become a whole new off-season sport for me. It’s the unexpected critters and behaviors that are best, like three adult mountain lions on the gut pile at my elk kill this year. And many times elk, bears, turkeys, once even a weasel, have stuck their faces right into the camera. Photo quality has become so good, if you have the light angle right and no distracting junk in view, trail cam pics can be as good as those we take ourselves and in my case better. Video would be even better but the batteries wouldn’t last any time. By the way, if you’ve not discovered lithium batteries, they have many times the life of anything else and aren’t so affected by deep cold. I use nothing else now in all my outdoor gear, even flashlights. That is a big bobcat.

      I don’t use them for hunting either. That cam hadn’t been checked in over three weeks and I pulled the cam and stand before even checking it. I’ll start running them to do turkey inventory soon, until the season comes in and I’ll pull em out
