Sparring Bucks by small water source

Unread postby lynchpin » Thu Oct 20, 2011 10:55 am

The following camera is by a small water hole between timber and a corn field. Seems to get a lot of attention at night... only a few day time pictures out of 175 taken over the last two weeks.

Very cool pics. Thanks for sharing.
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.

If you want to kill a deer you have to be in the woods.

The following camera is by a small water hole between timber and a corn field. Seems to get a lot of attention at night..

Cool pic's... If all the pictures are at night, I would assume one of two things ( or both )
Either the water hole is too far from bedding, or your alerting the deer to your presence putting a camera there making them nocturnal at that spot... If I planned on hunting that location my camera would be back at the cornfield or somewhere else. Not at the water hole.

I believe you are correct... remember your "what are your weakness threads" this is one of the things I will be changing. I also believe the property next door and the property I hunt gets a lot of traffic that I wasn't aware of.... I haven't been out there in 2 weeks and 5 ATV passed by at the fence line my last sit. I gave them a nice wave.
