View Full Version : some that made it so far

well checked cam's today, always seeing whats still about!!
and I am way down on pic's, and only got 3 bucks on cam
so its looking like I lost a bunch of bucks over the Buck gun season here
I know of several of my best one's that got shot in gun season,
so these two and one other are left
I'm on the fence now if I would shoot a buck this yr, unless something else wanders in I don't know about
at this point in the season, I always start to think, if they made it this far, maybe they will make it to next yr??
only two weeks left in the next season here , but tons of time for cheaters, and there always my biggest threat to my nicer bucks here!





and then there is this one, he has a bunch of little junk already, in 4 yrs if he makes it I would love to see what happens

Wow those first two are real nice. I sure would be tempted. Good luck keeping them on your place and safe.

Some real nice bucks there mrbb!! Nice to see color night time pics too, get so used to the IR blur with a lot of cams these days.

yea, I like color pic's at night too, they sure make it a lot better to see what you captured thats for sure

Your right. My next camera will be a attack flash.

12-14-2012, 11:28 AM
just remember the flash makes them stand out at night BIG time, and the light seems to help them grow legs!!
so lock it up as best you can
I highly recommend the bear box and a cable and 2 good 5 inch lag bolts, and a high end master loc
set up like this, so far its the only set up that has lasted this long at my place, where I have lots of crooks it seems about!

I'm going to build my own box out of 1/4" steel with a internal lock where the only thing showing is a key hole. I will bolt it to the tree with 4 lag bolts and a cable lock. I had the ir version grow legs and I'm hoping it will be the last time.

hahaha, I thought about beefing up the bear box myself, and have some what

problem becomes if you make it too solid, and they beat on it, it still screws up the dam camera's electronic's
had that happen before
they couldn't get it off, but from hitting it it stopped working, so didn't even gt a dam pic of the SOB!!
but word of advice too
I had a box made with just the key hole , and they broke something off in the dam key hole on me
ended up having to chain saw the tree down to get it off!( I have also had them chainsaw a tree down to get the camera too!!)
it still worked, but had to do a lot of work to save the camera! and get it to a place to drill out the lock!
some folks are just jerks I guess! !!
and maybe something to think about, best of luck!

that 1st buc.......would be hard to pass, as always GREAT pics, what no fox's this round????lol
no haven't got a fox now in about 2 weeks LOL
there about, hear them all the time screaming at what ever??

and the lands I have are only as good as they are due to me working my ass off planting food
but to be honest they are not as good as they should b
I am bordered on 3 sides by a SO called, no hunting property, and well if that was true, I'd have a haven for deer
but everyone cheats on the lands all around me, and I loose 90% of my good bucks (bucks 120+)every yr to cheaters, with maybe one or two if that that make it
making it harder on me to get to a better size, even if I pass, they have a low percentage of making it from now till they shed antlers
cheaters don't follow hunting season here, they hunt from the time velvet comes off till they shed them?????
But other wise, ys I am very lucky to have what I do, even with the troubles, could always be worse I guess!, or better too!
