This is my #2 favorite new camera spot for 2022. The camera had a moisture problem when I checked it this time so I took it home to dry out but I left the security box tied to a tree and will be putting a camera back at the end of winter.
I’ve been getting pictures at this little odd ball for a few years, I think he’s 4 years old now.
This was a good area for deer, but not the best for a camera because there is nothing to funnel them in front of it, I will probably try one of the trails entering it or paralleling it next year.
The deer are in their winter coats and the bucks are at peak fatness before the rut starts to peak making mostly active at night when the temperatures are at their lowest.
Time to trade in the deer rifle for the big cameraun
