    Great pics. I need to move my camera. Most of my pics are at night. Need the deer to start showing up during day light hours!

    I see it a little differently. I prefer to setup on field edges knowing that I will get 99% night pictures. Deer are somewhat used to humans being there (why they visit at night). If you go poking around where they feel comfortable, you might get a few pics but also alert the deer that it is time to move on.

    When I go into where (I think) the deer are in the daylight, I will have a stand on my back and a rifle in my hand. No need to give them any warning. Just my opinion.

    I just want to move my camera in general. Have had it on the same food plot for 2 weeks and get the same buck at 3:00am almost every night. I have a scrape line along the river that I'm thinking of moving it to, to try and get an idea of what and when he's making the scrapes. I'm going to hunt the spot Saturday morning and then leave the camera in there when I leave at mid day. I won't hunt the spot again until the next week and I'll check it then to see what's going on. It's an easy spot to get in and out without disturbing too much. I think the buck is bedding in a swamp about 300 yards away.

    Those are sweet pictures. We were out this past weekend checking treestans and there were numerous fresh rubs and scrapes. I don't bow hunt but if I did I would be in the woods this weekend. Can't wait for blackpowder!

    I used to put my camera on field edges, the last time i did, I got 150pics of the farmer bailing his hay! Lol. I thought, Wow, this should be good, but it was just the land owner.
