Here is a little buck that was captured in my back yard about a hundred yards from the house. This was at 6:00 AM on 6/30/01
This is the same deer at 9:00 AM on 6/30/01
Here he is again at 9:30 PM on 7/1/01. I think this little fellow has a sanctuary in the thick woodlot behind the house. I was a little nervous putting the camera out there because it is only about 60 yards from a blacktop road that every redneck in AL uses to access the river. The camera is also just about twenty yards from a pipeline right of way. Today when I went to put more corn out I found they just cut the right of way so I’ll be curious to see how this effects the little bucks movement patterns. I know he must of felt secure moving through the tall grass to get to my camera set up. Now with it cut his path is exposed to the county road. He’ll adapt I am sure. He has finally started feeding under my deer feeder. It is about 60 yards from the house, but shielded from view by the thick woods between my back fence and the pipeline right of way. Last year I couldn’t keep enough corn in the feeder for deer, now I only have one deer in the area it seems. This reminds me, I have a real nice article on using these cameras to determine deer ratios and deer per acre information if anyone is interested I post the basic information given.
One more thing, I finished my second camera except for the holes in the cover. It works well coming off the #2 pin and is quiter than using the speaker wires. I also screwed up the camrea when the solder pulled the little gold strip off when I was putting the camera back together and it pushed the wires too hard. I slept on it and had it fixed in about twenty minutes the next morning.
