The Trail Camera Tells All…

I have been shed hunting a few times this year.  No big trips really, just a couple of hours here and there.  Despite my best efforts I have yet to snag some bone.  I can understand why I didn’t find anything on my last trip; after all a 600 acre fire is sure to mess with things.  What has really had me puzzled is that I haven’t pulled any sheds off of one local spot that I know holds some good bucks.  After checking my camera this weekend I had proof that one of my theories was indeed true.  Bucks are still holding onto their head-gear!  Out of the 5 bucks that I have on camera in the last couple of weeks, only one of them has dropped.  Here we are, heading into late March, and the majority of the bucks that I have seen are still holding on.  It looks like shed hunting will coincide with turkey hunting this year!

Still holding on

Speaking of turkey…

Turkey Time!

I had dozens and dozens of turkey on the camera.  It seems they really like the ridge top that I had this setup on, and I am pretty sure I know the path that they are taking to and from this spot.  I moved my camera to confirm their route, and hopefully I can pattern these bad boys before the season starts in just under a month.  I always feel like I am heading into turkey season ill-informed.  I never can seem to put much time together to scout these elusive birds, and the properties that I hunt them on can be downright tough.  My camera is a huge asset this time of year!

Turkey Time! Turkey Time!

    Sweet photos, Mark! Unreal that the bucks are still wearing their headgear. Those turkey shots are great. That is some great info for you right there.
