In the deer woods one of the things I’m always looking for is a new place that has good buck and doe activity. Recently, I set up a SpyPoint trail camera to watch a heavily traveled trail in an area consisting mostly of cedar trees. We’ll call this place Secret Spot 6 7/8.
A few days after setting out the camera I switched out its SD card with a new one and and returned to the house to check the pictures.
It is still early and the bucks antlers are not shaped out yet. In the order of the pictures taken:
A young buck walks by. He has branched antlers.
The next picture was of a buck in velvet. His beginner antlers are more advanced. They have already curved so the width of his rack is now set.
Here he is at night.
Another young buck with his beginner velvet rack.
Here is our buck again, this time early in the morning. Notice there is always a doe along with him.
The last picture was the buck from the first picture.
And a doe passes by the SpyPoint as it comes by near the trail.
I will leave the camera at this spot for a few more days and then move it unless we get some more interesting buck pictures.
