:thinking: I seem to remember Dr. Deer saying at a presentation he thought he could get a pretty decent look at deer on a property by using a camera over a pile of corn and cover a 100 acre area? I think that's what he said. Maybe deepwoodsgoathunter can remember better to confirm, or remember what he really said.
He didn't really mean seeing EVERY deer on the property though. I'm pretty sure he meant a decent idea of population, and bucks to does.
It was a lot larger number than what I would think it would be, but I don't put mine over bait either.
On his own place, he had 40ish cameras on 1,000 acres with no corn out on them. (one for every 25 acres) He was patterning deer movement, and what he had to show was simply AWESOME showing the lines of movement of specific bucks.
