:whiteflag: We never even caught a glimpse of the big boy this year. I have not gotten a daytime picture of him since August.

I SURE hope he sticks around and turns into a bruiser this coming year so we can go out in hopes of chasing a true trophy buck.

This is the most pictures I've ever got of what I consider a really nice buck. I've got about 5 videos and over 100 pictures. Its been fun watching him. I've got to give a lot of credit to my Scout Guard cameras for working well throughout the summer and fall too.

I'm going to get my cameras back out in the next week or so to see if I can find him post-gun season. I've never had any luck getting pictures of bucks late in the year though. I don't know what to look for besides a pile of golden nuggets, and we're still planning on hunting some at this point.

:stirpot: Well, right now, he's sleeping, eating, living on the other side of the river in the still standing 5 THOUSAND acre corn field over there. :hysterical:

So, hopefully they'll get that out before he loses his horns. :D We need some MAJOR freezing temps for them to get out there, because its never going to dry out at this point, just gonna have to freeze.

We've never found a shed on that property, so I'm really not planning on being able to find his. :whiteflag:

Once peak breading is over, they will hit the scrapes again, got some great pics last year over late season scrapes. Might give it a shot Parker.

:cheers: Will do. Do you just put the cameras back over the good scrapes from earlier and wait it out, or do you have to search for new scrapes and get your cam on it when you find it?

I find the scrapes that have been reopened and set a cam on them, usually good for about a week and a half of activity before they quit hitting them. After that it gets pretty tough until I fill the feeder after bow season. A real cold snap will put them back on the foodplots in December too.

:cheers: modeerhunter, I got my cameras back out. I put one of them on a scrape that is still active, and another one on a very heavy trail. I'll probably leave them alone for 2 weeks, maybe 3 and see what we come up with! :cheers:

That's exactly what I'm doing. Our place is nothing but timber, hay and pasture, but the bottom ground across the creek is full of corn and soybeans....some still standing. I had planned to put three trailcams out on scrapes near trails that lead to and from those crop fields into our timber. I hunted Wed morning and took the trail cams with me to put up but forgot to take my new batteries...:stickfight:. I'll get a chance maybe Saturday to go out and put up the cameras. I think I'll also hang drippers over each scrape to give deer additional reason to stop and sniff so I can get their pics. I've never hunted our family farm in the late season...usually hunt elsewhere, but this year I'm going to. Hope it pays off. I was getting pics of several really NICE bucks and I'd like to find out how many of them survived....my family only shot one of them...don't know about the neighbors.
