This is the first year since I started playing with cameras that no matter where I've had my sets I can't get a picture of any of our bigger bucks...and I know they're there. Frustrating.

Yes, it can be!

Strangely, this year we didn't get a serious shooter on camera until just at the start of peak breeding.

I've set up over mock scrapes and the real deals being worked heavily but no shooters...and I know they're there. I also haven't seen near the scraping I've seen in the past which indirectly may have something to do with it???

I watch several Deer come to a field outside my door regularly catching them on a camera that I have set up, it is strange how the biggest one avoids the camera every time. I watch him with binoculars and he refuses to walk in front of the camera.The other Bucks walk in front and I capture them and the huge buck takes a slightly different track. Im thinking about putting a second camera just a few yards away and see if I can catch him.
Some of these Deer know something aint right.

If your camera produces a visible flash at night (either a white flash or a red glow), deer WILL learn to walk just outside the trigger area of the camera. I've seen deer learn to do this many times.

I think they can avoid cams way better than we give them credit for. Way better
