Ok, this is kind of a spur of the moment trip. I decided to go up to Indiana this weekend and place a camera until I get back up to bow hunt which starts 10/1 but it will probably be late October early November before im back. I know its hard to place a camera somewhere you've never been, but what would your goal be to place a camera you wont be able to touch one, possibly two months. The farm im hunting on has a big creek, 20 acre alfalfa field, soy beans, corn, and lots of hardwoods. I'll post an aerial.

Second question. I will have two other cameras that I will be putting out tomorrow and getting Monday as I leave. I bought a bag of Big&J BB2 to put in front of one in the edge of the soy bean field where I find the most sign. What would you do to try your best to get a picture of a mature buck in 3 days?! I know its a long shot, but hey why not try!?

Thanks for your input guys!!

That is going to be hard. Watch the bean field the first night and focus your cams around where the deer are. They usually do the same thing in the summer.

I'm in Central Indiana. Right now, they are simply moving around between the corn and beans. There doesn't seem to be a strong pattern yet here. I'm seeing deer regularly, but they seem to be utilizing different trails. Try to point the camera facing north down the boundary of the woods and crops. Should minimize the glare from the sun. The big thing is they seem to bed down IN the corn and beans, but are venturing into the woods some. Seems kind of weird this year. Its been a mild summer, so that could have something to do with it. Good luck! If you can be in the woods when the farmers are cutting and harvesting, it's game on...
