Good to know - the only camera I had up is about 50 yards into some thick woods, but I have it set up on a pattern the deer use coming from the thickest part of the woods. I'm thinking they are either hunkered down or hanging out near some of the newly cut fields in the area. I put up another camera on a main trail to my field to see if they changed their patterns.

KV - i have a couple of cameras in the woods (only 150 yards off of field, but it's pretty wet) and all summer had bucks and does frequently using the travel corridors they are over. The past 2 weeks i haven't had anything.. 1-2 does maybe a week.. i'm thinking the bugs are to blame.. our field cameras are still taking about 300 pics a week.

Where are your cameras?  Deep in the woods?  

Early this spring when it was wet and the mosquitoes and flies were bad, I had a bachelor group of 5 bucks (including the guy pictured) bedding out in the middle of a soy been field, right in the dirt (not planted at that point).  They would be out there all times of the day just laying in the dirt.  I could only assume it was due to how bad the bugs were.  I think they are worse now.  I wouldn't be surprised if the deer are hanging in the fields, and bedding there trying to get some relief from the bugs.  It has been dry now recently, but we desperately need a couple hard frosts.

That, and depending on where you are, actual flooding could have altered travel routes.

Anyone notice a drop in deer movement this past week with the heat? Was averaging 400-600 pictures a week since I put my cameras out in June and this past week that dropped down to 120 a week and not a single buck. Hoping it's just the weather, cool temps coming up will hopefully get them moving again.

Looks like the same buck. Cameras are approx 3 miles apart

Smokin-


I agree with the 135-140 comment. He is a nice buck but the 155-160 comment is way out of the ballpark. Most deer lose about 25% of what they look like in velvet once they are hard horn. The palmation wont really add any extra inches on his right side because thats a common base point or a forked tine depending on how you look at it so you wouldnt take a mass measurement there.

Super solid deer. Im shooting all day long if he walks in. I pretty much only hunt public and would rather hunt 150+ deer but some years I just cant find them. Anything over 135 is a heck of a nice buck and a buck of a lifetime for 80% of hunters.
