If you've followed along here on WhitetailDNA, I think by now you probably know that I love trail cameras. You could even go as far as calling it an addiction. Trail cameras have their place when it comes to deer hunting, no doubt. They are a tool that when used in the right way, can help your hunting efforts immensely. Over the course of the last few years, I had at some points been running close to thirty trail cameras. What I've found though is that in this case, more doesn't always equal better. I've learned a few things about trying to run too many trail cameras, and now this year, once I've got all my cameras up, I'll be running in the 10-15 range. Below I'll detail a few of the negatives that come with running too many trail cameras, and why if these are an issue for you, maybe it's time to downsize the fleet.
Summer is about many things, and among those is preparation for deer season. Before you know it, you'll be taking steps up a tree, ready with a bow in hand. It may seem like a little ways away right now, but summer usually tends to fly by, and all of a sudden it's deer season. With that said, today I wanted to go over why summer is so great, and touch on a few of the best things that go into summer and prepping for deer season.
As a kid, I always remember my dad and his yellow legal pad with his “To-Do List” penciled at the top. He's the hardest working person I know and he always has a plan. If anyone had the right to tell me my priorities were wrong, it was him. He may not admit it, but he gets stuff done, and it’s all because he has a plan.
This past weekend signaled the end of my shed hunting for the year as I took a last minute day trip out to North Dakota and was able to scoop up a couple antlers. Now that shed hunting is over, I wanted to take a look back at the last few months through some photos, and show you how my shed hunting went this year.
