Trail Camera Pics

Recommended Posts

Very nice buck, there is just something about those big 8's that I like. However I will not discriminate and shoot any 9, 10, 11, 12's and up that I see.

Keep in mind people that not ALL cougars are huge! Some are infact some what small. its 100% with out a doubt a COUGAR.

Cougars and Bobcats have no such similar face features.

Nice work on the photoshop. I wonder if I should send these to the DNR or would it be a waste of time because this cougar is just passing through two years in a row at the same spot. What do you guys think? If Lou is online than he can just see them here.

Here's one in the wild for ya. These cats are stealth quiet in the woods. Saw a bobcat in the same area at sunset on the firearms opener from my climber. It walked within 30 yards on a dead silent evening and I never heard it make a sound. Had turkeys roost right by me, sure heard them. Saw a bobcat, had a big black bear trounce by, but only big buck sighting was a two second glimpse as it chased a doe with two other small bucks. 2009 was an interesting year. We'll see what 2010 brings.

I have 3 Scoutguards.

Overall I am pleased with them.

Had problems with 2 of them last year and sent them in for service.

Found out there are knock-offs out there and I had 1.

Be careful where you purchase them from.

Also, if you read the manual it says "not for outdoor use".

I thought this was quite odd but when I questioned this to customer service she was very illusive. They do not market them as specifically game cameras.

I do like the ease of use and picture quality.

Scoutgaurd and bushnell are made in the same plant, same pieces and parts different name and exterior. I really like my bushnell. I wanted a scoutgaurd tried to order one and they didnt have any and were not gonna get any for a couple months so I got the low down on the two and ordered mine. Great cameras

If it were me I'd take the first one that gives you a clean shot and hope the other one makes it to next year. That 2nd buck (3rd beam) might be a younger deer, he could be crazy big next year.

I agree with Bear. I'd shoot the first one and let that 2nd one pass. Definitely not mature yet. With that said, if that 2nd buck came by me and presented a clean shot, I'd have a hard time keeping the string in my hand. It's good to have options.

The second deer does seem younger. Its rack might not look the same next year if it was damaged in velvet. Has a chance to look normal next year and will lose alot of its character. Thats the risk you take, too young versus unique hard choice. Both look nice enough for most hunters. Good luck, it does seem when they loose their velvet the turn into a different animal. Start to wonder where they disappeared to.

I would shot either one of them. I suspect both are the same age probly 3.5yr olds. Granted either one will probly be even better next year, as they probly won't show full potential until another year or so. Unless you have alot of land and they are going to be safe it still would be a tough, but if its like alot of places i would shoot either one and hope the other makes it. Good luck.

They funny one may gross 140+ tough to tell and if the dates are right he still had some growing to do.

    • I had done it before when I was younger. Experience had taught me to pay someone this last time. It's a hot dirty dusty job up in the attic. Best suited for a small wiry guy.    It doesn't make a difference in deciding when to roof.
    • It works just like the use of egg to clarify consomme.   The egg coagulates and sinks, taking any small particles with it leaving nice clear coffee.     It was from the days before filters or even percolators.    
    • The Blaine event is small and to the point.  All of the main players are there.  The parking lot seemed full, but the turnover of folks leaving made it a non-issue for us.     The St Paul show this weekend coincidenced with the Disney on Ice shows at the X and something going on at the Children's Museum.  Booth ramps on the river side of Kellogg were full before the VIP, 11am doors opened.  We ended up parking 6 blocks away in a hotel ramp.  We were yelled at by a cute, mid-40s aged gal with f-in heimers about our inability to "read something," probably the crosswalk lights.  There were no cars around, so we proceeded to cross.  She was doing at 45 coming at us......   The VIP ticket line was short.  It took longer to walk around to the back ticket booth then to purchase.  However, the line to gain entrance was a block long, wrapped all the way to the front skyway,  1,000 or so deep.  It went pretty fast though.  Odd was the security and metal detectors to enter.  One security guy told us to take our out guns and knifes in addition to keys, phones, vap sticks, and lighters.  I have not been to the show in 3 or so years.  Wow how things have changed.     The show was good.  Ran into a lot of personalities and what not.  We were out for lunch at 1pm and back around 2, when the isles started filling up.    
    • 😆😆 naw...........i was making egg coffee longgggggggggg before i knew Del and his meat boiling operation!!!!!🤫
    • It just has settled over the years. Otherwise the roof is dry. We also did some remodeling and lost some insulation I suppose doing that. But the last time the cellulose insulation was blown in was 1994. Going up there it has definitely settled over the years   Once we close it up in 1994 I never had a reason to go up there again
    • your exactly right, thats kinda what it looks like. but dont knock it till ya try it.
    • I have rented a machine from the save big money store. I ran the hose in the attic while the wife fed the hopper. Was very easy job to do ourselves. But we did it for new construction in a garage attic. Only downside was the machine was super heavy so I would account for that.    I dont think the order of that vs your roof matters unless your roof leaks? Are you losing insulation or is it just settling? Do you have soffit baffles installed?
    • I think the part smurfy left out is the french press.   https://www.thespruceeats.com/egg-coffee-2952648   The only place I have had egg coffee is at some lutheran church's diner at the state fair.  It's a pretty decent cup of coffee.
    • Coffee grounds boiled egg?  You been reading to many of Del's Sous Vide posts! 🤢🤮 😆
    • Maybe I'm missing something, but doesn't the egg cook in the boiling water?  I'm picturing coffee with bunch of floating bits of scrambled eggs floating at the top.
