Postby Deebz » Tue Oct 16, 2012 2:18 pm

Finally figured out how to get snapshots out of the video my trail cam took... what do you think age is on the wide 8?? if the double beam buck gets close I'm definitely shooting....

I would say the 8 is 3 years old.
I only hunt on days that end in ' Y '.

Interesting buck there Deebz. Good luck with that. ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Posted a vid of the 8 (actually 9 if you count the sticker behind his brow tines)... lets see if it works!

**It did work... anybody got a guess at age based on the video?

That buck was seriously checking the wind. Were you in the woods at that time?

Nowhere near the woods... directly behind he camera is a small incline covered with thick trees, and on top is a flat grassy area about 10 yards wide on the edge of hundreds of acres of crop fields... the grass grows up tall all along that treeline, and the farmer has all kinds of downed trees and old equipment pulled in here and there. It's a classic bedding area, so I'm guessing he was scent checking for does... I've been seeing a few fresh scrapes pop up, and I used Woods Walkers methods of "freshening" an old scrape near the beginnign of the vid. It's right below him when he poses with his chest out and head high... at that point he's 20 yards broadside to my treestand. He's actually standing in the exact same spot I shot my bow buck last season, just facing the other direction. The more I look at the width of his antlers, the more I think I just might let an arrow fly if I get a perfect shot opportunity...
