    On back side of my place theres couple acres i left wild. I dont hunt back there just left it as a little sanctuary i do have a camera up just to see whats passed thru. Its pretty thick and leads to small creek gives critters a safe spot. It was cool seeing the jake on cam this morning ive only had hens so far this year. The young buck is neat hope he learns fast its pretty tough sledding on surrounding land for the deer id like to see him mature couple years. MFDC3723-11.jpg MFDC3694-11.jpg MFDC37121.jpg

    Awesome.

    I'm a big sucker for trail camera photos, as most guys here can swear to. :)

    We have a couple of young bucks like the one you have.

    And I have one I got a photo of last week that's already a 9 point from the best that I can tell from the photos. Pretty gnarly rack on him too.

    If he hangs out long enough for deer season, by all intents and purposes, he may well be a 10 or maybe even a 12 pointer by rifle season.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but I get just as much excitement seeing trail camera pictures of what's in my woods than when I see them in person.

    I wholeheartedly agree. I put the trailcam invention up there with the battery power sawzall top ten invention list for me. I pretty much enjoy trailcamming ? If thats a word as much as hunting anymore. Not the adrenaline dump but ive killed my share over a lifetime so pulling the trigger isnt really necessary anymore. Dont het me wrong i still hunt but the cameras give me great enjoyment too.

    I'm the same way buddy.

    This top one is the one I expect will be between a 10-12 point come rifle season this November. He's already a 9 point and summer isn't even over yet.

    Very cool. I haven't gotten my cams out yet this year. I have one that isnt working correctly and need to replace it. I just have not had the time. But this is making me feel motivated.

    Those are very nice pics i like your buck. I had put in for Ky Elk tags for couple years but eventually lost interest it would sure be closure than New Mexico though. I camped near Frankfort Ky few years ago while visiting in Frankfort i was blown away near the water treatment plant were monster bucks just wandering around in yards and street corners i had alot of pictures but not sure if i can find them.

    I don't waste my time with elk tags.

    If you look back through previous tags, they were often given out as political favors.

    Sadly, the elk numbers have plummeted in recent years.

    poor management.

    The herds had grown a lot in the few short years after their reintroduction before they opened seasons.

    Then they got greedy and allowed them to be hunted far too heavily. Even gave several outdoors channels hosts to come in and hunt during off seasons just for the publicity from some of what I have heard.

    There were herds that had grown to 8, 10, even 12 strong in just a few short years, but now, they have began to move out of this area where they were being hunted so heavily for areas where the pressure isn't as high.

    I used to see them regularly. More often in the earlier spring than any other time, but I haven't gotten a single photo of any in almost 2 years now.
