Post by: huntnnw on April 12, 2022, 10:23:02 PM

Was able to retrieve a camera that was buried all winter. I still have 1 in Idaho thatís probably under snow still and wonít get to it until July when road clears.

I bought 4 of these Wildview 12mp 2 years ago and none have had a single issue. 2 of them probably have 100K to 200k pics. This camera hung from June to early April and was still taking pics. $35 and cannot complain. 

What is odd with this cam pull was not a single bear! might be a first for me running cams in bear country. there is a ton of bears on this mountain and I had several prior to july 19th

The only pic I got of this buck. Iíve had a camera here for 2 summers. First time I left it all winter. Itís peaked my interest . Iím going to invest some time into finding his home this summer and see what he turns into this year he looks to have promise as a buck Iíd target this fall. Be a lot of work for this one as itís uphill 3-5 miles to look for him.

2nd picture I hunted that buck 2 years ago and was never seen again after sept 9th. He looks very similar to the buck on cam this past November.Nobody was hunting him in September as there is only 1 way in. Ran cams over 5 miles that fall and found every buck I had on camera but him. I think a cat got him as I had one on cam several times and ran into it.

Is that the loose stuff or the 50# block??  If loose, do you bury it or just dump on the ground?

Loose is the best option in my opinion.  With blocks the elk, moose and bears will roll the block away and it will no longer be in front of your camera.  With the loose salt the animals step on it and pound it into the ground making a great mineral lick for years to come.  I have some that started as flat ground and are now 3-4' deep.

All I use is loose and dump on ground . More rain it will leach more of it into the ground and keep them returning longer on less salt.

Yes on the loose form, faster for them to get what they need and easy to add other things if needed

I want to watch him grow toooo!
Please share when possible,pretty please.
I got 6 cams out now,three more to go and I'm done with it for the year.
May have went over board with no spring bear season.
Then when I check them,if there is no buck on any of my cams ,it's getting moved again.
Cause I got plenty of potential spots,not enough cams.

Weíve sat 3 evenings so far, picture of that black one in daylight came in minutes after we left to check another bait. Then we came back at sat there. Checked cam last night and that bear was there . :chuckle:

Wonít sit for quite awhile now. Headed springer fishing Thursday and wonít hunt til June 2. June is probably the best month for spring season.

Made it to a new cam I placed last month. Nothing of any real size to get me exited over for whitetails. One looks to be a little older with good bases and brows , but top doesnít have a great start. Lotta 1-2 yr olds.

That one doesn't look bad,better than the cam I checked the other day. He'll grow up to be a shooter.

Shooter to many , but highly unlikely for me. Bucks that are 150Ē plus have considerable amount of antler right now

The 5 with tall brows I found a old scouting pic of him 2 years ago. He looked like a nice 2 yr old with tons of potential . He hasnt really taken off like I expected, but maybe if he lives another year he could get bigger. Im pretty positive hes 4 this year.

Made it into my Idaho spot. This cam ran since last October. 4K pics. These cheap $30 cameras have been impressive. 3rd year now running them and have had no issues. This cam was buried under snow all winter and was still taking pics when I arrived yesterday. Batteries were still good so I left them in. Just regular Duracells .

Amazes me the elk move in here with the snow so deep. That cam is about 65Ē above the ground

No these are not coyotes as some member on here wanted to argue.  :rolleyes:  Iíve watched this pack for 4 years now. None of them are different color they all look the same. They average 9 adults every year and some years have up to 6 puppies. I have heard them many of times, laid eyes on them 4 times. Yet unfortunately can never get a shot. Has 1 at 470 and it just disappeared, had 1 chase a deer by me archery elk hunting at 150 yards, last year had the whole pack laying on hill at 1,082 and was way to windy to even attempt a shot. Saw eyes in the dark on a hike out. The wolf on the far right in last  pic I think is the alpha male heís substantially larger than the rest of day 20 lbs on all of them.

Unfortunately this spot once it snows you would be better off being helicoptered in  :chuckle:

These wolves follow the game down which could be 20 mi away.

Next set of pics are kinda a Timelapse of snow melt. First pic was the last pic I got in 2021 and dunno why it triggered. The next pic was in may. One thing Iíve noticed doing this over the years is once I start seeing chipmunks and birds the game shows up at the same time.

Title: Re: Huntnnw trail cam pics 2022
Post by: huntnnw on July 25, 2022, 05:58:56 PM
I havenít really looked and tried to really score him, but a rough guess is 140. Heís my target this year. Heís 7 + now

Post by: buckfvr on July 26, 2022, 09:55:58 AM
Incrementally, 140, 150, 160, etc., on and on, a lower percentage of bucks make each class as according to a few of the whitetail pubs (like QDMA), your average, typical whitetail buck seldom exceeds 130 inches with many not even getting there.  Theres a good number of matures out there that sit right at 125ish.  A 130, 135 buck on the hoof is always impressive.

Mature is the key word, score being secondary imho.

Ive got a 6 1/2 yr old that didnt even get to 130 but he was 21 wide, 22in mains, short points, huge fat body delicious buck, layers and layers of fat.
Title: Re: Huntnnw trail cam pics 2022
Post by: huntnnw on July 26, 2022, 04:18:15 PM
Yup! Most people donít realize how many whitetail bucks will never exceed 130 itís a lot! Thereís almost a perfect storm to have a 160 plus whitetail . Starts that it has to have the genetics to grow that, then it needs to get to 5 plus years old which is super tough with hunting and predators .
Title: Re: Huntnnw trail cam pics 2022
Post by: Timberstalker on July 26, 2022, 04:23:18 PM
Everyone always says "That was a 170" whitetail!  Yeah, take another bong hit.

Thanks again for sharing these pics, they are awesome.

That buck pictured above has almost not changed a single bit in 3 consecutive seasons. It appears this year that he seems to added some mass on his beams, but some tines could be slightly shorter.

Iíve had quite a few like that over the years. I have killed a few of them as well. I remember a time when I used believe that every buck could eventually grow to 150Ē if he could just live to maturity. It took 100ís of thousands of trail cam pics over 10-15 years before I realized deer are like dudes in that respectÖsome win the genetic lottery and get to the NFL but most donít.  :chuckle:

trace salt from north 40 or tractor supply
Is that the loose stuff or the 50# block??  If loose, do you bury it or just dump on the ground?
Loose is the best option in my opinion.  With blocks the elk, moose and bears will roll the block away and it will no longer be in front of your camera.  With the loose salt the animals step on it and pound it into the ground making a great mineral lick for years to come.  I have some that started as flat ground and are now 3-4' deep.


How much of a #50 bag do you initially put down when setting up a camera?

This buck is kinda a ghost, heís walked by this camera twice in 45 days. Never hit another camera to the east about 1/2 mi. Iíve tried glassing him up in crp. Heís got a forked brow on one side and appears to have a extras off bases and almost palmated on g2

That's the hard part saying you will pass and just hope no one else will shoot them, they will survive the predators and also survive the winter.   Worst thing about running trail cams is the decisions.

very few get to hunt these deer, maybe 1 other guy and lots of property around them thats off limits. Winter is almost a non factor for them, predators are pretty limited also. There is a cat in the area, but yet to see him in this area and seems to be staying higher up on the mt

its always a risk that one takes, but to kill a 170 buck you cant kill them when they are 140. Its worked more times then not for me over the last 20 years passing a buck or just not hunting them. I can only recall about 4-5 bucks that I thought had super potential that I knew were killed by hunters or just never showed the next year.

Sounds like it's a good spot then.  I hope you get the big guy this year and the others keep growing for future years
