Look who's trolling this site again!     :hello:  PD?  Is that really you????
Archery BT book?  Cameron Hanes' book is by far the best.    Here's a vid.  (This guy's testosterone levels must be in the 90th percentile.)
 


Here's a link to the book on Amazon - It appears to be out of print.  I'd keep Googling it to find a better price.  Ten bucks is about right.

Owner if I can find those in audiobook form that way I can put to them while sitting in a blind or tree stand. I'll be sure to get a flat brim and snort mountain ops beforehand too. Picking up my bow today with new strings. Speaking to the challenge part of it I live on 5 acres of the woods in the north part of 407. I set up a tree stand on a game trail  and put a mineral lick nearby. Will be sitting on that every morning before work.
Fingers crossed
NO! You may not drive my truck.

If you want to kill a blacktail with your bow that is probably the best approach.  You need to be able to hit an area regularly and consitently to be succesful.  For most people that will be someplace pretty close to home. In my experience that higher the elevation the less consistent a bucks habits will be and much lower overall deer density.  A lot of lowland blacktails will frequent some of the same trails and grades semi-regularly.  A lot of the higher elevation bucks I have gotten on cam only pass a game camera once or twice in an entire season.  It makes sitting and waiting a really low odds option.  The bucks you see at night will be moving more during the day during late archery (assuming your hunting 407)

Not much argument from me on that.  skagitsteel is a master of big Blactail, (though I find that I have the same experience with some nice lowland bucks showing just once or twice in a season despite an array of cams strategically placed).  I'm sure many of us have seen some massive bucks show up on cam that have not been captured for two or more years, yet there they are again.  In my mind, it is a dominant buck trait -  Stay hidden and stay alive.  It works well for the genetically blessed....

Well I swapped SD cards from one camera that's been soaking for 8 weeks. It filled up about a week ago. So 8-15 is the last video I have of a group of deer. 1 wide 3x3 and another irregular 3x2 ish one side is wide and the other is disformed accompanied by a doe. Traffic is  sporadic on the trail with no consistent pattern. Hoping they will be there labor day.

"....Traffic is  sporadic on the trail with no consistent pattern. Hoping they will be there labor day."

Typical BT behavior.  Hope is always good 'cause you can't really pattern them.  It's a crap shoot at best when you're hunting archery, but if they're still in velvet, the odds are decent that you'll find them out in daylight in the AM.  I've never seen a buck in Sept. after about 10:00 AM, which makes me think you have to go in and hunt them in their beds in the afternoons.  Not my strong suit at all. 

Good luck - shoot straight!

They say blacktail can live there whole life in a square mile. I think the reason we get bucks on cam once then don’t see them again for years is because your cam isn’t in there bedroom. Your just catching a glimpse of them venturing out one night. If your cam was in there bedrooms you would probably get daily pics. Imo. Even big bucks feed during the day they just are doing it where it’s safe.

Placing cams in their bedroom is an invasion of privacy.

I’ve got a big blacktail buck who I see on my 8 acres nearly every day without looking too hard.  He doesn’t seem to move much.   I was mowing the lawn on Saturday morning and saw him shining up his head gear on a young cedar tree.  He was completely slicked off.
