My First Trail Cam Pics!!!

24 posts in this topic

I would like to send out a special thanks to all of you who helped me get my first trail camera set up. I couldn't have done it without you. Here are the results!!! There were many more, but these are a couple of my favorites. I will be after the big buck with the kicker on his right side.

Yes.... all private. I would love to try a private land archery mule deer hunt out west some time, but around here I would rather not fight the crowds.

That was the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw him about a month ago while scouting. Now, seeing him out of velvet makes me want to hunt NOW!!! In SD, our archery opener is sept. 23rd. You can bet where I'll be that morning given that the wind is out of the right direction. I will be after this guy with exclusively archery equipment. He is bigger than any buck I have ever shot... archery or firearm!

Dave lives in North Eastern South Dakota.

I've seen several bucks in Rochester, MN recently and none are wearing any velvet anymore.

As Tyler stated, I live in NE SD. Tyler, if you don't think you can wait for the phone call on this one.. imagine how I feel. That bad boy is on my desktop full time. I just keep telling myself that no matter what, I have to wait for him... unless a bigger one shows up!

Once again, I would like to thank everyone who helped me get my camera set up.

I am not the most experienced at scoring deer. What do some of the more experienced hunters out there think this guy might score. I realize that without a full view of his width or entire right side it may be difficult, but i'm just looking for a round about score. Any possibility that he may make pope and young?

Thanks Again,

Dave

Well, assuming he is an 8 pt with that sticker on the right....

I have an 8pt that grossed 124.

Brow tines are nothing close to that deer. G2's and G3's look like they could be somewhat similar.

Spread appears that yours is outside ears possibly.

If I was forced to guess, I would say pushing towards mid 130's. Some different angles would help a lot.

Hopefully I will have a few different angles before the SD archery season starts on the 23rd. My best educated guess was around 130.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.
    • HugeHogChaser
      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?
