Monitoring Monster bucks

7 posts in this topic

Wouldn't it be neat if they could implant a deer with a device that you could monitor there where abouts on the internet. I think they could come up with a way to do that without being able to use that info for hunting purposes. Just use it for enjoyment and to see how close people really come to seeing the big boys. Any thoughts or additions to this post would be appreciated wink.gif

Great idea but the issue would be to get initally close enough to get the GPS device planted in the Big Boy.

Wait we are back at step one again...

ALREADY DONE!!!! Well almost... I dont know where you look it up. But Dr. Deer- James Kroll and some others have implated a camera on a wild bucks antlers. I dont think they tell us WERE it is but you can watch it ANYTIME on-line and its "real time" "live". Also there is sound on your computer for any vocalizations the deer make.

It looks pretty neat but I really dont know the details. Maybe someone else who knows more will post something. Try to search it??? wink.gif

I think I watched that on OLN but I thought it was on a game farm plus I thought it was a GPS device not a camera because the rack was worth $$ and they wanted the sheds.

Slimngrizzly is correct. They have a camera mounted on the head of a deer, not sure if its a buck or not. You can pull it up on your computer anytime and see what the deer is seeing, live. There is a cost though. I think its like $40 a year or something.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
