My First Trail Cam Pics!!!

Recommended Posts

David Frank

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.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
