Title: Scouting pics
Post by: jspencer on August 06, 2018, 05:03:35 PM
Here are some pictures from scouting this year.  I'll check my trail cameras in a couple weeks and add those.  Most of these images are from video that I took so they are not the best.  Some were 50 yards away (bumped into they hiking into look at a water hole) to as far as a mile away.

Some nice bulls there. Can't wait to see the trail cam pics. Looks like you are going to have a good season.

I hope it's a good season.  I drew 1 of 25 archery tags in this unit and I'm trying to make sure I do my due diligence and get a good one.  So far I've only seen 1 cow, which makes me a little nervous.  The unit has a lot of private which makes access to public a little tough, but nothing that can't be overcome with a little work.  There are several antlerless hunts going on from the 1st of August through the opening of the archery season.  One is on public land and then one on private land only, so hopefully they will get pushed off the private onto public with big guys in tow.

Pictures from this weekend.  9 more days till the season opens for me.


This guy is hard to tell how big he is with the yellow grass and white tips on his antlers.

The beam length is certainly impressive! Best of luck on the hunt  :upthumb:

Well the good news is that you've got a lot of action in that area. The bad news is it was a long time ago  :lol: Hopefully you have an idea of what the dates really are on the camera?

Nice pics. I like pic 305. it is like he is looking at the camera saying " What are you looking at >:("

I forgot to set the date and time when I hung it  :( .  It was up from August 7th 2018 through September 18th when I took it down.  Even though my season is over I'd love to go put a camera or two back up on the main travel corridor that they use from the public to private.  I'd love to get some pictures of some of the big ones.

It's a good one.  Not sure if he's looking at something or what, but I have several that he is doing the same thing in.

Just my guess but that looks more like a smell than a look since his nose would be down with his eyes on the location of the camera...

Could be an exit precaution.
Sniffing the thermals prior to leaving the hole in the direction.

I believe the pictures on this post were lost when we migrated forums a few years back. It happened on a handful of different threads.
