The wonder of a Game (or Trail) Camera is that you do not have to be present to get a nice picture. The December 20, 2016 photo below taken at 4:42 pm is an example. (This camera cost about $150. I liked it so well I purchased two more. They don’t work as well and often refuse to flash at night, giving black pictures.) The buck is the one I call Perfect Rack. He has returned for five years.
The fellow below I photographed for the first time Dec. 2, 2016. He disappeared until Jan. 3. I identify him as a 5X5 with four spikes, two at the base of each antler. Everything about the antlers is unusual, yet everything is in perfect balance. Without the Game Camera I would not know of its existence as I have never seen it with my own eyes–as of yet. (The snowfall produced .27 inches of moisture.)
