Nope, that’s not the price of a hamburger at the new burger joint in town. And it’s not the price of the latest used camera I bought for a homebrewed camera trap – wish it was!
Nope, six bucks are what showed up at my favorite camera trap location. A few weeks ago when I checked the camera it was a big male black bear that stole the show as you can see here. This time it was the six white-tailed bucks that had their chance in front of the camera.
In a span of a bit more than two weeks in early July these are the six bucks that were photographed – in size places –
A spike buck –
A 4-point –
And a 5-point –
Still counting? A 6-p0int –
There was also a beautiful 10-point buck –
And then there was one photo showing the 10-point buck running away from the camera with another 10-point buck, mostly hidden in the shrubs, looking on. That second 10-point buck appeared in one and only one photo, this one -
But it wasn’t only bucks that were in front of the camera during that period. There was also a fawn –
And one of those bears –
What a spot for a camera trap!
