Back In The Hill Country – Game Cam Pictures

February 8, 2012

First of all, apologies for letting the last two days slip by without a post.  I made the drive back down to my new Hill Country haven, and the first two days were a blur of busy activity.  There’s so much to do down here with getting the place set up to for us to live… not to mention for the horses.  I’m enjoying the work, if it weren’t for this pesky thing they call a “day job.”

While I was gone, I left my cameras running over what was left of my corn piles.  There’s a pretty good bit of whitetail activity over here.  On the last trip, all I captured were some does.  It looks like the guys came out of the woodwork after I pulled out, though.  Here are a few bucks that have come down off the ridge to feed.

Just a youngster, but I was glad to see antlers.


Another youngster... or maybe the same one.

Now we're getting somewhere. Still young and spindly, but promising for the near future.

This may be the same one from the daytime picture, but he's looking healthy.

This isn't a great picture, but check out the tine length on this guy!

    Congratulations on on the great footage, Phillip. It’s nice to see multiple bucks on a parcel that size. Looks like you have a good thing going on down there.

    Thanks, Neil. I’ve got a lot of work to do, but once I get regular food and water going here, I have a feeling it’s gonna be pretty sweet. Most of the properties around me are just sort of sitting, and with the drought there’s not a lot going on. I should be able to get a good program happening… especially if I can convince the next-door neighbor to sell me his parcel.

    I just noticed that these pics have different places. How many cameras do you use?

    Hey, Dan.

    I’m running two cameras right now. One stays at the feeder, and the other is near my stand right now. Planning to open up a couple more stands soon, but I can’t seem to stay home long enough to get at it.
