No Off Season – Trail Camera Survey
I like to run trail cameras until all of the bucks have shed their antlers. This helps me monitor the herd health and also see what deer made it through the season. Sometimes I really get my hopes up because big deer show their faces during the post-season. Other times, I’m disappointed because I don’t see deer that I expect to. Either way, I always scout hard (and smart) once summer and early fall arrive to find a buck I want to hunt. After all, whitetails’ fall and winter ranges are generally different. So don’t get discouraged if you don’t see a quality deer during the post-season.
