Trail cams are a huge help in helping you identify a potential target.
And not only trophey targets. It can help you monitor the health and size of your deer herd, give you a idea of what your fawn recruitment rates are, and help you set realistic goals for hunting in your area.
It makes it much easy to hunt for a big deer when you know a bid deer is passing through every so often. Trail cameras are to hunting what air conditioners are to cars. You can make do without one..........but who really wants to ?
