I used to hunt up in WI when I was growing up and the biggest I ever shot in that area was a 12 pointer. There are some huge bucks up there if you have the patience to wait for them to come in range.
Any idea of what part of Three Lakes they were hunting?
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
