From a long time bird watcher, I love pictures like that. Too many people just don't realize that hunters are nature lovers. Many of my bird watching friends seem a bit suprized to find out I'm a hunter. It gives me a wonderful opportunity to give them an understanding of our outdoor lifestyle.
Most of them believe that we just want to kill everything. Letting them know about the hunter's views regarding conservation and the preservation of wildlife and habitat has help to convert many of their opinions. Most of them still don't hunt, but they respect and support my right to do so.
More postings like yours on this hunting website will only help our cause.
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...
