I shot this deer with a .270 at about 60 yards. I was very high up a pine tree which gave me a steep downward angle at the deer. I hit him between the shoulder blades, he dropped in his tracks.
One thing I forgot to mention in my previous post, this was a 3 1/2 yr. old buck that weighed 175 pounds. I know this deer is no trophy by modern standards, but seeing how he came off public hunting land,with no QDM in place, and no agriculture fams within 40 miles, I think he is a very nice buck.
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...
