Nice!

Out of curiosity, do those cameras only work at night? I don't own a trail cam (yet), I'm guessing the infared beam gets washed out in the sunlight.

Is that right? Because if these deer are only coming by at night, you may want to consider a different setup. Please explain as I am just a dumb country boy at heart. Oops!

Dave, Unless these cameras are different, they should work during the day. You just have to be careful to how you set them up. They need to be aimed in a direction that won't see direct sunlight . The sunlight will activate the heat sensor.
I would say this is a case of nocturnal bucks.

Thanks for the info, redrider.

You should set up on the edge of that field in the afternoons this Fall. Was wondering, what part of Illinois are you in rayphillips?

What kind of camera is that? It seems to work well.
