Wow, great picks. I'm curious about how you knew where to place your camera? Was there water near by or was this just a feeding area you knew deer frequently visited? I ask because I know picking the right spot for a trail camera isn't always easy. In other words I'm looking for tips.
i don't have many tips. my camera is on my familys land, which i have i have watched deer for years now and i learned what they do all summer. so i guess it was easy for me cause there was only one tree, bush looking thing to put my camera on, on a path where i know they travel. this year i have been watching for good trails where they cross a fence and sticking a camera there, which has worked out pretty good too. i am going to take one on public land this year and try my luck.. i would think if you know they are around maybe a little salt lick infront of your camera will help get them closer... thats what i am going to try
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
