I'd most likely Shi% myself if I had any one of those Bucks walk out in front of me!

The tail is really beginning to wag regarding this upcoming hunting season!

Yes please by all means any who have them share your trail pics! Thanks!

my camera is working again

08-17-2006, 03:48 PM
I love seeing these pics, I'm assuming it's a digital camera. And for the people like me that havn't invested in one yet, what do you recomend?

08-17-2006, 04:28 PM
Do you think he will be ready by deer season? ---- :lol: I love veal, little goat meat, and bambi backstraps AKA button bucks. ------ rattrapper

My camera is a home brew . I bought it from another guy from a diffrent forum a few years ago . Started having problems with it this summer . So I repaired it my self bought a new sensor board for it and done the work my self . The camera itself is a Sony p41. ...
4 mega pix . . approximate cost to build your own is $200 . and you can use the camera by itself when not in the game cam .
heres a link to a site for building your own
There are some guys on that site that sell their creations . they look alot better than this one too .I dont think any comercial cameras even compair for the money

08-18-2006, 12:09 PM
Neat Treerat, thanks for sharing the info. Treestandtimmy might be better at shooting pics than he is at shootin' deer! :lol:

08-27-2006, 09:35 AM
I would like sneak in on the back side of treerats hunting turf, or am I the only one out there that gets those Carnal Deer Hunting thoughts when they see those trail cam photo's.---------- 8)

08-27-2006, 09:57 AM

Yeah last Sunday nite about midnight thirty Ma called me over to "chase" a goodly sized black bear outta her yard. Turns out it was TWO bears, a Mamma and a "cub".......it was a vewy, vewy interesting experience.

Andover huh? Ever run into a feller out that way that goes by the name of Denny Shay? He's a well know local out that way.......heck of a gunsmith.

I'm game for shootin' anytime......................................

08-28-2006, 02:08 PM
The hunting blood is starting to pulse in my veins! Starting to get fished out. Can't wait to start huntin somthin!

I would also love to see more of those trail pics Treerat!

Do you just set the cam up on a trail, or do you put out some attractant too? With my luck I'll get one and get pictures of a bunch of Amish!

08-30-2006, 09:34 AM
Yes I sit the camera on trails . Some people bait the area in front of their cameras .I dont like to do that . I want to catch deer in their natural movements .I have used curiosity scent a few years ago . it works ok . I have not got an amish yet . and yes theres alot around . Treestand timmy .I have an older 35mm trail cam laying around I would sell you cheap if your interrested .

08-30-2006, 12:30 PM
Thanks for the offer, but I think i am going to get a digital. I like instant gratification. Unless somehow I can convert the 35mm one you have and I can put one of my regular digital cameras in the case? but that sounds like too much work, probably better off just pulling the trigger on a new one.

08-31-2006, 09:53 AM
Yes thats why the 35mm is just sitting around .Digital is the way to go . What kind of digital camera do you have ? Most home brew trail cams use sonys or Olympus .
All I got on my cam this week were doe pics .

08-31-2006, 07:29 PM
I have a Kodak easyshare, but how does the motion sensor work?

09-01-2006, 09:17 AM
It works on the same way motion lights works . It senses heat and motion . then it turns the camera on and then a few seconds shutters the camera .. Then depending on the control board((sensor) settings . will either wait to take another aproximately 5-10 nseconds upto 1minute . depends on how you set it up . . I am not a real expert on this stuff . You can learn alot more from the "Experts" on this link . go to Home made trail cameras section .
Like I said before some of the guys on that site make their own to sell ..Not Me yet.I may try building a few this winter

09-01-2006, 04:48 PM
I got 30 pics this time .most were several pics of the same deer .Cam positioned beside an apple tree . Heres a few of them

09-02-2006, 09:23 AM
Those pics are cool as the other side of the pillow, did you see the cuddyback that they have advertised that does day or night pics or video? That would be awesome to get see.

09-02-2006, 10:31 AM
A guy over on hunting pa has one . He is not happy with it .Heres the link to that post

09-02-2006, 10:36 AM
Heres a link to a site that reviews commercial cameras
If I was looking for one I would start by looking at this site

09-07-2006, 04:23 PM

09-21-2006, 03:46 PM
hey grizz why no new pics? you have to get on these guys. i need something to look at to get excited about here at work. seeing as you are not here real often anymore to tell me stories.

09-21-2006, 08:00 PM
Sorry just not getting any buck pictures . heres some of my newer pics

carl milks
09-21-2006, 09:27 PM
I'm brand new at this- a buddy loaned me his xtra cam, it's a StealthCam, it does OK, we've got some pretty good pics so far, but they look a bit "fuzzy", I see these posted here from digital are real clear, and since the prices on them are coming down, maybe Santa might bring me one. It almost seems like "lazy hunting"!!! I enjoyed scouting the right area to set it up and then to see waht's coming in- this is a whole new hobby!!

09-21-2006, 10:05 PM
that first pictures, the lighting is great!

In the second one, it looks like there are 2 deer. One in the background.

09-22-2006, 06:18 AM
Thanks for the pics treerat, without getting too specific where are you getting your pictures? ANF?, private land?, what county?

09-22-2006, 09:16 AM
Its private ground in northern Potter county . Agricultural area near corn fields .Yes commercial cams prices are coming down . I would still recomend one of the home made ones . check the links earlier in this post . .Fisher mom yes theres another deer in that picture . I put a stand in that area yesterday . The deer are coming through at 8:30am and 4:30pm . And the freezer is pretty empty :D Come on sept 30th

09-22-2006, 09:58 AM
heres another pic .
and heres one from last year

09-22-2006, 04:18 PM
You outa see the photo's of the buck I saw today. My insurance guy has them on his computer. This buck was photographed on the next street over from my house. I will get them to send them to me so I can post it. He is huge and living in Jamestown. At least a 20 inch inside. His tines must be at least 11 inch on the longest ones. I can count 6 on one side. --------- rattrapper

09-25-2006, 02:11 PM
A guy I work with was telling me about a huge buck that was seen behind persell middle school in j-town. He said it was a monster, and I believe it, I've seen a giant buck a few times creeping around bergman park which is right in the same area.Always early in the morning when I'm on my way hunting(of course). :roll:

09-25-2006, 05:45 PM
That's the same buck. I live right near Persell School.---My Insurance guys, Carlson and Cusimano Ins. has the pictures on the computer. I might try leaving my garage door open and try to catch him. :lol:

09-25-2006, 10:18 PM
here are some more pics from northern potter about 2 miles from treerats.
No pics outta velvet cuzz the brand new camera died after just 3 weeks so it is back to moultrie getting fixed.

09-26-2006, 12:54 AM

Still awesome pictures to see.

I gotta git me one of them thar camera thingies!!!!! very cool!

09-27-2006, 09:10 AM
Nice pics Tj .Hope you get your camera back soon . Gotta go check mine today .I set it up across the road from the farm .

09-27-2006, 05:38 PM

See if they will send them to you, and post them here, I'm dying to see this deer.

09-27-2006, 07:43 PM
got the scoop on this buck from a co-worker and if you are gonna see this buck, it will have to be pictures because he was hit and killed last week at the corner of Baker and Orr St.

09-28-2006, 11:18 AM
Do you know what they did with the mount? I hope whoever saw it saved the rack at least. Unless someone started a rumor that it got smoked by a car so they can go in after it with a bow and have everyone believe he's dead.
