Just wondering. After the huge acorn crop, have the deer returned to feeders in your area? :up::down:
IS NIGHT TIME THE ONLY TIME YOUR SEEING THE BUCKS SHOW UP NOW ON YOUR GAME CAM ??I have been really bummed about not getting pictures at my feeder, but the last week they have been hitting it hard. In the past 2 nights, i've gotten almost 200 pics. Several big buck i hadnt seen before as well.
Yes. Night only. On the 27th, i had a huge 11pt, two 8pts, a 7pt, and a 6pt go by between 10pm-12am. I hadn't gotten any pictures of any bucks bigger than a 5pt all year long. They all came through after a group of 3 doe's had come through.IS NIGHT TIME THE ONLY TIME YOUR SEEING THE BUCKS SHOW UP NOW ON YOUR GAME CAM ??
DITTO + 1 they have a call out now thats makes the feeder sound...........:fit::fit:No, it doesnt take them long to get use to the noise from a feeder and I've actually watched feeders go off and within 10 minutes have deer under it feeding. Its just like a dinner bell to them.
JMO, The early one sounds good but the one right before dark should be knocked back to 3:00, That gives them the option to hit it early if they choose.... If not they will be trained to check it at dark or later. If it was me I would give them at least a 5 to 10 second run, but I don't know how many deer your feeding:head:I, too, have noticed deer coming to the sound of the feeders. Still a lot of acorns on the ground on our place. I filled the feeders last week end. Tell me what you think, please. Got them set for thirty minutes after sunrise and thirty before sunset. I set them for 3 seconds because of so many acorns still. Thought I would just throw out enough right now to keep them interested.
My feeders have been set for morning only for the entire season. I do put out rice bran topped with some c'mere deer spray on the top. They have demolished the rotten stump I put it in. Even starting to get some daytime pics of them. I am going up tomorrow to check a weeks worth of pics.I feed mornings only.... if you gonna eat at my place it is going to be in the daylight. As long as there is not to much pressure from hunting or dogs or whatever then I get daytime movement.
