From Trail Cams to Truck Beds [PICS]

Here’s all the proof you need that scouting with trail cams really pays off.

Days Game

I keep several trail cams up on the properties that I hunt year around. I love being able to watch the antler growth from start to finish and use the cameras to completely understand the deer movement all over my area. You don’t really need to do a full year’s worth of scouting but several months before the opener is probably a solid idea to make sure your trail cams are out.

These photos show the steps these hunters took from taking their deer from their trail cams to their truck beds as the season opened in their neck of the woods.

Click through this slideshow to see photos of bucks on trail cams followed by photos of hunters with those bucks on the ground.

Here’s a good looking buck

How rare is it to get a piebald on a trail cam?

WildGame Innovations

Tim Weldon was the lucky guy here.

WildGame Innovations

“Took this rare piebald buck in Sabine Parish. Let him walk last season as 6-pt and was blessed with another encounter this year.”

I don’t think I would let this guy pass

WildGame Innovations

Edward Samson couldn’t let him pass either

WildGame Innovations

“10-point, little help from the Buck Bomb to bring him in close! 195#, New Hampshire”

Big one in the dark
