If you couldn’t run trail cams. Do you believe you would have the same success in the field. We honestly believe that it would change the entire way we scout, access property and hunt.
I asked this question on our Twitter @WhitetailLegacy. Here are some of our followers responses.
@homeynel writes -As much as I want to check the cams all the time, seeing deer that I won’t see hunting, but knowing if I was there I could have shot the deer. Gives me confidence in my setup. And running cams can get wives and kids involved in less pressured areas.
@one80_outdoors writes- Trail cameras have caused me to pass many deer that I would have happy to kill on the last week of the season! Once you see the dominant bucks in your area I choose to pass on other deer.
@FlatlandW writes-Not for me. I basically use them to see what deer are in a particular area. My success has come from scouting and a lot of luck. It also depends on how you measure success. I have killed more mature deer since I have been using cameras but i do not think I am successful for using them.
@Sean010201 writes- I think I would be. Took a season of on the ground tracking, with photos to back it to learn the property. Without those cameras I think I would of been in the ballpark for travel corridors, but time of travel would of been a crap shoot.
