This short video sequence was taken in October
2009 in Saskatchewan on the first night after
we found a camping site and emptied the trailer of our camping gear. The camera was installed on a small scrape
found in a patch of wood (200’X200’) where we had chosen to install our camping
gear. The next day, to our big surprise,
we had an interesting visit during the night.
The first buck had the antler dimensions sought by some of my hunters,
which seemed promising. Since the scrape
was only at 35 yards
from our tents, we knew that this scrape would be deserted in favor of other
scrapes in the area. We never saw that
deer again in the area during the 35 day period that we spent hunting or on
game cameras installed on other scrapes.
He disappeared as soon as he appeared.
Conclusion : He probably did not like our camping site. Have a good day. Louis
