With whitetail season a few short months away, deer freaks everywhere are breaking out their deer gear. One of the first things they reach for is their scouting cameras. Little do they know, they just may be making the biggest blunder of the season.
Scouting cameras are a great invention and many of us couldn’t hunt as well without them. But, unless used correctly, early season scouting with cameras can end your chances of taking a mature buck.
Big bucks hate pressure and they have a hard time knowing the difference between a hunter checking his trail cameras and a hunter trying to run an arrow through his ribs. Human pressure is human pressure and big bucks want nothing to do with it. Early season camera pressure can run the buck of your dreams clean into the next county.
