Category Archives: White Tailed Deer

This is the first time that I have captured Coyote pups on my trail cam. There appeared to be five of them and the were around for a couple of days.

I am also starting to see quite a few White-tailed Deer bucks. Most of them just have nubs sticking up but this one has the start of a nice rack.

There was also one Wild Turkey that turned up.

We normally have a small herd of White-tailed Deer around. In recent weeks has increased in numbers to seven and the last few sighting nine. The seem to be watching for any sign of things growing in my garden. The particularly like the lettuce, peas, beans and beets.

 

I have three White-Tailed deer that seem to hang around together. When I woke up one morning they were sleeping at the edge of the yard in a nice sunny location. It was the same area that the Wild Turkeys liked to hang out during the winter.

 

 

Things haven’t changed much. White-tailed Deer are the most frequent visitors to my trail cam. The seem to be so curious and are constantly hanging around in front of the camera. Maybe they consider it a selfie camera.

The second most frequent visitors recently have been Raccoons.

A first time visitor to my camera was this . Apparently it is sticking around because several weeks after this picture was taken I saw it again in the same area. I was cutting brush when it landed nearby. A short time later it walked out into an open area and was soon followed by a maleĀ  who was dancing.

A couple of critters wandering around in the backyard.

 

It has been about two weeks since I last checked my trail camera. With spring nearing there has been a lot of activity. Most of it has been White-tailed Deer. They are really curious about the camera and seem to spend a lot of time looking at it. This results in a lot of useless photos. I’ve seen only one buck the in the last month.

 

I’ve had a fair number of Wild Turkeys posing for the camera.

In addition I’ve had a pair of Coyotes wandering past the camera. This is the first time I’ve seen a pair of Coyotes. There have also been the usual cast of characters, squirrels, Raccoons are now out and about, the neighbors cat has also been around.

 

 

The White-tailed deer were moving around in February probably because we had so many warm days. For some reason I captured quite a few photos of deer looking right into the camera. One one shot of a buck and this corresponds to what I’ve seen around the house. Lots of doe’s but no bucks.

The Wild Turkeys were moving around as well. I had a flock of 30 plus that I would see around the house. However this past week they seemed to have dissapeared. It might be because it is mating season.

A few squirrels were out running around.

The White-tailed Deer rut is on and I’ve been seeing a lot of deer wandering around the yard. Yesterday, I watched for over an hour as a the bucks and does ran across the yard.

 

I’ve been getting quite a few photos on my trail cam recently. Most of the activity relates to the White-tailed Deer rut that is going on now. A few shots to does running past the camera followed by a buck. Some nice shots of a very large buck that has been hanging around.

Some nice shots of the bucks including a couple of them fighting.

 

Early in the fall I had quite a few shots of Coyotes but they seemed to have dissapeared.

I had some nice captures on my trail camera the last time I checked it. This Fisher has been hanging around most of the summer and has been killing a lot of wildlife. Some of the hunters in the area are not too happy.

I’ve been seeing a few Coyotes on the trail camera and have been hearing them at night.

A few Wild Turkeys are around but I’ve not seen any large families. Maybe the Fisher is taking them.
