The view from one of my shooting houses (with 4 deer)

Alec, this should look familiar to you

This is also where I killed the snake while clearing the ares for the right side green field. (And where I screwed my shoulder up while tracking wife's deer last season)

Yep, 3 mature does and a fawn. When I went today to swap the memory cards, and move the camera to my other shooting house I ran the doe and fawn off the right side (~11:00am today).

I was hoping I could convert the entire time lapse file into a video, but I haven't been able to yet :(

The doe on the right is ~30 yards and the 3 on the left are ~60-80 yards.

The reason I titled this thread the way I did, the game camera was locked to the front of the shooting house

edited because I figured out how to covert it to a video file

    You'll assuredly need a long range bullet for those shots!

    after looking at the time lapse from that field, wife's already claimed it for opening weekend

    So depending on how the other field is looking, may have results from 125 NBT @ slightly faster than "youth" velocities first.
    They're not as pretty as that one is currently :tissue:

    Well, the one I missed opening day last season actually came out 8-10 FEET in front of that shooting house. She got to ~15 yards and I tried to ease the rifle out, spooked her and she took off running straight away down what's the left side (was the only side last season) and I missed a running head shot

    Looking great Paul. Sun is in the right position and highlighting the target area.
    Seems like the only problem I can see is that she is going to be spoiled for choice!

    How is the other area looking?
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Not quite as lush and green as this one :(
    I'll head back up there later this week and see what the camera shows as far as activity goes

    Hope you get a deer or three. :up: Looks like a good setup, too!
