Photos from our Plots
Every year we have tons of left over photos, either we took ourselves or photos taken by our Moultrie Trail Cameras. We decided to pick out a bunch and share them with you. Enjoy.
I was anxious to see my 2nd year result. It was good right from the start.
One of the most amazing trail camera photos was taken in February in our standing beans. There are 145 deer in this photo.
My screening strategy worked, 30 rows of corn and 12' of Egyptian wheat provided security against the neighbor's border.
We had several trophy bucks appear in November.
This young buck was one of 45 that we would not consider a shooter.
This photo was taken an hour before I would kill my first PY buck from my property. A summit stand overlooking my brassica field.
Deer cleaned up every cob of our standing corn. By Christmas the entire cornfield was consumed.
Baiting is legal in Ohio, and I utilized two feeders in my strategy. I never hunt feeders, but they are great for taken inventory during the season.
This buck was all over my ground during peak breeding. I hope he put babies in all my does!
With so much food, even this exceptional stand of clover was underutilized.
Here's the same deer's right shed from 2020, and 2021. They are identical in configuration but look at the jump in size from a 2.5 to a 3.5!
This buck was ancient, I'm guessing around 8.5 or older. He was arthritic and beat up. I had him under my blind twice and had I not shot a PY buck in November, he would have been on my late season list.
Here's a nice shot overlooking my kill plot funnel design. It worked well.
My son Matt took this photo with his drone in February so we could count the entire field. We got to 247.
This shed haul was made in 3 hours in my standing bean field. By the end of the season I had found 24 sheds on my 130 acres. Outstanding.
