Advanced Trail Camera Tactics

It's not too late for big-buck inventory. Velvet shed is right around the corner, but the sooner you know which buck you'll be setting your sights on the better prepared you'll be!

I’m sure it goes without saying that successfully implementing trail cameras into your summer and fall scouting efforts takes strategy. But how much? What aspect of collecting data about your heard health and buck inventory often gets overlooked? One thing is for sure, if you disregard anything at this point in the game, it could cost you the buck of a lifetime once fall arrives.
