I would too.
That's in SC? If so what part?
I hunt outside Salters in Williamsburg County and this is the biggest buck I've ever gotten on camera. Caught him on camera that one time, never saw him again. Very, very rare to see a mature buck on a corn pile during day light at my place
Worst part is I was planning on sitting that stand that morning, but decided to take my dad duck hunting instead.
Sorry for picture quality. I keep my cameras set on video, so it's hard to get a clear screen shot. Plus trail cams have come a long way since 2012.

We're in Spartanburg County. I showed those pics to a few friends last night. We all agreed if this young man manages to get that buck, he will spend the rest of his life trying to find another. And he will never find another that size in this county or I dare say, in this State.

It'd definitely be hard to top that one.
If it were me I'd hang back, let him get comfortable in that area, keep track of him with the cameras, and get his home range mapped out while looking for any exploitable pattern to his movements. A buck like that will probably be almost completely nocturnal until the pre-rut starts to come in, so I'd bite my tongue and wait for the opportune time. That's probably one those bucks that busts you once, and is never seen again.
Good luck. Hope he kills him.

It seems hunters in SC or slowly actually learning how to hunt, and increasingly more hunters are learning the benefits of QDM. SC starts issuing buck tags next season as well. Hopefully the trend continues and we start seeing more deer of this caliber.

I've been contemplating getting a cam for the backyard. We feed a lot of the critters and I'm curious who's eating what. Anyone care to give a recommendation? Wouldn't need to be anything long distance as our backyard is pretty small but I would like night pictures.

Moultries are good. The main thing you're looking for is "invisible flash". With those cams, the infrared lights don't glow and alert your subjects.

Well I thought I would add to this thread. It`s been awhile. These are a few critters that keep dumpster diving in our community dumpster.

Got a trail cam for Christmas. I wanted it to track backyard critters and perhaps some security for my place at lake.

I have a question about camera placement. My first attempt was on a pole at about 5' off ground. Camera activated but all I got photos of were the trees. I think it must have been placed too high. I lowered camera a bit and did get some images but that were still high and too close.

Any tips on placement? Looking at the pictures here it looks as if cameras are close to ground level.

I place mine about a foot or two off the ground.

I put mine about 2 1/2 to 3' off the ground. I wish there was away to avoid the squirrel pics. Lol.

Here's a pic from September.....and a second pic from November. Not mine, but from a property I manage. Unfortunately, or fortunately, however you see it....the deer was trail cammed several times in Aug, Sept, and Oct....as well as last year, but the young man hunting him did not offer the killing shot. He was taken about 1000 yards from where the camera was by a fellow that did know he existed until he showed up under his stand in November. Very nice buck!!! We have taken several other great bucks this year, but nothing like this guy! One large ten eluded me right up to the last day...saw several times, but never a shooting moment....next year maybe.
