Well I thought this post would bring some pictures of nice bucks, bears and boars....   :-\.  Maybe I worded it poorly.  Folks further north must not call them “game cameras”.  Oh well.  Stand by and I will be posting more critters for your viewing pleasure.  ;D

Sorry, my two trail cameras both suddenly mysteriously died. Along with several bucks that the buzzards found. Seems I may have a poacher problem again. A couple of my neighbors had the same problem.

I have a couple pictures for you Howard.  It's been kind of a slow year on my trail camera.  I haven't seen many big bucks.  That's OK.  I see plenty of doe and I know the bucks will move in when the time is right. 

This buck is showing up pretty often but always at night.

I've kept a camera on this same cedar tree for years.  The deer are used to it I guess.

These are the first batch of pictures off of a new browning trail camera.  I like it a lot better than the Stealthcam it replaced. 

The day time pictures are super clear

This buck pawed the ground a little and is leaving his mark in this picture.  There is a scrape under this tree every year.

Hey Guys,
 Osage outlaw... He is a good one for sure. Will let you know what he weighs soon I hope. Got one last year that was 225, and another 145.
Hawkdancer,  yes lots of meat, these hogs, I think are mixed, not pure Russians, as they have a good bit of fat. Really good eating!
GlisGlis, that feeder is made of 4 " PVC pipe, the bend is just a 90 degree elbow, the section on the ground just has an oval slot cut in it, with a end cap glued on. Also put an " eye"  bolt in the cap, to stake it to the ground. Other than a cap on the top, That's it.
Holds about. 35 lbs. Of corn. I've been using it for years now.

Post by: BowEd on November 01, 2018, 08:45:12 am
Some really nice pics Bill.I'd zero in on one of them for sure.Hope you get a shot.I used to coon hunt in eastern Kentucky in a beautiful area[Sturgis,Kentucky] that was full of persimmon trees with a fella named Billy Joe.It was a former coal mining area which Billy Joe was most of his life.
The area I hunt is rather small so I don't use any cameras either.I try to count deer and the bucks I see during the rut while out.Some years as many 8 or 9 different bucks of various sizes.Some years are crazy and very entertaining.
No pigs or bear here though.I gotta settle for an occasional turkey to be different.This year a doe was below me but not quite right,then 3 turkeys came by too yet.It was a fun hunt for sure.
I'm a little surprised more bobcats are'nt seen on these cameras.I've seen a few.I know they are around here pretty good.

Not a game cam. I just took this out of my living room window. A spike buck about 20' from the house eating the berries the birds have knocked out of our Mountain Ash. He was there last night all through the trick or treating too. This is about the size Island Blacktails get. We normally have does in the yard but bucks are rare. Half a mile from here there seems to be lots of bucks
Title: Re: game cam pics - let's see em

Title: Re: game cam pics - let's see em
Post by: DC on November 01, 2018, 06:47:28 pm
He looks like he's about 2'+ at the shoulder. A couple of does came by in the field next to the house. It took him about 15 minutes to figure out how to get out of the yard but he managed. They peed on the ground for him and then walked off into the bushes. He's still smelling the pee trying to figure it all out.

I haven't seen any gators yet (!), but this guy has shown up a couple of times.  We will see if he makes it through the gun season, which starts Saturday here.  The camera is right where I have a ground blind set up, so this would have been a really nice shot if I had been there...no luck yet meeting him in person.

That's a nice,big,fat wild hog S.C.Hunter.Congrats.A little about how your getting them/weapon used etc. might be nice.Does the dog help?I got friends that go south to Oklahoma and Texas every winter in january with their long bows hog hunting,but they never come home with hogs of that size.
They've gotten so they have to shoot their hogs at night any more also.Once in a while they come home with a javelina.
I should go with them sometime,but am satisfied just to chase the whitetail and turkey around here.Sure would be nice to eat wild hog though.

I really enjoy checking the trail camera this time of year.  I never know what's going to be on there.

I watched this buck work the scrape as this picture was taken while I was in my stand.

This was a surprise to see this picture.  I think its the first time I've ever had a skunk on camera. 

(https://i.imgur.com/CpW1zDC.jpg)

(https://i.imgur.com/VxoGoh2.jpg)


The buck on the right has a broken front right leg.  He is 2.5 years old but has the body and rack of a 1.5 year old.  He doesn't put weight on that leg but he does use it to work the scrape.  Last year he was a 1.5 year old spike.  He walked through my front yard last week.  It looks like his left shoulder is larger than it should be.  I guess it's from supporting twice the weight as it should be.

I found these next two pictures interesting.  Both are young bucks the same age I'm guessing.  The first one has a swollen neck and a heavy body.

(https://i.imgur.com/EdNnLZq.jpg)


This one has extremely long legs.  As soon as we saw the pictures we noticed it.  If it lives long enough to fill out that body it will be interesting to see what it looks like.

We haven't seen many mature bucks this season.  There sure is a lot of young ones though.  I thought this picture was neat with the two fighting in the background.

Being a "city boy", I'd say that "buck" is a late 2 1/2  - maybe 3 year old!  I assume it is a feral hog.
Big enough if you like pork, though (=) (-_) -C-!

Other than tasting good I don't know a lot about hogs. I'm thinking he's probably a young one though and probably a good eater. Looks like a boar. Can you tell if he's casturated? Looks like he's had his eye teeth removed. Only hogs we've had we're 4-H hogs. I know they grow from piglet to butcher hog real fast. We usually got the piglets in March and by August they were ready to butcher. Em em good. Pearl probably knows more about those critters. He seems to have a few experiences with them.

With young bucks like you showed there a person usually is'nt off more than a year.I can't claim to be ultra accurate by sight.Proper teeth aging is the most accurate.I'll say 2and 1/2.At that age they look a lot like a race horse.Up to 4 and 1/2.It's when they get above 5.5 year old it's harder to judge.They become more sway backed large bodied and blocky looking.
Your pig has got some age I'd say.I'm glad those things are'nt around here.You must have seen sign of their activity in the past if you've got wild ones around.I'd shoot that sucker for sure.Like you said there's good bacon/ham there.I think the way it stands in Iowa there is an open season year round on those fellas.Like coyotes.

The hog looks like a domestic that has got loose from somewhere.  Animal control has been trying to find it. 

BJ, It's either a boar or it has a bad case of hemorrhoids  :o
Title: Re: game cam pics - let's see em

A domestic will turn into a wild pig looks wise[longer snout etc.] and everything if left loose wild long enough.

Post by: osage outlaw on November 18, 2018, 10:08:20 am
That's true Ed.   According to the laws in Indiana, I can't shoot a domestic animal that belongs to someone else.  But I am allowed to kill any and all wild hogs with any weapon at any time.  So when does it officially become a wild hog and not a domestic?

I'd say check the free range laws and with the state Wildlife office, but I agree with DBar!  That doesn't look like he's missed any meals!  I'm not even stress our Parks & Wildlife have addressed the issue, but we do have a lot of open range land here in Colorado that covers all livestock, I think.  However, hogs may not be included!  I'll check.

Well then it's up to you if you get a chance to shoot it I quess.If it hangs in your area and keeps destroying things which it will I'd say you could get a degradation tag maybe to harvest it if you want to do it the completely legal way.
Around here I usually just take care of it and be done with it.Lots of by products out of that old boy I'd say besides meat.You got a smoker?Almost wish I had one running around here.....lol.

He's a large 8 pointer.I estimate him to be at least 4.5 year old.Probably more.He's built like a box car.At least 250 pounds for sure on the hoof weight.Probably closer to 300 pounds.

Aww!, OO, the little pygmies is cute! And they eat a lot of weeds! 
Checked out feral hogs with CPW here in Colorado, and they are considered an invasive species, no license required, any legal method of take, no limit, open season year around.  A night hinting permit is required for public land, though.  No night vision optics or baiting, or dogs permitted.

I was checking the thickness of ice for ice fishing the other day and took my camera along.Some deer were browsing cleaning up on soybean stubble.This buck with a bunch of does has survived the gun season so far.You'll notice he's lost his left rack already.That happens a little early once in a while.
Ice is plenty thick enough for getting some bluegills,but the warmer inbetween weather can make it a bit sketchy.

His chance of making it to next season probably got better with the half rack missing Ed. Now he can work at gaining some weight back to make it through winter.

Did it shed the rack or was it broken off during the rut?  We had a nice buck on our place with one side broken off before the brow time.  I came home one night and it was standing in my driveway.   I got a good look at it.  Must have been a crazy fight to snap it off like that.

If I had to say I would say he lost it from fighting.The winter is being mild again here.So far anyway....Ha Ha so their weight health seems pretty good.He knows though there will be does coming into estrus though as they miss some.Some fawns sometimes are almost too young or not mature enough to come in first time too.
I saw a big 8 with half a rack one time before the end of october once.Loss of rack had to be from fighting.Called him half rack all the time.He never got close enough.
One year I had my nephew and his son over here for late season muzzle loader hunting.That's late december/early january here.They said they scared an 8 point that in the deers' process of taking off they saw it lose half the rack.I had him take it home with him.

Hi Guys,
I have another hog at the feeder, going to try, and get him soon. He has a coat of ice on him. Makes him really look wild.

This is from a few seasons back. The same night I got a pic of a bobcat and one of my domestic cats. The two pics are overlayed shows a comparison of the cats.

That's an unusual pic of the cats. Are you sure they are not colluding?   ;D

I get a decent amount of coyote pictures on my camera.  They are usually on the small side, either females or young males.  This one stood out.  Looks like a very healthy male.  I had pictures of several others and they weren't as big as this one.

Great pictures guys. I really enjoyed looking at what is sneeking around your neck of the woods. I don't use trail cams but have some buddies that do. I figure I'm an opportunist not a horn hunter so if it gets in the way of an arrow it'll be good eating. Did'nt get out much this year so no traditional harvest. Had to cheat when rifle season came along and at least make sure a big doe went in the freezer.

Way to go S.C. Hunter.Love it.You can't beat that efficiency of time usage hunting.That's pretty darn quick.That's a porker for sure!!!!I suppose they get bigger yet around there???Into the freezer he goes.I'd bleach his skull man.
One of these days I'm going to go with this group here that goes to Oklahoma or Texas every year from up north here.Those guys don't usually come home with a 190 pounder though.Every now and then they get a javelina.

Hey BowEd,
  Thanks Man. I am pretty sure that this is the one I posted pics of with the ice in his hair.   The one before that was a 230 pounder.  The biggest I have ever gotten was 260.
  We can hunt Hogs at night here. I use a motion detecting, Green Kill Light, works great!    (-_)
