“In hunting, the finding and killing of the game is after all but a part of the whole. The free, self-reliant, adventurous life…the wild surroundings, the grand scenery… all these unite to give the career of the wilderness hunter its peculiar charm. The chase is among the best of all national pastimes; it cultivates that vigorous manliness for the lack of which in a nation, as in an individual, the possession of no other qualities can possibly atone.”
Here’s a video that I saw on Deer & Deer Hunting’s Website. We use the IR Cameras and not the flash cameras, but just from the pictures we have, you can tell that the deer are very curious by the red light. I am curious over time to look at the photos and see how many big bucks we can get multiple pictures of. So far, big bucks have only produced 1 photo each, but we don’t have the data to show one way or another. Regardless…this buck did not appreciate the Flash Camera.
