I wanted to show you guys these. I posted them on another site but thought you may like to see them here. Me and my wife went out in November/December looking for some spots to hang some cams in the cold months here in Saskatchewan. We captured these in December and January.
We specifically placed the cams to capture the local deer jumping this fence. We put various cams here off and on. These were all taken with FS7. These are the best ones. Had many partial deer as well. As you can see in the pics we used a few different trees to hang the cam at the crossing. Going to be putting a DVNS that I built that has Ralph's SMT control board with the flash backpacker with here next year to try and capture day video of them using the fence. Will set the video build to shut off to night pics so they keep using it during daytime hours.

Good pics., know it's tough getting good ones like that. Have me jealous, this one is on my bucket list. Have tried for a few years and most they're either just leaving the ground, just landing or blurry.
btw that last buck is a Boone and Crockett buck for me, other one I'd have already fallen out of my stand if I saw it!!

Jon .. I had many suggestions offered of where to set the cam and how high and so on. So what me an my wife did was look over the situation and we actually captured pics from many distances. We set the cams about as high as the top of the post. We had cams close and far. They all worked. I believe the real key here is that these deer jump this spot always and no one can bother them here. (Posted land) The fence crossing does slow down after they get flashed at a few times at the spot. We got to test many cameras. BUT its only a timing issue and luck.

I only set my buddies property and it only had fence along one side for maybe 1/4 mile. I'd set the places most often seeing tracks but there was nothing you could pattern this year so really didn't set it. I have a great one of a doe jumping but it was that in between period when wasn't dark enough for a flash (was maybe 7' away on the post). Another is from the back and she is just reared up. Have one where the buck is outstretched going over the top wire, excellent shot...except at night and it is just outside slaves range so is dark and blurry. [frown] Am going to have to concentrate more this year on a different place. Have tried corn spread on both sides but almost all they go under the fence.
