Welcome to Bowhunt America's SpyPoint Central. For the next year we will be posting and discussing pictures we gather with our SpyPoint Tiny-W Scouting Cameras. In addition, we will also be posting weekly camera setup tips and information about the Tiny-W SpyPoint Scouting Camera.
For the past few months I've been chasing big mule deer near my home in southeastern Colorado. As many of you know, mule deer are hard to capture on trail cam. The reason being is the habitat these wide-racked beasts call home is vast and open. There are few things to funnel their movements, and by nature these savvy beasts don't tend to pattern as well as other game animals.
About a month ago I placed one of my Tiny-W cameras on the edge of an agricultural food source. Tracks littered the area, and some nearby tamarack bushes had been torn to shreds. I placed my camera on a field post, which was facing the trail at a 45 degree angle. The only problem was the post was a fair distance off the trail. But thanks to the Tiny-W's 70 degree angle of side motion sensors and adjustable PIR distance, I was able to get some great bucks on camera.
When I saw this buck among my images, I knew the target of my Thanksgiving bowhunt... Keep checking back to see how it turns out.
God Bless and Good Hunting
