    Rhetorical question, of course...

    He'd look good on the freezer and on the wall. (2nd one isn't bad either)

    What's interesting is that I have a Boss Buck feeder that is about 40 yards from this scrape. If this were a daylight clip, you might be able to see it in the background. I have a camera on it and the other feeder about 80 yards away. Does and young ones are killing the corn, but neither of these 2 have hit it yet. This split tine and a really good 8 are on the feeders as recently as overnight Friday though.

    My problem with dumping on the ground is the bluejays find it and tell the turkeys.
    I don't have 8 or 10 turkeys; I had more than 60 of 'em knock out 50# of corn in just 2 days. They would eat for a while, lay in the shade for a while and eat some more, daylight to dark. Was gone before the deer knew it was there!
    I do like the Boss Buck feeders. It took a little while for the deer to warm up to them but once they did, they're hooked.
    These 2 tens aren't even caught passing those cameras. Truth be told, this is the only camera that caught them and I have all the main trails covered. Or so I thought...

    Cam is too low , it should be a min of 6' off the ground or every buck and doe that walks by will know it's there, and try as you might you will leave scent on it everytime you check it..

    I think location depends on what you want in the photos, right?

    I think they've gotten used to me though. I've been swapping the cards on 8 cameras every Sunday since August. This past Sunday I had deer passing the cameras within 15 minutes of pulling the cards and driving off. Besides... there are some funny interactions between the deer and the cameras. More to do with the IR red light than my scent if I had to guess. Even had deer walking by and sniffing a camera within a few hours of moving it to a new location.
