Just run with it if ya want.

It’s a trail camera that you can set to only take photos of bucks...

:) That's funny!

I actually do have a million dollar idea for a product for hunters, but no way to implement it :) I think it would be really popular for elk/sheep hunters

Shug what about the buck in another thread that is definitely a buck but grew no headgear. Would it take pictures of him?

From: M.Pauls

Yeah you’d want a testicle sensor for sure. By far more accurate

My buddy and I have always wanted to develop a dart gun to shoot the up-n-comer bucks with, that would cause them to drop their antlers quickly. That way, they would be less apt to get shot by the neighbors.

From: Bou'bound

That would be a good idea

From: Scoot

Ok I'm confused... will the new cam have a rack detector, or nutdar, or both?

From: JTreeman

Then they would get shot as does....

t-roy I had a thought once about just shooting deer with tranq’s for like catch and release hunting. It would be cool with mega giants, cause you’d just saw their horns off and try again next year. No more wondering if you should “give him another year.” Of course not legal so just a funny thought but it would be cool. Just shoot spikes for meat :)

Good grief, what have we become? Trail cams are a disgrace to begin with. Now you want them to only take pics of bucks? Learn to hunt, son.

I want my trail cam taking pictures of big bucks, little forkies, bears, mtn lions, bobcats, coyotes, tresspassers, stray dogs, does, fawns, rabbits, and more.

Peco I want my trail cams to take pictures of naked super models but we don't always get what we want. ;)

I've actually got everything mentioned above and more on trail cam on my property. No supermodels around here, really not even much for hot chicks in yoga pants.

If I.could capture naked super models roaming my place, using trail cameras, I'd own stock in the business.

If you had naked supermodels running around your place I'd be trying for hunting permission.

Interestingly the new Moultrie mobile app can alert, and filter on bucks only.

I’ve already got a camera that takes pic of only 150” class bucks! The batteries never go dead either! (Of course I’ve never gotten a damn pic from it either). ;-)

To keep neighbors from shooting young bucks, you dart him and cut off one antler. :-). Off course, there are still meat hunters.....

TX one year I had a 170”+ 4 year old that would have likely been bigger the next year. He broke up early Oct.I called the neighbors and told them that he was broke and not worth shooting that if we all let him go someone would have an awesome opportunity the next year. Well during rifle season he came by me limping pretty bad. I should have shot him but I thought he might live. Never seen him again. Some people don’t care if a tremendous buck is broke his beam off after his brow they just want to shoot anything that moves. They likely shot him out of the window while driving the draws on the neighboring property.

LINK,

Believe it or not, some hunters couldn't give a crap about antlers. They just want to fill a freezer with meat. Letting a crippled buck walk, because you hoped he would live to grow a big rack next year is more disturbing to me than shooting a buck with a busted up rack.

Grey Ghost deer die every day to all sorts of things. I’ve seen a handful of deer, over my years hunting, that were missing a leg at the shoulder and thriving year after year. Some raised fawns. My take on compassion is undoubtedly different than yours. If a deer is laying in the road with a broken back I’ll kill him. Just because a deer comes limping by doesn’t mean it’s fatal. I certainly don’t think animals have feelings but I bet the deer liked his chances without me shooting him. Same reason I have trouble putting down on old dog just because he’s struggling a bit. I always figure they prefer to be alive and dont put them down until it’s evident they are not going to make it. My brother heard shooting a few years ago then had a few bucks run over the hill. One was limping so he put his tag on it. After killing it he realized it had just got done fighting another buck and had nothing fatally wrong with him. It was a buck he wouldn’t have shot otherwise. I’m sorry I just don’t feel the need to burn my tag for someone else’s screw up in the name of compassion for a wild animal.

To your comment about letting a crippled buck walk hoping he’d be bigger next year, that’s not the case. I let him walk multiple times because I didn’t want to shoot a half racked buck. When he came by wounded I let him walk because I didn’t feel compelled to finish someone’s job for them and the buck seamed as if he could make it.

As far as some people not caring about horns obviously the person that wounded that buck didn’t. I know them and I doubt they cared about the meat either as they have hundreds of homeraised yearlings. They just like to drive their pasture and take running shots at anything. If you want to see if you can follow him around and slip tags at $300 a piece on his wounded animals I’ll give you his number.

You're right LINK, we don't share the same compassion for our quarry. Sure, a buck that is "limping pretty bad" from a bullet wound might live. But the odds are he'll either die of infection, or get chased down by predators and eaten alive. I would rather put that buck in my freezer than in the bellies of scavengers, regardless of what his antlers looked like. But then, I got over my horn porn obsession years ago.

Didn’t you just shoot a big elk in a trophy unit and not find him for 3 days? Seams you dreamed of horn porn for 22 years. At least you got your antlers but you should have left them with the meat for the scavengers.

From: Grey Ghost
08-Nov-20
Yes, I waited 22 years for the opportunity to finally shoot a trophy bull, and I fulfilled that goal. I also made it quite clear it was a bittersweet hunt, because I didn't recover the meat. I guarantee you, had a lesser bull walked by "limping pretty bad" from a bullet wound, I would have killed it and hung my tag on it. But that's just me.

GG you really like to start crap regularly about how morally superior you are to everyone huh?

From: Grey Ghost
08-Nov-20
Shug, when I see a post that displays hunting ethics that are different than mine, I have no problem stating my opinion. Letting a badly wounded buck walk, just because he had a busted antler, displays a lot of what is wrong with deer hunting these days, IMO. Furthermore, suggesting that the hunter who chose to shoot that busted up buck did something wrong, other than making a bad shot, is laughable.

Your opinion may be different, and I'm fine with that. Hopefully you have the balls to express it.

Most wild animals are going to die of cause other than killed by a hunter. Most of those deaths are not going to be pretty. It is likely going to be slow and miserable until they just die or are killed by a predator. That is the circle of life. If a deer comes by you with a unsurvivable wound Mother Nature will take care of it soon enough. We ain’t god and should not act like it. If a wounded animal is really that concerning to us, probably should quit bowhunter because sooner or later we all are going to make a shot that puts us into a situation that we wound a animal or don’t recover for days and the meat is spoiled. If and when that happens hope we learn from it and don’t consider it a goal fulfilled.

Very well said John MC

Grey you should read his post... Several times

From: Grey Ghost
08-Nov-20
John,

You're right, we aren't God, and Mother Nature will take care of wounded animals in her own way. But, hunters are a part of Mother Nature as are all predators. Predators don't allow wounded deer to walk just because they have a busted rack, nor should hunters, IMO.

I do agree with you, however, I made a poor choice of words when I said I "fulfilled my goal" of killing a trophy bull. I did kill one, but my hunt fell well short of fulfilling my ultimate goal, because I didn't pack home his meat. I learned plenty from that experience, trust me.

Have a great day,

Matt

“Good grief, what have we become? Trail cams are a disgrace to begin with. Now you want them to only take pics of bucks? Learn to hunt, son.”

Having the “balls” to express your opinion is very different from Saying dumb chit on an Internet forum because you are hiding behind a keyboard. I virtually guarantee that in person you aren’t quite the dooshnozzle you frequently portray on here. If you are the same in person, this explains why you hunt alone.....

From: Grey Ghost

I apologize for my trail cam comment, gentleman. It’s how I honestly feel, and I’d say it to anyone in person, but it was inappropriate for a public forum, considering how popular they’ve become.
