you'd best be thinning them puppies out some.
my go-to area, it's been my best place for cams. my one set-up has been my tops, on a licking branch. every buck anywhere in that whole area would pay a visit. i'd watch them year after year, showing up in the spring, watching their antler growth all through the summer, then them get ready for the rut, shedding their velvet and fatten all up.
then, this year, hardly any deer at all on the cams. and the go-to licking branch spot, a deer, a doe, would pass by once in a blue moon. but, something I noticed this year that I never did in any others. suddenly there were coyotes routinely showing up on the cams. there has always been coyotes in the area, but it seems like they have certainly over-populated this year. it got to where, there was no point leaving my cams up there any more. no bucks showed up all year. if the snow isn't too bad this year, and I am able to get up that high(doubtful), I might have to get up there and do some dog-thinning.
