New to the forums- just thought id try pic posting to see if i could. Guess it worked. Hope everyone had a safe and successful season. This buck keeps getting by me. So far ive seen him 4 times and have a bunch of nightime pics of him. Got a 2 does and a nice 6 point this year. I hunt in Goss just outside of Columbia. My dad just bought 145 acres in Monticello a couple of weeks ago and we'll be splitting time next year between the two.

Nice pic jayman..

1st off, Welcome to the forum! Bring some friends on over too.

Trailcams are another passion of mine. I have thousands of pics stored on my computer at home :) All my trailcams are "homebrews" . I currently have 4 digitals and 7 35mm cameras :)

I have generated some neat graphs based on sun, moon, and trailcam phototime data.. check them out on my home computer:

Where did you learn to make your cameras? I go to a site http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums and got everything i needed to know to make one. That picture came from the Leaf River digital camera. It takes great pics. The ones i made i always seemed to have a problem with the sensor. Where did you find the time to make that many cameras :)
That is the best pic of a buck during the day i have ever gotten since ive starting "camming"

I used to be a regular over at Jessess, but it just seems like I cant get any advice/help over there anymore.

A lot of the original homebrew builders went over to http://www.hagshouse.com You can get plenty of help there, and the guys are friendly. The 35mm cameras were all made over the last 4 years or so.. The four digital have been made just since November.

Digital is definately the way to go now. Its 10x easier to build a digital than the 35mm. There is no soldering on the actual camera anymore when using the sony P32 or P41. I can complete a digital unit in one evening now, apx 3 hrs work (not including the glue dry time).

Welcome Jayman!

GTK is awesome on his trailcams. I have some of his work. I guess you could say that I got the family discount on them. Of course, sometimes that is worse.

Great Pic by the way!
