Doing this survey is also an extremely scientific documentation of deer behavior and movement. One very interesting note is just how temperatures and humidy affect the number of
pictures or actual deer movement on any given trail camera set.
To be specific : A trail cam set to take pictures every 20 seconds will always snap around 500 total pictures in a 5 or 6 day period when the temps have been SUBSTAINABLY COLD.
The same camera on the same tree and same deer herd will snap about 30 pictures in an equal amount of days when temperatures are abnormally warm.
Even more noteworthy is that after an extended period of abnormally high temperatures, the first few days of cold or seasonable temperatures have minamal effect on increased deer
movement. To get maximum pictures or deer movement in any given week requires seasonalbly sustainable temperatures. In other terms,continued enviromenental pressures are either real
bad or real good for trail cam pictures as well as the actual deer movement and sightings on any given period of hunting stand time. Deer movement actuality often does not match percieved
or human desire.
Updates to this section will be made at least weekly and often twice each week.
