I have always wondered how characteristics of a deer herd are estimated in a given area. Finally I found a plan that got me excited to try. While thumbing through Bowhunting Magazine, I found the perfect article to satisfy my curiosity. I thought that I had to share this with our readers who may be wondering the same thing: How to Conduct a Trail Camera Census for Whitetails.
I plan to conduct a late season survey to get an idea of what may have survived the winter and the hunting season and an August (2013) survey to determine what the prospects are for the year and to help determine goals for doe harvests. If all goes well, I hope to continue this method for several years to see if there are any changes in the population or its make up.
Just Food for thought.
