My deer never seemed to mind the old flash and hardly pay any attention to the red glow. They seem to always sniff the camera to see when I was there. I figure the bucks have more odds of hurting an antler as they go through the brush on their daily routine.
I used to pull mine after season as well, but have left them out for the last couple of years, you would be surprised what all goes on, even folks trespassing.
