we run over 20 cameras - some years I get excited and put them out too soon and we get pretty much useless pictures because they are not developed enough yet. Other years we do a little too late. Thinking about end of June? When do your deer in south texas have enough horn on them to be worth running cameras?

I just picked mine up from last year. A few of them still had juice, so I could watch certain regulars lose horns and start growing them back again. Pretty neat.

Been monitoring the pregnant does to get a sense when they dropped and how long they are nursing.

We're running 18 in Webb Co. now, but end of June is about right for an idea of what they're gonna be.

We leave our cameras out year round in south Duval County. Our most growth at this time is just past brow tines with beginnings of G2's.

Checked cameras last weekend and this is the first year we have had multiple penned feeders with corn protein and water available non stop year round, and the number of deer we are seeing is way up for this time of year. Also thanks to the pens the number of hogs we are seeing is way down!!! cheers

I am close to Del Rio. Our Mid July seems to be a good target for putting them out in our area. They will still have growing to do but they will be recognizable.

About to put mine out. It helps me to know if they start showing signs of EHD and I like to watch them grow early on. I have some bucks that are already at the turn and some that are still just coke bottles. Amazing the different development in the same time span.

I think we will go end of this month - we leave ours out after the season for about a month to see how they are doing post rut - not interested in messing with over 20 cameras when you just see does and bucks with bare heads -

We run 40 to 50 cameras on CS feeders and don't put them out until the first weekend of August.
Most bucks are far enough along to recognize those that got a pass last year and identify culls to target early before the batchelor groups break up (if you can see them in daylight). I would guess 98% of the buck pics are at night until Oct.
