For the last 2 months I've had a ton of deer & hog(outside feeder pen) pics. Average about 500 a week. About 6 different bucks, a couple doe's & about 40 different hogs. Just checked my game cam today & had 276 pictures from the last TWO weeks. 6 pic's consisted of 2 tiny deer I've never seen before and 6 pic's of 4 hogs. The rest were coons. What could cause this? I've done nothing different than I have for the last several years but everything but the coons have vanished! Went & checked the only 2 oaks on the property to see if maybe they were dropping acorns & there were absolutely none in the trees or on the ground. No tracks or scat of deer or hogs there. Your ideas??????

Maybe your neighboring hunters have started feeding.

Acorns, someone set up another feeder, new growth from the rain, but I'd put my money on Acorns or the new feeder.

Note: Not all acorn bearing oaks are the same, and some trees attract deer, and some don't, and possible the good tasting acorns may be on some trees that are not on your property.

Once i learned that i didn't "NEED" to kill something, and that if i did kill something all the fun stopped and work began, i was a much better hunter.

Happens this time of year. The does moved because they found a more consistent, easier food source. The bucks followed the does. The pigs are probably just a coincidence, but they might be hitting the same food source.

Anyways, your hunting season is ruined, so you might as well just pack it up and call it a year. Bigtime failure by you.

Just kidding, they'll be back.

Had the same problem 10 years ago in San Saba. Had no clue what was going on until I saw the cat as I was leaving the ranch. The cat was seen 3-4 more times while I was still on that lease. Lease was lost a year later and the hunting never improved.
