Default I put my trail cam back out

I put my trail cam back out on 2-5-2020. There’s a deer out back with a broken leg from either an auto collision or was shot last November.. So yes I have started feeding him and the others that have been coming around. I mainly want to help the one with the bad leg mostly. I am hoping that our snow doesn’t get to deep for it. Anyway here’s a few pictures of them out back. I have tried to delete that sticker but can't appear to.. The more I try to fix it the more I mess it up..

I leave my cam's out all yr, 24/7365, and have for about 20 yrs now or more!

and like you I too have an injured doe/yearling, showed up second week of buck season, holding its front leg up, no gun shot or wound can be seen, and leg is being HELD up by the poor thing now ever since, we had a real bad ice storm just before it showed up and I think it fell on the ice and damaged its leg

never easy seeing them be this way
all the more so when you see the other deer pick on it, as they know its not right

I had hopes that a hunter would have got it to save ti from a harder life, but so far its been hanging in there
have seen many 3 legged one's last a few yrs too, had one that went for like 4 yrs before a local guy targeted it as a goal, and took all season to get it, but he did!
gather a 3 legged deer that lives that long was pretty smart one, minus the original injury, but had to learn to get by on 3 and avoid hunters and coyotes and such!

This is the second deer that I have seen like this. The last one came out at night and was a huge buck that a guy shot at. That winter we had deep snow and I have never seen it again. I am hopeful that our snow doesnít get so deep this year so it will make to another hunting season.

I've always enjoyed looking at northern deer. Their heavy frame is impressive.

Thank you Jake

We have been having some strange weather this winter. It has been warm for us with snow and freezing rain and then up around 40. That was most all of January and now halfway through February we are getting some cold air. Tonight they are calling for 6 below. I set another trail cam out to watch my bird feeder. There has been a deer raiding it every night now. So I set it on video mode and I am hoping it will capture it eating from that feeder. It would be interesting to see it doing that anyway.

checked cam's today 4600 + pictures since last time

and oddly enough I had chipmunks on cam the past 4 weeks
which I don't ever recall seeing in Jan/Feb here.

this weather any more is just far from normal IMO, too many wild temp swings, has critters all messed up!

WOW! My 16 gb card got maxed out at 2774 pictures on it. I am getting around 300 pictures a day on it. Thatís because I am feeding them though. The one with the bad leg is loosing weight by the looks of things. Those other deer keeps driving him away. But he is getting some that they leave behind..
