I don't,but I plan on using one or more next season.My problem is I do 85% of my deer hunting on public land.Afraid to put money in it to have it stolen.

I have one and i wish i had many more. Late June or early may is a good time to put them out in the midwest so you can see the antlers developing and the new fawns showing up.

My best advice is to set up a location where the deer are "ok" with cameras.

IE - mineral licks, feeders, feild sides, certain trails, certain scrapes.

I agree that a flash can spook a mature buck, but i and my buddies gets hundreds of mature buck photos a year at certain places where the deer are OK with cameras. One of these places is a scrape that i have had a camera on for 3 years in a row...and every year i get good bucks hitting it.

3 years in a row with mature bucks hitting the same scrape and not fearing the camera. Mineral licks seem to be the best though when it comes to repeat offenders.

I have had 2 moultries and 3 wildview's and recently bought a new bushnell scout pro and I get twice as many pictures on the bushnell than i ever had with the others. I watch the deer on my property year round and it's neat to see them grow new antlers every year and I do agree that some mature bucks will get spooked by the flash....it is nice to have IR on a camera so you don't worry about flash!
