  • OK all you deer hunters out there. Do you see anything strange in this buck video.

    Another user on Southern Iowa live cam made this video of these bucks during a snowing night.
    Something stands out. Who will notice it first and how did it happen? I never seen it before.

    Well, for one it's a 9-point and not a 5x4...Westerners, God love 'em in their weirdness.

    Either the buck had a patch of white fur or more likely it was just a clump of snow. Also, one of the minor tines also had a branch... but I've seen that before. So what was it you wanted us to notice?

      The camera suddenly shifts to the right and zooms in.
      A little after the three-minute mark.
      One of the deer must have touched it.

        If it was the missing patch of hair then it's not the uncommon,On a deer drive once a group of deer bedded in a thicket were jumped ,I seen a buck snare one antler on a sapling that sent him tumbling,later after a hunter connected on him ,Thiswe commented on a hair patch missing. This deer could have easily lost a patch of hair on the angle steel support getting out of the way of a more dominant buck while feeding. Regardless it was fun to observe this bunch. Thx for sharing

              That user may of been from the west. Westerners use the western count and easterners use the eastern count.

                  I had noticed that also, but figured it was just longer hair growth, it is centered between his antlers. However, it could also be construed to be a swelling, but I would go with long and knarled growth hair.

                    I think it snow. Watch the direction of snowfall. Build up on the feeder was on the side he used. At the last few second you see him scratch his back and shake his head getting ride of an irritant.

                    Best guess He didn't to well in the Reenideer games.

                        99, Yes. The skull plate does not look right even with hair and snow.

                          Gary - Is it normal for trail cameras to scan and zoom on their own?
