The Perfect Deer Camp
The perfect deer camp experience happens when all the guys and gals in camp come together to have a great time. Typically this party is far better than camping in a State Park in the summer heat, it's generally better than some sore feet travel guide experience to and from the Hotel. The perfect deer camp trip is when the beer is cold, the campfire is roaring and the stories are flying. The best part is you get to go hunting in the morning. Most often the coffee tastes better, the food comes with great comfort and camaraderie is second to none. I get the jitters every year around August in anticipation of hunting the quarry of honor at our camp- the Whitetail Deer. The turkey hunting is great, the predator hunting is fun, but, the Whitetail Deer is definitely my favorite.
After all the Summer work is complete and the food plots are planted, the decoy target gets set out in the yard near the cabin and the practice begins! The trail camera has taken center stage for our Deer Camp in the last 8 years or so. It is a sure fire way of absolutely knowing what kind of animals your Camp has from year to year. We take great pride in the set up and the maintenance of our trail cams. For they are our window to see the wildlife like you can't when afield. The perfect Deer Camp experience includes an organized approach on the management of your trail cameras. When we set up our trail cameras, we label each camera with a name and number. We carry along 2 SD Cards for easy removal and replacement without missing a single picture. We always tote the laptop along to camp to download the photos from the cards into our file library for later re-organization and editing. Of course we then upload all of our trail cam photos to DeerCampNetwork.com for eternal safe keeping and historical recording. Nothing gives you pride in your camp like perusing through your trail cam photos each time you get to camp. It makes all the work worth it.
Mouse traps, Bugs, bad cell phone reception, a fuzzy TV signal, the outhouse. None of that matters when you have the bruiser of your life by the antlers in your hands ready to take that trophy photo out in front of your camp!
Great Hunting to you,
