Do Trail Cam's Spook The Deer?
 
The Flash part mainly?
It seems that when I set my cam up on a trail, the deer may come and go for a week, maybe two, then poof! Nothing what so ever. They totally avoid it or make a mad dash past it, as their tracks tell me any way.
Do you think a cam could spook the big guys out of the area or just alter their travel routes?

I was worried about this as well, but so far it dose not seem to bother the elk or mule deer, if you take a look at the pic's I posted earlier you will see a bull elk bedded right in front of the cam, that bull stayed there for 2 hours with the cam taking pic's every 2min's!

I don't think the flash bothers them,I get lots of pics of the same deer last year and this year.

What bothered game in the past with the 35mm cameras is the film advance. The new digital cameras are awesome....especially the IR models.

I think each deer varies. Most i dont think it bothers but sometimes you get that one deer that it does. A few years ago I kept putting a camera over a certain bucks scrape. I would get his pic one time and then wouldnt return. It happend to me over 3 different scrapes with him. For the most part i dont worry about it.

Better check the laws in your area....

I think they are passing new laws to keep paparazzi in control...

Did you start calling that bull Brittany????
