Default what to do

I've had my trail cameras out for 3 weeks now and getting about 1000 pics a week but only does and fawns not one buck.the treed area isn't real big and with 2 cameras in there I thought forsure I would see a buck,there was a nice one there last fall but the zone is CWD.I'm wondering if the bucks got shot or maybe there just not traveling the trails I have the cameras.

Should I move them,leave them there or try and find a diferent spot all together?

Timba, don't know what to tell you about moving the cameras, but the bucks are running on their own now. had 7 different bucks coming in at one time, but lately, nothing. still have the does coming in though. just nature running its course I guess.

Try and find some not so defined trails off to the sides of the well used ones. I have done this in the past only to find that the bucks are running different trails parallel to the doe trails.

Don't worry this sound like a spot that I'd be back to check once the rut is closer. The bucks will come looking for all the does.
