Since early September, a big 12-point mule deer has been on one of my trail cameras. Every one of those pictures has been in the dark, until now. Last week, I set a new bait site, corn and alfalfa hay, at a fence crossing 700 yards farther west from where I had been getting the big buck’s nighttime-only pictures. Judging from past experience with mule deer in that area, I suspected this buck was coming from a steep canyon full of brush near that fence crossing. Maybe if I put a blind there my odds would increase on seeing him in daylight.
