Sneak peak of wildlife

I got my Dad a trail camera maybe three years ago for Father’s Day. This year, the hubby and I bought a camera for my father-in-law. We surveyed the spot where he usually is sits and looked for a good spot. In the over all scheme of things, I am a newbie hunter (9 years) but I like to think I know where to stick a camera and find some good photos. But I am at a loss. He has said that he has seen deer in the area but I did not see any sign. The land is a piece that looks like it has not been cut in 30 years or more. A small stream and some blow downs. Would you guys put it up near the stream? I would love for him to get some photos because there is nothing cooler than seeing the pics and knowing there are deer around. I will take some pics tomorrow I post so you have a better idea of what Im working with.

There’s a squatter in my Sky Condo

Dad and I were putting the trail camera back out, checking the amount of apples on the trees and looking for signs of deer around the sky condo. Dad had cleared away some brush and random limbs and he cut down the tree that prevented me from shooting the deer that he...
