    So I have a pick of a nice buck on camera but I only have him on there once so far. Is it just a buck passing by or is the colder weather making him move around? What are your thoughts?

    That depends on allot of factors. Weather being one of them, but not knowing the weather in your surrounding area, we would have no idea where to start. Have you been running cameras there for several seasons, or would this be your first?

    It could just be he changed his normal routine and happened to cross in front of your camera finally. My guess is he's a local. You could move your camera to a new location and see if he pops up again

    I'm no expert but when I see a new guy on the camera I assume he's outside his territory until I see him at least one more time. I run a basically permanent camera on the equivalent of a deer interstate in suburbia. He may stick around if u have food, cover and some ladies and no other big guys around

    Nice buck! He probably is from another property, But, if you have plenty of ladies there, he will be back!!

    No way of knowing. One camera or several for that matter aren't going to tell the whole story. Thats the great thing about this you just never know what your going to see from the stand. Good luck, I hope you see him again during the day.
