Thatís odd on the covert. Mines still at 80% after 3 weeks of rechargeable energizers and 4 lithium energizers... the other is down to 40% after about 1.5 months of just regular energizers

You may not be getting the same number of pics as Ambush. Bad reception can be a big drain, as well.

Yes lots of pics, they were pounding that corn hard in the late season.
Also I've heard if you have the camera set to check in with the Cellular Tower constantly (default) it kills you batteries.. supposed to change it to once every 12- 24hrs?

Haha.. No I aint shooting that deer, hes just so impressive its going to be painful watching him pass by at close range. Thirteen has always been the target and he will remain the target until I get him killed or he dies of old age

Now that's the determination that will get the job done. This week into the weekend looks like great weather to be in the woods. His time is coming.

Things are definitely heating up, for the first time all season Thirteen has finally made a daylight appearance.. He showed up at 7:35 this morning right behind the Crab Claw 10.
Perfect Southeast wind this afternoon so the plan is to hunt this evening and again in the morning. This Buck may not do the same thing twice but I'll be on stand just in case he does!

It could just be the angle of that last picture but are we sure he is gonna make AR? I don't know why but those last two pics make him look real narrow. With that said, I shot a deer with a very similar frame and he was right at 14" wide.

Thatís why he named him Ď13í last year.
That old bruiser, who really cares about ARís!?! No Game Warden is going to ticket you for killing 13 regardless!

Gah!!!! Well at least he's making a show in daylight hours, thats a good thing. I hunted a LARGE old buck years ago on a 20ac property that showed every 3 days. Maybe he'll get on a pattern and not every 10 days.

Couple of the other deer are definitely getting daylight regular Steve. This Crab Claw 10 has came in daylight back to back days now. Hopefully Thirteen is not far behind-
