This is the third year Iíve had this guy in my camera... never in daylight. Any ideas? He has to be 6, maybe 7 now.

All kidding aside might try setting feeders going off later in morning and earlier in the evening. Also donít give up, heíll slip up eventually!

He's smart thats why he's lived to be 6 or 7. Figure out where he is during the day, then hunt there or make sure you have a lot of does around and wait until one lures him into you.

If he's been at your feeder consistently, but never in daylight, you may never get him at the feeder. Try to figure out where he comes from, but he may be unkillable (on your place). When trail cams were gaining popularity, I was on a lease just north of Cisco and we had 2 very big bucks on camera. We never saw either and they were only at feeders between 11pm and 3am.

Is that feeder on a fence line or more centrally located?

Only spin the feeder enough for what will be eaten that day during day light hours. You may need to cut back on how much corn is being thrown in the eveing. That corn on the ground every night isnt doing you any good.

If that buck is at feeder, set up a hand corn spot a little ways(75-150 yards) away from feeder with good cover around. If you do that, I bet during cooler weather or rut he will show up during the day if he doesn't leave the area entirely as some bucks leave during the rut. Hand corn every time your out there with a camera on it. Don't hunt the hand corn spot until you have daylight pics of the buck you want to shoot.
