Conducting a Deer Trail Camera Survey

Conducting a Deer Trail Camera Survey

July 31, 2019

In this episode of the Georgia Afield Hunting Podcast, we discuss how to conduct a trail camera survey on your hunting property. A trail camera survey can give you valuable information on your deer herd, like deer density, buck-to-doe ratio, fawn recruitment and even some age structure information. It's not a complicated process, and one that every deer manager should try.
