Cameras are an obsession to some. I have quite a few myself and put them in places where you least expect to. Well, I should say I used to. Very rarely, up until I hurt myself and limited my reach, were they over any bait except for the natural bait in the wild or what the farmer might grow in the same type of places Hammer describes. It is nice to be surprised as to what is there in places where many would overlook.
Once the season starts things change. The natural world has a way to direct game to their needs. Well, up until baiting became an obsession for some and then the only way for many others. I know guys that travel an hour to bait a spot, take another hour coming home and then going back to sit over it in the evening and most times thinking on the hour ride home they will do it again tomorrow. I'm sorry but to me, that is nuts. Crazy actually. But, whatever floats their boat.
No doubt that cameras are fun but that has become an obsession on its own for some who show more pictures of deer on their feet than in the back of the truck. I enjoy seeing what is there, but rarely does it direct the nature of things. And, I liken bait to the drive in theater. The deer know the movie won't start until just after dark. Most times until they get wise to the ruse. You are better off to get them a comin' and a goin' after see n' the nature of things.
