In his June 20, 2008 Blog entry Mike Hanback writes about an article in Quality Whitetails magazine that listed the Top 10 Zones for Record-Book Bucks. Ranking number 10 on the list is East Coast Suburbia (places around Washington D.C, New York, and Philadelphia). Here at Moultrie we believe it. We have heard countless stories and seen hundreds of photos from people that have bought game cameras with the intent to use them on their hunting property only to set them up in their own backyard. How many of you have a game camera set up in your backyard? Has anyone captured a photo of a trophy class deer behind your house? Leave a comment telling us about the huge buck that stops to visit your camera, leaving you in fits because you cannot hunt him.
As Mike mentions in his Blog, now is a good time to gain permission to hunt these small pockets of woods that provide cover to many huge bucks. Check out Moultrie’s blog posting from last week for tips on how to gain permission and get a shot at that backyard buck.
