New Bucks,Doe Kill, Trespassers!

Reply
Made my first hunt on my new lease this weekend. Friday afternoon I saw a few deer including what I thought was a good buck at 80 yards but didn't shoot anything. Saturday morning I had two does come in about 20 yards away and I took one of them. This was my second bow kill! She was a pretty big doe(over 100lbs). After the morning hunt I checked my cameras and noticed that one was different than the rest. Most had over 1000 pictures and this one only had 88. the camera was on a larger tree than I would normally put them on and was hung up using two bungies attached to each other rather that crossing them like I usually do. I thought this was strange but I was excited to check the cameras so I let it go. When I checked it was was very happy with the pictures that I found(two new good bucks) but I also noticed another file saved on my card. This file contained four pictures that weren't mine. They were pictures of a man and women that I don't know. What I think happened is that the guy trespassed, realized he would be on my game cam, took the memory card to try to erase it but actually ended up putting some of his own pictures on my card, then he hung it up on the wrong tree and hung it differently then I do. Needless to say I'm very pissed. Here are some pictures of the weekend including my doe, the two new bucks, and the trespassers pictures that he left on my card.

This is the strangest post I've seen on here to this date. Seriously, the last two are of people you don't even know?

That is just plum crazy!

Man, you have some really nice bucks on your lease!

I would call the sheriff, trespassing is a criminal offence.

Looks like to me that the couple thanked you for letting them borrow your camera. Most people that trespass usually take the camera and you never see it again. I'd personally try to find out just who these people are and go calling. Maybe you can strike up a new friendship with them. JMHO

Put the pics up on your Facebook page, then let your friends spread them out. I can almost guarantee that you will be able to ID those folks within a week or so.

Nice bucks buddy. I hope you kill one of them...or all of them! I have one question though, are you sure that is a woman in those pictures?

Bad situation but not sure you can do much about it. Eventhough you have these pictures I find it hard that anyone will convict them without a confession. Unless you have pictures of them in the act it won't stick. Still a bad situation. Great bucks. I would love the opportunity at one of them this year.

At least Uncle Rico was kind enough to leave you your camera on the tree and go through all that trouble.
Most trespassers would have gone home with it.

yea I'm sure its no one I know. I plan on printing out the pictures and hanging them on the tree with the camera and around town. I've been posting them on all the hunting forums I can think of to see if anyone knows them. Im sure we wont catch them in the act but I want them to know they didnt get away with it and hopefully keep them off the property.

Man this is my thought. He knows he was there and he was nervous enough to go through all the trouble to try to erase his tracks. He now knows you have cameras out that will take his picture but yet didn't steal your camera. The thing I would do at this point is print off his picture and put it in a clear plastic sleeve and hang it on each trail on your property with posted sign. This will make him so nervous he will never come back. He probably will never come back now after getting busted by the camera. You may even want to put your ph# on their and say if you want to clear this mess up call me and we can stop this now. Sometimes a little diplomacy are your best best and will solve your problem forever, it worked for me.

I just don't understand how someone can delete the pictures on a memory card and accidentally add pictures to the card.

I just can't think of anyway to accidentally add the pictures to the card. I believe he wanted you to find those two pictures and he wants you to believe that is him and his wife in those pictures.

I don't believe for a second that anyone that is smart enough to remove the memory card, delete the pictures of himself to avoid incrimination, and return the camera, is stupid enough to somehow accidentally leave pictures of himself on the camera.

I don't think the man in those pictures is your suspect. He did that to throw you off. JMHO.

Pretty easy to understand what happened. The trespasser probably realized his pic had been taken, and must have had a memory card in his backpack. Thinking it was blank, he took the card out of the camera and put his 'blank' one in. This explains why the camera owner had much fewer deer pics on this camera. The 'blank' card probably wasn't in the camera very long before the camera owner checked it.

First of all I don't know of many people that just walk around with a memory card in their backpacks while scouting. But the camera was on a different tree. So he didn't just swap cards.

He must have taken the camera home, deleted pictures and then put it back on there.

I just don't believe that anyone thats willing to go through that much trouble to not get caught is stupid enough to put the memory card back in with pictures of him and his wife. I don't think there's anyway to format that card and 'accidentally' put those pictures on it.

Either this guy is extremely stupid, or he's outsmarted a whole bunch of people. I'm sorry but I lean towards the second one. I don't believe for a second the man in the picture is the suspect.

When was it put out and when did you check it? How many days between putting it out and returning to check it?

I know what happen.....
It had to be Sasquatch he is the Culprit. The camara got a picture of him. He switched the cards. The people you see in the picture are not real people at all. They are aliens. Sasquatch did this to cover his tracks.

I have to agree with Henry Wiggins, i think whoever it is is just jerkin your chain bud.

This has got to be the weirdest thing I've ever heard of. Someone has got to be playing a joke on you or something. Not to downplay the trespassing situation, but those pics are rediculous and hilarious all in one!
