I have never used the video feature on my camera before. I decided to give it a try this weekend in hopes of seeing something amazing. While the results were not quite amazing, they were certainly fun to watch. The camera shot 18 sixteen second videos in just over two days. Here are some of the highlights! Enjoy!
Yes, Mr. Eight point is still hanging around as you can see. I also got some videos of feeding does, coons, squirrels and of course turkeys. Some of you have said that Mr. Eight point is a shooter. Now that you have had the chance to see him move around a little, do you still feel that way? I think he is only a 2 1/2 to 3 year old deer and needs a little more time to turn into a wall hanger. He is still a little leggy and he doesn't have that drooping belly yet. He also seems to be very skiddish in his movements like a younger deer looking for his big brother to jump out from behind a tree. He is a nice deer, but if he gets to next year I think he could be a stud. Just look at the progress he made from last year. I'm pretty sure this is the same deer based on the general area that he is in and the fact that he has that nice curve on the end of his rack on the right side.

See what a difference a year makes!!
So go out and flip your camera to video mode if you want a little change of pace. It is pretty cool to see these deer move around a little bit and give you some different perspective.
