I swear our deer hate this camera

Post  bowGal on Tue Feb 17, 2015 5:21 pm

As you all know  I   bought   2  Covert Illuminators last year,   And I have ran flash camera's for many  year's , but  our buck's hate this camera, Set it up in the yard last night,  and actually this was the first  I have ever ran it in video mode, Deer(doe's and small  buck's) seem to be ok with it in daylight hour's in the area's I have ran it, but  it keep's showing me  how much they  hate  it   no matter where it is set up  during  night time hours , Have not had time to upload the  clips from last night   on a few young bucks reactions to it  for it being set up in this area for the first time,, I actually did not even know until last night this camera took colored night time video, Embarassed  there was no  audio , which  I did not like,
 Just curious if any of you  have every noticed   how  some deer will just not except certain camera's?

Maybe it flashes too bright. I have always had a decent amount of deer that hate my cameras. It doesnt matter which cam I use, once they figure out its there they avoid it. I have some deer that could care less and some that turn inside out over cams.

The only problem I see is some deer will see the red glow when a picture is taken. They seem to get used too it after a week or so. As far as a regular flash , well that all but sends them running to the next county !!!

i definitely saw problems when i had the old 35mm flash cameras.  they took great night pics but about every other one the deer was in a "darting to get away" position.  i'd rather have a blurry black and white pic or vid that the deer will tolerate than a cam that takes good pics but they may avoid it.

what i noticed with the flash cameras , some are better than others about not spooking deer. It is the flash type , The last cuddebacks i had , cant remember the model , they spooked deer like crazy. The flash would make a loud Pop sound when it went off . it wasnt the flash , it was the sound. it was barley noticable to me but it freaked out the deer. At the same time i had some Moultrie IR cameras, no flash, but they had the same effect on the deer. those cameras made a " clunk" when the IR filter would activate. Again barley noticeable to me but the deer hated it.  
I think if you were to set up that Illiminator in the house and you get close to it and have the cat or Larry trip it , your going to hear it.

I   never  have seen deer skirt any flash camera like they do this one,   They hate it even if it is not turned on, , Never have I  had a  problem with  the   reveal's or older cudde flash cam's  I  use to run, scratch scratch I always run them in the house Wily and  I never hear any sounds when they go off
