I'm a little rusty on this posting pics thing, but I'm going to try. Here is a couple, one with me on the Grizz hauling some winter feed, and one with the little 3 legged buck and his big buck buddy we watched all winter.

They are still pretty hungry in early May, big "Swoops" growing his next set in velvet, little "3 legs" starting his first set of antlers.

The bears are out! Some more turkeys, wife and I each got 2, (not over feed, we are legal beagles), one of "my" groups that survived another winter shedding their winter coat, and "Swoops" velvet antlers getting bigger. Things are starting to green up, deer visits are dropping off, I stop the feed in mid June.

Bears are still coming around, velvet buck, pretty red summer coat. They are eating the oats that are now growing that the turkeys did such a good job planting for me!

Big velvet buck again. He was there a lot eating the oats and milo that was growing. I never saw him during hunting season. Damn coyote. Me setting up bear bait site. 1st bear hit. They never came during legal time, always at night. I've got to change up the times that I put out bait.

Bears can read game law books and calenders. Daylight, but on a Sunday, no Sunday hunting in Maine, ha, ha!! The spike horn buck coming in to the scent dripper and my doe bleats, I am off to the left in a pop up blind. The camera got the picture when I shot him. That was the only legal buck I saw during all of archery and rifle season. I have photos of bigger bucks coming to the scent dripper before and after I took that one, but all at night. Nocturnal bastards, ha, ha!!!

So I'm hoping that a bunch of you folks will post some of what you think are the best pics from your game cams on this thread, and keep it going. I for one would really like to see whatever you all get pictures of in the rest of the country or world. I know that there are many places where deer are so common that they are a bother, but around here it's still quite a thrill to get sightings of these nice bucks and doe groups. Let's see what you have in your neck of the woods!

If you want to embed photos so they show up as full size right in your post, there are quite a few ways to do that. If you currently don't back up your photos online anywhere, you can use the GC site to host them. okbear did a tutorial thread on that. Just don't use photobucket, obviously. But if you're like me and use Google Photos or something similar and automatically back up your photos, the hosting is already done for you. Embedding in the thread is the easy part then. PM me if you want more help with that.

It's the first time I set it up like that. The darn raccoons will clean out a site every night. The pvc pipes on the cables will turn when they get on them, and the corrugated plastic "overhang" folds down when they put their weight on it, if they get that far and they slide right back onto the ground. Next season I am going to try and get video of that, it's hilarious! The raccoons still get plenty of snacks, I always leave some on the ground. They track the sticky stuff out through the woods on their feet and the bears follow that scent right to the bait. I just have to change up my game plan somehow so maybe they will come during legal time more often.

This is the last pic I got of "3 Legs" on 10-31-17. We had not had any photos of him since sometime in May or June, I think. I was figuring that one of those bears that were hanging around this spring or that coyote had got him, but all of a sudden, there he was again. My neighbor called him in with a doe bleat on Sat. 11-4-17 about 10 or 11 am I think. I heard the shot. He's a high school student, I am pleased for him. I'm also glad that "3 Legs" didn't suffer. He had a pretty hard time getting thru the snow this past winter.
