Several years ago we explained in depth a common problem of bias with trail cam surveys and were essentially discredited. Well, science can be slow to catch up with valid observations, but at some point the truth comes to the surface. Enjoy pics but scrutinize carefully estimates of herd estimates.....a little common sense goes a long way!
Research has shown that bucks use bait stations at a higher proportion than does and fawns, so camera surveys underestimate the doe and fawn populations. In general, camera surveys underestimate the total deer population.
