Use these trail camera photos taken last week by whitetail experts Craig and Neil Dougherty and their contacts across the country to pattern the deer where you hunt.

Late-season deer are driven by weather conditions. Although doe and fawn groups have been steadily using the plots all fall buck, current usage has dramatically dropped off. Bucks are in a lull period with little activity. During periods of mild weather our cameras showed virtually no buck activity. A couple days of seasonal weather and better bucks showed up on camera. Still these bucks were largely nocturnal. Extended periods of cold nasty weather push bucks over the edge and bring them out during daylight hours.
