New to the forum, already missing the deer season and have curiosity to quell. This was a great non-typical I was chasing all season in a bow-only area of Ithaca. Anyone know or hear of a non-typical of this caliber being killed? I'll be out scouting for him aggressively soon enough. Thanks!
I think the last 2 pics are of daddy. Looks to be a much bigger bear than momma with the cubs. Any opinions on how big daddy might be? Thought I'd add a video of the 2 cubs fighting/playing with each other.

Geno’s Cabin Fever thread got me checking my tail camera photos and thinking about throwing up a quick contest pretty much anyone can enter. The 2013 Deer season is coming up fast, it will be here sooner than you think. What is better than a brand spanking new Trail Camera to get out in the woods to get you in the mood along with some other great items.
Rules: Post a reply on this thread below. ONE post per person. The post must include a picture of a deer you have either shot / harvested with a short blurb of the story behind it AND / OR a trail camera picture of a deer you saw, missed, wanted in the last few years with a short blurb of the story behind it. As far as the short story, it can be a simple two sentence thing, or feel free to go into detail.
Can’t get any simpler than that. Entries will be accepted up until Friday May 31st, 2013 at 11:59 ET. The contest list will then be posted with all contestants along with a unique number assigned to each contestant.

Recap of prizes
Bushnell 8 MP Trophy Cam Trail Camera
The Bushnell 8 MP Trophy Cam Trail Camera (Brown Case) is water- and snow-resistant, functions quite well even in extreme temperatures (-5 to 140deg. F) and is ideal for shooting game and wild life. It can be quickly mounted on tree trunks, posts and other supports using the adjustable web belt provided. Recording high-quality still images at 8 MP with 1-second trigger speed, the trail camera also features Field Scan, a time lapse feature that clicks images at pre-set intervals ranging from 1 minute to 60 minutes.
Field Scan is not triggered by game and covers a long range (which may be out of the PIR range) and a large area as well. The adjustable PIR (Passive Infrared) sensor is motion-activated by movement of game at a distance of up to 45' (13.7 m). The camera simultaneously captures Field Scan images along with Live Trigger images and in multi-image mode it clicks up to 3 images per trigger. If you are looking for video, the Trophy Cam shoots Widescreen, VGA and QVGA clips, with audio capture making the experience vivid.
Night vision ability is up to 45' (13.7 m) and the 32 Black LEDs acting as an invisible flash prove their worth when visible flash is a game deterrent. The trophy cam shoots color videos during the day and B&W during the night. The B&W text LCD is meant for only displaying the menu text to help you with the setting and programming. Connect the trophy cam to an external monitor and you can watch several days of video footage in minutes using the variable speed playback feature.

Congratulations - Winners will be PM'd.
Heading to my property this weekend.... Can't wait to check the trail cam's! Hoping to see some new bucks in the area too since this is the time of year last year we started to see some new guys roaming around. My brother is meeting me up there as well, thinking of throwing up a stand quick if the weather holds out. I would have liked to have had it up already but it is what it is. Then going to take the wife and baby apple picking and hopefully find some pumpkins too.
Going to practice with the bow at the further distances as well with my brother, and get those broad heads on there to take a few shots.
Sooooooooo excited for this season!
