The rut approaches: game camera favorites to inspire your next deer hunt

Biologists use motion-sensing cameras to inventory wildlife across the state. This method is proving particularly useful in the Panhandle, where dense tree canopies and regular cloud cover make traditional, aerial surveys difficult.
