Welcome to the ESPN Outdoors Wildlife Camera
This page highlights the wildlife on a food plot we have planted specifically for our readers to enjoy while sitting at their computers.
There's nothing like being on a deer stand to relieve the stress of the work week. Now smack dab in the middle of the work week, we're bringing the deer stand to you.
We've been monitoring these cameras for about a week and already they have become a regular part of our viewing. Deer and turkey are using the plot on a regular basis. In that short time period, we've viewed two bucks sparring, a flock of Jakes running a couple of does around and numerous deer coming in and out of the area.
Just like on a hunt, we don't know when these deer, turkeys and other wildlife will show up. But like sitting on your stand, morning and evenings are good choices for watching. Even with those peak times, we've seen deer and turkeys visit at all hours of the day and night.
We've taken approximately 3 acres, planted it with BioLogic New Zealand Clover Plus, added a couple of corn feeders, two video cameras with infra-red technology, three motion-sensitive game cameras and sweetened the whole plot with a variety of C'Mere Deer products.
Because the wildlife that appears on this camera is free-range and easily accessible, we can't reveal the location other than to say it's in the center of the country.
Our expectations are to keep the lines open on this plot from now until May with a continuous stream 24 hours a day, seven days a week. During that time you should be able to watch deer, turkey, possibly bear and other wildlife as they go about their day and night of living in the wild.

This is a new project and as it progresses we will be making tweaks to the process. For instance, we expect our night viewing capabilities to improve and we hope to keep you informed of activity through Twitter, so sign up for those if you like what you see.
And as the season wears on we will be constantly updating the game-camera galleries from this plot to give you an idea of the type game that is using them on a regular basis.
