I'd say that tree is working good for you, deer like people don't always care for a flash in their face especially older bucks.
I checked one of my cameras today I had hanging in a power line on my property and nothing been close to it in the last week, no tracks in the snow anywhere close by so I brought it home, the snow is just to deep right now to deal with it.

It doesnt work on flash, unless you are referring to the IR emitters, it does not have a visible flash for night time. It is strange how their eyes light up tho. I guess the mirrors at the back of their eyes can reflect IR as well as visible light.

I think the deer get used to the IR going off much more easily than they would having a big flash. I noticed when I am looking through the night time shots that ALL animals if they are looking at the camera are visible. That's one thing that helps me locate them in the grainy black and white shots. Sometimes I'll see raccoons and rabbits that I might not otherwise see.

I finally got back to the camera I thought maybe was buried under snow, it wasn't, the hemlocks protected it! This is a natural funnel area with a creek that's 3/4 frozen over behind the camera and a steep bank in front of it. This camera is a very fast one, works perfect on trails.
All of the deer I got pictures of look very healthy.

Speaking of Well-Fed, I was noticing a lot of shrub damage in my garden last year so I decided to investigate---caught the culprit in the act!!!

Then there was the incident with my tomato garden. I always heard that deer don't eat tomatoes. Boy was I wrong---if you look closely, there are TWIN bucks with their heads crossed chomping away. I lost about 30% of my plants that summer.

They're like locust, they'll eat almost any plant, I have a friend that raises an sells plant's at the farmer's market In Ithaca Ny they would feed very well in his gardens so he put up a motion activated light, they liked it, they could see what they were eating so much better, so he got a motion activated water sprinkler system, they liked getting a shower an cooled down while they were eating. Then he got a dog, they figured out how to get around it and kept eating. Then he started shooting them, that worked but then he had to deal with them. He gave up.

I lost all of my tomatoes last year but we had a bad blight, most people in the area had the same problem.

There are so many anecdotal remedies...and I have too many plants and shrubs to fence everything off. Is there anything that works well to repel them that is easy and effective? Like sprinkling blood meal around? (I don't have a dog, which is probably why that big 8 point stays around)

Good question, the local garden center sells a deer repellent but I have no idea how well it works. Rabbit's are our big problem, deer do wander into garden sometimes but the bunny's think it a smorgasbord just for them.

Don't laugh---but is this a doe or a shed buck? I thought it was maybe a pregnant doe because of the fullness under the belly but then I saw the prominent tarsal gland which someone told me was characteristic of bucks. I've been waiting for my big buck to shed so I can look for antlers but now when he does I may not recognize him. This deer was solitary too and the does always seem to come in groups.

Besides the obvious, how do bucks and does differ in appearance once antlers shed?

Pretty much all does have that tarsal gland spot. The only sure way I know to tell the difference.... from afar.... is look for the antler spots where the antlers should be. Does will be smooth headed. I dont think I have ever taken a pic of a buck with shed antlers, they get rather reclusive when they loose their antlers.

In the 2 1/2 years that we've been on this lease, we've never seen hogs on this side of the rail road tracks. This big guy showed up Easter Morning. He didn't show up again after that, but I'm betting he's still in the area.
