Hadley's 2012 Most Wanted Hit List
The images below are were taken in 2012 at Hadley Creek using Reconyx trail cameras. Reconyx, a Hadley Creek sponsor, has been in the business of designing, manufacturing and selling digital infrared game cameras since 2002 and is recognized as the worldwide industry leader. Check back frequently as the season progresses. Pick out your favorites and see how many on our hit list get added to our photo gallery.
A question we're frequently asked when hunters see our photo gallery for the first time is "Did you kill all your big bucks?" We answer "no", that with our management plan, 140 minimum and 30,000 plus acres that our trophy quality improves each year, but even with showing our kills each and every season its sometimes a hard message to sell.
Our Reconyx Trail Cam pages give us additional hard evidence as we show our Most Wanted Hit List photos year by year allowing hunters to compare and see how many are killed during each season. If you check you'll find in a good year we'll kill 25% to 30% of our Hit List deer…and since winter kill is not a factor in our area that means the majority of the Hit List bucks from the previous year will be here with even bigger racks next fall.
Those of you who run trail cameras will appreciate that with over 30,000 free range acres to cover its impossible to capture even a fraction of our bucks on camera. And yet we go through literally hundreds of thousands of photos and only a very select few of the shooter buck photos we capture make the cut for our Most Wanted Hit List page.
