I have recently acquired some new land very close to a local wood and there are a good few muntjac about. I have put up a high seat in a safe location and also a trail cam out to see what is about. I captured a few nice pics of a buck but he is following a hedge line down not really safe enough to shoot (not that I am happy with anyway). I set about and put a pheasant feeder out (just a blue barrel type with wheat in it and a salt lick on the side) and some windfall apples along that hedge with plans it would start feeding on it/get used to it and then I could start moving it away to a safer and better point of shot. I set the trail cam up watching it and he just ignores it and walks past the same route 5yards from it at 6am most mornings.
I dont know if it is just the fact that it's that time of the year where food is plentiful with everything being ripe so it's just not hungry enough but I would have thought he'd be all over the tasty apples?
What are your thoughts on tips on tempting these munties?
