    I have oftened wonder if the flash bothers them? My daughter says well it be like lighting. And I said lighting dont hit in same spot twice let alone a hundred times. Anyone one have any thoughts on the flash and its affect?

    While I think they are aware, alert.. but they condition to it fast.
    Deer seem to flinch like a deer ducking after a arrow release. But they don't seen to run off.
    Reasonwe feel that way is particularly on a lick or scrape the same critters show up on the Hit Parade time after time..

    The Tresspassers and Thieves looking to steal your cam sure have no trouble locating the best hid unit.. with a flash guiding the way.
    We are switching to all Infrared for anything we can't watch. It sure as heck scares the Baaa gezzus out of folks that just stumble on to it.. based on the initial pics and the follow ups ... some funny stuff from time to time.

    I don't think the flash bothers them much, especially if a food source is close to the camera. Anyone that does not think lightening hits the same place more than once needs to look up the man who was hit 7 times during his lifetime.:eek:oooh:

    LOL, but was he standing in the same spot all 7 times? I think I'd find a different spot to stand, LMAO!
