A live deer cam allows viewers to watch deer enter an area and feed from an automatic feeder. These deer are not caged and free to roam, so viewers see them acting naturally. Many feeders also attract a number of other animals, such as raccoons, birds and birds.
As of September 2015, the live deer cam at SportsmansParadiseOnline.com, which is set up north of Atlanta, Georgia, has a set schedule of feeding times for deer, which allows viewers to know when to tune in. While most deer feed at dawn or dusk, they can show up at any time. The live deer cam at DeerTrail.us also features a chat room where users can discuss what's happening.
