Tip & How-To about Video Cameras
Trail cameras are great for tracking game and giving you a leg up in your game hunting. But if the camera's aren't set up properly you will not be getting the images you want or be able to track the game you want. Here are just a few tips to be aware of when it comes to setting up your trail cameras.
It is recommended that you test your camera in the backyard to make sure that you are familiar with the equipment and its usage.
Once you have a grasp of how the system works you are ready to head out and set up. Start by setting up with camera between 10 and 15 feet from the target area at about waist height.
A few things to consider about where you set up the camera are the stout because you want to make sure that the tree wont move too much. Make sure that nothing is obstructing the camera's view because this may cause false triggers and obscure your image. If you can find somewhere that doesn't have a lot going on in the backdrop is the best, because too many limbs in the background can obscure the view of antlers.
When possible you should set up the cameras facing north to avoid getting sun glare. Stay away from areas that tend to get a lot of fog.
After the camera has been up for a few weeks you should have some good shots of the deer you are tracking and will have an idea for where your stand should go and when the deer are going to be there.
