Trail cam tip

Nice yote pics chuck. I'd shoot the first 2 but that third one......well, ya better let him go.

Just a tip, if you'll take the time to remove those branches, you'll be amazed at how much better your flash gets to the trail. The limbs are absorbing the flash & reflecting back, thus your camera is focusing more on them than the subject you want.

The other thing that sometimes happens with branches or weeds is that as the sun heats them up, it's just enough that when the wind blows them, it'll trigger your camera. Then you get false triggers. Most pir's in the cameras are designed to trigger with temperature change & movement combined.

yea I will admit I am still a newbie at trail cams. I had to clear alot of sticks out of the way just to get a shot at all, I think the sun/weed thing happened to me on my other cam as I had a roll of film of nothing:roll2:
thanks for the tips.

I have 2 of the 35mm stealth cams. just when I get my film procesed I get the disk with it also.
I'd like to go digital but I dont own land so my cams are on public land and it would upset me enough to lose the cams I got much less more expensive models.
