set up your trail cameras.....?????? I moultrie 200 digital for CHRISTmas last year and put it up right away and took it down in March.

When do you guys like to set them back out?????

I can not decide if I want to go check it when it is hot. I am thinking about waiting until september when I set up my stands.......

Mine were set April 1. Looking for fawns and checkin how they are hitting blocks and food.
Set just to catch activity, so longer time between single pics.
I'll be moving them in the woods and on trails beginning of June looking for buck travel areas again.

I'll set mine around the middle of July. I got two of them at the end of July last year, and I feel I was JUST a tad too late. As soon as the bucks near full potential on their racks, that's when I wanna see some pics.

I think Clansey gets his out a little earlier than that.

I have mine up year round usually. The only time I take them down is during turkey season simply because I don't want some wandering mushroom hunter to stumble upon them.
I was actually thinking earlier tonight that I may get some fresh batteries and get on it tomorrow.

I like to have them up around this time throughout the antler growing period personally, I think it's cool to get pictures of bucks in different stages of growth. Hopefully I'll have some decent pics soon!

I just replentished my salt & mineral again last night and will have my camera out in a couple of weeks. I took a large % of my pics last year in July and August while the bucks were running together.

GHunter's pics of the bucks he has been seeing convinced me to get my cams out today. I laid out 50 pounds of salt, split over two places, and I put a box of A&H Washing Soda over the lick WITH my camera.

I've still got one camera here at the house, but I'm convinced that I may miss out on a little if I don't get this one out there now.

I also made a little clover food plot infront of one of the stands quick.

I'm SET UP! :D

DEER! YOU BETTER WATCH OUT! Cause I ain't gonna just hit you with my car this time!

Rat,

Back when mommy and daddy paid the bill for the lights over my head, I used to go on those little photo journeys, and I loved them.

But, now that I have to foot the bill to get by, my hunting and fishing experiences have turned more into (not totally) meat gathering.

April: get turkey, May: get crappie, June: get catfish......etc.

Ok.. b4 we get back to the trailcam deal, humor me with
what I was alluding to...

This is how I like my lady to spend her time when we are
camping... got a travel trailer that takes some work to
set up... as most rv folks will attest to... She gets to relax
and the hammock is the FIRST thing that gets setup.
