As I was hanging my last camera about an hour ago after some struggles as to where to put it I finally found a spot. In a small 100yd wide finger of woods that divides 3 clover fields with a stream running thru the middle, so anyway I got it all set up, secured (strapped to tree, no screws) I began the 1/2 mile walk back to the truck and not 10 steps out of the woods I saw a few deer feeding not 150 yds away from where I was just working.. They never cease to amaze me. 3:00 in the afternoon and they're already out and about just grazing away.

Im a little leary about trail cams. To many thieves out there.But those pics their putting out are a lot better than what they used to be. So if it wasnt for the thievs Id have a couple cams for sure. Keep posting pics for us.

Yeah I worry about thieving of my cameras also, I used to attach a chain to them and lock them to the tree, but I realized all they would have to do is bust the little pieces of plastic holding them fast and the cam would still be in fine shape so I don't do that any more. I used to have a lock box for my one camera but one day I forgot to take my key with when I went to get my SD card from it...... Long story short, the lock box didn't make it. Which was way too easy to break into in the first place. So now I just put my cameras out and hope no dishonest people wander by. I figure if they want it they're gonna get it no matter what I do.

Also they have a camera out nowadays that is fairly theif proof, I haven't gotten one yet but am looking at one very seriously. It has the actual camera part but then where the SD card sits is in a sort of receiver with an antenna which you can put up to I think 30 yards away I think you can even bury it.. so it comes in two parts camera and picture holder. So in the case some thief would steal your camera..... You would have pictures of him sitting 30 yds away to take the authorities. They are called SPY POINT trail cameras.

Any time. Yeah I can't even explain how much better my scouting experiences are since I use trail camera's takes a lot of the guess work out of it. Spots can look amazing but if you don't have four legged evidence you can't be as sure.

if you go to products and then click on trail cameras, you should one that says cellular/wireless. That's the one you need, the Tiny W2 and Tiny W3 are the ones with the separate picture checking station. The LIVE and LIVE 3G send the images directly to a cell phone.

I am utterly amazed at the amount of bucks that I have captured on my trail camera so far, and the best part is they're consistent. The one that I think is going to be a beauty this year has already developed brow tines and a good bit of his main beam. Well I'm sure its more now as I haven't checked my cams in over a week. And antlers can grow up to 1/2'' a day. Cant wait to see his full potential. I will start posting pics when they are a little more developed. Maybe mid to late June.

Thats too bad. I've got pictures of several people on my cams so far this year.... Mostly Amish though lol. But I did get pics of some turkey hunters. Thankfully they just looked at it and kept on going.
