How do you set your cameras?
Reading another post got me to thinking. How do you guys set up your cameras?
Mine are set depending on the situation. If I have my cams on a scrape, I usually set my cameras to take a picture followed by a 20 or 40 second video. If I am setting on a trail or a travel corridor, I run strictly video.
When winter sets in and I start feeding, I run strictly pics with no video because the deer are usually hanging around the camera for quite a while. A couple of the cameras that I have now are even down to 1 pic per trip of the camera.
Also, when I am setting my cams on a trail, I try to find a junction of as many trails as I can and place the camera back a little further. This has seemed to work very well over the last couple of years. When I set on a scrape, I try to set the cam a little closer (maybe 10-20 feet)
Never underestimate pride; it can be a Man's greatest strength or his worst enemy
