Viewing Pictures from Game cameras

7 posts in this topic

I am thinking about getting a Game Camera but don't want to spend an arm and a leg right away. One I was looking at was a Moultrie I40 or D40 with neither has a LCD for viewing. Could I take a digital picture camera that reads SD and bring it out to look at on? I know this is a stretch but my Lowrance IHunt has a SD card in it so could I view it on there? Don't know much about game cameras so any help would be appreciated.

What I do is have extra cards, so I just goto each camera, swap in a clean card, and then take it home and view it on my computer - no standing out in the buggy woods. In order to do that, you need a card reader, get them at Best Buy or on Ebay, most just plug into the USB port. Get the type of reader that reads multiple cards formats, you never know when you'll get a different camera that has a different type of card. Right now some of my cameras use SD cards and the others use Compact Flash cards.

Yea, just bring out your digital camera if you want. We switch our cards out and view them at home - or in the shack if I bring my laptop computer.

I see the point of the question, cause if I was trying a new spot I don't want to leave my camera in a bad spot for another week if there wasn't anything worth photographing in the first camera set.

If you have a digi cam that accepts SD cards than you can view your game camera pics on your digi cam. That is a great idea. My camera does use SD cards and so does my GPS so I have plenty of cards, but I don't have any cameras (yet), so location is important. I will only check mine maybe every two weeks so if a spot is not producing I don't want to leave my only camera there for another two weeks to take pictures of nothing.

The problem is I have a desktop that has a card reader however that will be 130 miles away. I want to see the results on site but don't want to pay for a LCD on the game camera. My problem is I have a XD camera and the Game Camera is SD. Will pictures show up on my SD GPS? That would really be sweet if it did. This way I could make a lot more adjustments out in the woods and not have to wait so long with having to go back to a computer.

I highly doubt they would show up on your GPS. If you'd like to try, put your card in the card reader, upload a few photos to it and try it. Your GPS doesn't have software to read .jpeg files though so I doubt it will work.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
