Trail Camera Questions

2 posts in this topic

How Close to a trail does everyone hang their Trail Cameras? I am new to this and plan to hang mine within the next few days.

I just purchased a Moultrie game watcher 2.1 from walmart for $98. Does anyone have any experience with this camera. Any tips on placement and use would be great. Also, does anyone know where to get a rechargeable 6V battery or have any other tips on extending battery life?

Thank You,

Dave

I have the cheaper Moultrie camera. It takes ok pictures but it has a slow shutter speed, about 4 seconds. You need to face it looking down the trail or over a salt block. Look at the recipe that BLB has posted. Definately go with the rechargeable batteries, it will eat up the regular ones in two weeks, even the Duracells!! I bought my rechargeables at Cabelas online. I have two batteries and two SD cards and just swap them out once a week. You'll also need an SD card reader. Look to Ebay for the cards and reader.

Its an ok camera, I'd buy another one.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
