Trail Camera Questions

Recommended Posts

David Frank

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,

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.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
