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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
