Trail Camera Help!!

4 posts in this topic

I just checked my trail camera for the first time since hanging it last monday. My memory card was full!! Talk about an excited feeling until I got home and realized there was not a single deer in any of the pictures. I have a moultrie game watcher 2.1 and have pictures every minute for about 3 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the evening of nothing. There were no pics taken at night or in the afternoon. I don't know how to explain this other than maybe the sun was setting off the infrared sensor.

Any help or advice would be nice.

Thank You,

Dave

Was the camera pointing either east or west ?? If so, the sun rise and sunset shadows, triggered the sensor.

It would explain this phenom. in the directions !!

I am still getting used to using my camera in the field also. I have had a few instances with only sunset/rise pics or nothing but bright sun. It can be frustrating and a big let down when viewing. I guess I need to consider placement of the camera better myself. Good luck in the future confused.gif

I have had the same thing happen with my camera. I also found that if the trees or tall grass in front of the camera was moving it would trigger it to take a pic.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.

      How has the bite been this weekend?  Not able to fish this weekend due to graduations.  Shiners still working?

      Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish.  My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.   I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that.  One was 6; the other 8.4.  I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.   We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.
