Trail Camera Help!!!

Recommended Posts

David Frank

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

So how many times did you post this out here? Do you like getting the same answer in different forums?

My point is post your question in one forum so different people aren't wasting time trying to help when the answer has already been posted. Eventually people will stop responding to your questions if you keep doing multiple postings.

I didn't mean to upset anybody by posting multiple times. I asked in different forums because different people with different input view these forums. Input from multiple people is what I am after. If I will have better luck in just one forum where less people will potentially view my post, then I will do that in the future. There are people who view the archery forum and not necissarily the deer hunting forum and so on....

Once again, I didn't mean to upset you or anyone by posting in different places.... I just thought it would be a more effective way of getting useful input from multiple different knowlegeable people for a beginner who is trying to enjoy the addicting world of trail cameras and archery deer hunting.

David, no problem. Just trying to point out that the best way to get answers to your question is by putting it on the appropriate forum, not multiple forums. If its a generic hunting question, put it on the Hunting forum, if its a bird question, put it on the duck or pheasant forum, if its and archery question put it on the Archery forum, etc. I think most hunters hunt multiple species and will go thru several of the hunting forums. Most people are very willing to help, but if they see the same question many times, or if they've spent time helping/answering a question and then see the answer already typed elsewhere, the next time that guy asks a question, they'll skip it. I know I will. The same as some of the people I feel are 'crackpots', after reading some of their posts, I don't bother to respond.

Good luck with your camera! You used the right term - 'addicting'. Its like hunting, only with a camera! Before you know it, you'll own several!

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
