Make sure you have it pointed north or south so it isnt facing direct sunlight. Place it about eye level to yourself on the tree, that way you get good range in your pics.
Try pointing the lens north, pointing any other direction will have sun in the lens at some part of the day. Set it to 1-2 pics per activation, make sure there are no brush, grass or limbs that will move in the wind casuing false triggers. Put your camera on an active trail or where two trails intersect, a trail that goes to water source. I've had some good bear and deer on cameras pointing down the bank of a stream or pond.
Do all animals walk in a perfect direction for a north or south angled camera? No. Position the camera out of direct sunlight. You will have better luck if the camera is pointed at an angle to the game trail. Pointing down the game trail works to. This gives the camera time to react to the animal and gives the machine time to work. Make sure there is nothing that waves infront of the camera causing a false pic. Position the camera about waist high on the tree or post. Play with differnt angles and settings.
