Question by jeffrey.cote23@.... Uploaded on July 19, 2011
i check mine once a week...if i dont have any pics in an entire week, its time to move the camera.
Cool thank you mine has been out for about ten days so you would check it then?
We move our T-cams after 7to10 Days depending on the weather.
I just went and checked it and had one nice deer on there.
do you have multiple pics of the good deer or just one photo over the course of the ten days?
if you have a lot of pictures of him in that location, hang a stand...if its just one pic i would move the camera and put it in a location where im seeing a lot of him.
I tend to let mine sit a bit longer then anyone, but I want to gather data and not disturb the area too much by going weekly. I alternate days and times of when I check as well. I also invested in the internet way of checking so not to disturb certain areas.
I know I will get pictures of deer, its the certain ones that I want is who, where, when as for I scout for.
Time of year is also a issue of when I use cameras.
I check it once a week, and try to do it midday instead of hunting hours(dawn and dusk). Usually i have two or 3 out at different locales but the thieves have me down to one currently, which i will hang as soon as this darned heat wave is over. There are some spots i will hunt during the rut even if i've not gotten a picture of a buck. The field of view of a cam is not that large.
I check and move my cameras way to often. I wish I had the patience to let it set a week or two.
Checking once a week is sufficient. If you're not getting pictures, then you likely need to move them. To start off, concentrate your efforts on easily identifiable travel corridors.
thank you everyone for all your help and to answer your question scratchgolf72 its only one pic but im pretty sure i know where his normal route is im gonna hang it there tomorrow.
