      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Why doesnt anyone post any trail cam pics?

Recommended Posts

Wondering why no one is posting any trail cam pics on here yet? I just put my first camera out this evening right after seeing about 10 does, and a bachelor group of I think 4 bucks;3 for sure. One nice one for sure, but couldnt really see the other well/long enough to judge. I know there are alot of people with pics from this summer. WE would love to see some nice bucks in velvet!

Cool, I put one out last week, I just checked it yesterday! NICE BUCK on there. Wow, he's a shooter for sure, I have to buy a nother SD card so I can just swap it out and bring one home to load on the computer.

I just put up my Moultrie yesterday also, I'll give it a few days and go check them both out again I should be able to post them this weekend!!!!

What Moultrie do you have? I have a D40 I think I just bought it on saturday and put it out on Sunday. Hopefully I get something on there. I put some salt blocks infront of the camera to hopefully get them to stop for a bit.

I've got the same Codeman, great camera IMO. Trigger time on it is pretty good even compared to the higher end cameras. I have had the best luck with the cam 7-8ft off the trail and pointed at a bit of an angle up or down the trail, so you aren't getting pictures of deer butts.

The other cam I got is a Wildview 4, pics look decent on it but the trigger time is a little slower. Can't wait to go look at them this weekend.

They definitely make scouting a lot more fun. Good purchase!

Good deal. I'm debating on getting another one. I sold my pickup so figured can buy some hunting stuff... Do you put any food infront of yours or just put it on a good trail?

I usually stick with just the trails on the way to the food source, but I do have one over an established mineral lick this year to see if I can get more photos. They do, however, realize that something isn't natural right away and may even shy away from it for a bit but after a while they get used to it.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
