Why doesnt anyone post any trail cam pics?

12 posts in this topic

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.

Last year I started putting them over my mineral sites and that will give you a very good indication on what is in your area.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
