Mount them higher & angled downward. You avoid livestock and tend to get better/brighter nighttime pics.
I did that on one of them this time. The other is strapped to a rock.
I don't Break the rules, I Modify them.
You're making me squirm in my armchair with those dandy bucks!
It's hard to mount those trail cameras high enough so that a bored horse doesn't nibble on it.
I've put a cpl up using a climbing stand before. I wanted a coverage of my bow stand set-up and the camera actually picked up everything within 30yds.....then I changed locations when nothing close to what I'd shoot came through in over a month.
I'm seeing deer and bulls that a cpl guys are [seeing/getting TC pics] of in NV and it looks like the antlers are coming along quite well.
I heard rumor that quite a few of them were big back in early-mid June.
I can't wait to get a look, 5 more working days and I'm gone for 18. I'll try and get some good pics in my areas so the muzzy and rifle guys can see how growth is going. By looking at IKIC's pics I won't be disappointed.
