I ran a couple over mineral for a few weeks, they all look at it and seem to know its there. Now I'll wait and set a couple up on breeding scrapes in Oct.


I think there are times when you can use them and times when you cant or shouldn't for example. I set up my camera the other day on a well used ATV trail, next to an apple tree. In two days i got pictures of three different family members on ATV's and my brother on his dirtbike. But i Also got a picture each night of two good shooter bucks comin out of the swamp. It was after hunting hours but i know exactly which bedding area they came from Because of my spring scouting. These bucks were there both nights and were not bother by the camera because of all of the human scent to start with.

But to answer the question, we have 5

Just purchased a Moultrie I-40 this past weekend and can't wait to check it tomorrow to see what has come in and to make sure that I have it set at the right level. I put mine next to a pond just to see what is on the property. This is my only camera.

I have four cameras, if I had deeper pockets there would be more. Nothing more exciting then plugging that SD card in the computer.

3 Cuddes, 3 ScoutGuards, 1 Moultie I40, and 1 PlotWatcher

Awesome tools in my book. I try not to check them more than every 25-30 days though... even better if you can do it during a thunder shower!

x2. This time of year I generally use them only in areas that I don't plan to hunt for information gathering and deer behavior studies. I make a note of anything interesting I find and try to use it in the following year's hunt. For me, picture taking is fun and keeps me in hunting mode since my approach to camera dropping/collecting is similar to the way I hunt.

3 wildview ones

they are nice enough to take decent pics but won't break me if one gets stolen.

I just bought a Bushnell Trophy Cam, but pictures are blurry with motion so I'm going to return it.
