Trail Camera Pictures

1,132 posts in this topic

Something I want to clarify again....And this is not a bigfoot topic :)

People have claimed the trail cams make noise , and it scares Bigfoot away....Well , if a Buck can eat by one , and not know a mountain lion is stalking it...I would have to say...Uhm , no...

Not my pic :)

LOL....I was going to point out , if most trail cams are like this one ( they are not , you get what you pay for) , than that would explain all the fuzzy , out of focus pics :)

It was a raccoon :tu:

There is a daytime pic of a Biff here somewhere, sorry, cannot find it right now, it seems to be taken with the same cam you have, the daylight pics seem s a little clearer, unfortunately in the specimen provided, either we are dealing with Pareidolia or the subject is far to distant for the equipment to focus, but the overall quality seemed acceptable for close encounters in the day.

I'll keep on the search engine and try to find it.

I think you may be refering to the "crow" that flew close to the camera....We will see :)

a lot of those trail cams have a delay between the sensor being tripped and the photo being taken.

Have to wonder whether some blank photos arent from something close to the camera triping (paw, tail etc) it but moving out of shot before the pic is taken

You are correct , shutter time....Delay time , something to that effect...Mine is set at "1" , that is one pic every second when the motion detector sees something move...If something runs by , you will not get a picture , just a picture of a empty field :)

I'll have to check up on this over time. I hope you can get something good, even if it is some pretty sweet shots of the local fauna! Imagine if you, on our own forum, caught the best image ever! Your toothy avatar would become a legend!!!! :tu:

I think as many as possible should join in on this. It's like X-mas morning everytime you walk up to the camera and find you have pictures.

Are you baiting your cam out? At first I tried throwing around some of that catfish bait from a bag....only attracted some buzzards.

I really hope more people get involved with this, whether we get a pic of BF or just some racoons, it's still a good effort.

I love trail cams. The comment about christmas morning is correct. Everytime you check the camera you could have nothing at all or something very interesting. Just a word of advice on trail cams. All are not made the same. Some are junk and others are very good and most of the time you get what you pay for. Obviously digital is the way to go 100%. They are silent and take better quality pictures. Make sure it has a good quality camera in it. The cheaper cameras, with exceptions of course, will be very frustrating. The shutter speeds are slow, you get a lot of pictures of nothing or a deer's butt moving out of the frame. You don't need the most expensive but do yourself a favor and get a quality trail cam. Also, put the camera out in a likely spot. Make sure there are signs of animal activity around. Putting it out around a good food source is always a good idea. Of course if you can make your own food source by pouring a bag of corn on the ground, where legal of course, that is all that much better. Also most cameras have a heat sensor on them so do not point them facing into a rising or setting sun. You will end up with a lot of sunrise and sunset pictures but no animals. Only put the camera up about 3ft off the ground. Most people put them up to high and miss some smaller animals. One of the most important things I can add is always carry extra batteries. Trail cams are notorious for eating batteries fast, so make sure you always have extras and of the right kind. Some trail cams are very picky about batteries. I have one that will only work right with duracels. Its strange but true. Anyway, I hope some of this helps.
