PostSubject: how high for the camera   Sun Jan 29, 2012 7:52 am

Somebody gave me a Ont out of Doors mag for Xmas and I was reading about trail cams. It said, never put them more than 2 or 3 feet off the ground? I thought, Hmmm mine are all 4 or 4 and a half feet off the ground, maybe even 5
So, I moved one down. Got a lot of pics of deers backs or just the heads. I think it is easier to aim the camera when I can look down the site line. So, I'm not sure why I'm supposed to keep it below 3 feet?



The first pic is before I moved it and the others are after I lowered it. Had at least 30 pics of the 2 bucks fighting but none turned out very good cause the camera wasn't lined up right.

Everybody has their own idea about how things should be, those guys in the mags think they know it all when really they don't. I read the same artical and put one of mine to that hieght, it was a crap shoot for me as well. 4-5 ft is a much better level for cams. Heres why....... You can get pics from farther out, Moose pics will have the head included not just the belly and feet, also if there are poachers or treaspassers you will get the head shot of them as well.

3 feet is rediculously low unless the round slopes down and away. The more important factor is the angle that the camera is on the tree. I usually set mine to about the 4 foot mark. I have varied that depending on terrain but not by much. I have put camera's way up a tree facing bear baits and had success.
