I don't do any of that and I still get a deer or three every year. I've killed several deer while smoking. May not get one this year since I quit a few months ago tho.

You'll like the camera. You'll get pics of not only deer but fox, squirrels, rabbits, etc. You might be surprised at what all comes by your stand.

Bought one of those cameras last weekend, although, I didn't get any deer picture I got some real nice ones of me. Next week I'm setting it on a trail with a lot of tracks at the bottom of my ridge, a place where I never have hunted and often wondered what time those deer moved through there. Good investment for a mere fifty bananas. I give it 4****.

We own 1500 acres of managed land here in east texas. We use cameras religously and i stand by them 100 percent we are currently using Moultrie GameSpy 4.0's with an led sensor. The date and time are a must and i love the way these things work. Each year we name the bucks different names so we know what buck to kill and not to kill and to identify that he is no longer on the property when he is taken. These are a great invention and i suggest one to everybody.

In my opinion, its another tool. We have some out where I hunt and it's nice to see what all is coming thru the area but doesn't do anything for you during the hunt. It's cool to see the various animals and the different deer in the area but thats about it. It does help if you are planting different foods in different plots. You can see what they like, at what time of year, etc....

I bought a Bushnell at Walmart for $100. It was extremely unsatisfactory. I took it back and got my money back. I then went to Academy Sports and bought a Moultrie for $90. It is 4 mega pixel. It is a flash type instead of infra red. But I am highly pleased with it. The flash does not bother the deer. A friend of mine has a Cuddebak that he paid $200 for. Mine takes almost as good pictures as his.

Well over the last several weeks I've been through 3 sets of batteries and over 21 days of total use with the cheap WildGame Innovations s1.3 camera which WalMart is selling for $49. What a piece of crap! The 30 sec. delay makes it worthless for anything other than hunting over a feeder, where you don't want 25 pics of the same deer. Unless the deer in your area are extremely vane and searchng for fame and glory, a 30 second delay will allow them to pass right through the target area before being photographed. I am going to buy the Bushnell or some other brand that does not have a pre-programmed delay built in. Also, the quality of the electronics and sensor is such that unless the camera is pointing in the opposite direction of the rising and setting sun, the pictures are "washed-out". Don't waste your money on WildGame Innovations unless you hunt over a feeder.

I want the new Bushnell Trophy cam 5mp it is 6" tall by 4" wide. It is one of the smallest cameras out there. I am just worried that when I put it out the place I would put it I can't get to every week I would be worried all the time that some one would steel it.

A few company's make locking brackets to secure the camera to a tree. Unfortunately there isn't a lock made that can't be breeched or a cable that can't be cut, especially in the woods, where you have all the time in the world. I've known people who have had tree stands stolen - it's best not to worry about it, cause there's not a damned thing you can do to prevent it.

Here's some pictures from my $50.00 Walmart camera. As you can see the deer were pretty nocturnal. There's a pretty nice scrape in front of that oak tree that these deer were visiting.
