Default Trail Cams????

Or Photo cams??
Do you put your cam out and try to attract deer to it to get a lot of deer pics? Or do you put your cam out on a trail that you hunt just to see what comes by?
I do the latter. I want to see what " big buck" looks like and about what time he passes through.

Earlier in the year, I did both. I would put some corn on a trail that I knew bucks used. Now, I am just trying to see what comes by these trails naturally.

I would rather have quality instead of quantity, but, this year, I seem to be getting alot of both

I use mine to find out what the deers patterns are and what
type of deer are in my area.

You do both. The key is to keep moving it. The best for real deer movement and time is just putting it on a trail. You can figure out patterns fairly easily that way!

Good Luck!

I put mine out for the first time last Saturday on an apple tree in the middle of a food plot to see what was visiting, tracks showed bear, turkey and deer. I have 9 pics and the camera was bumped....I collected the camera and moved it to another location that I hunt on a trail that is worn to dirt....I want to see what happens by, no bait.....illegal to do within 30 days of the season.
