Default Trail cameras and success?

Do you think trail cameras help you put the buck on the ground or are they just a source of entertainment.

I don't think they help put him on the ground, but they surelygive you an idea of what's running around your hunting area, that's for sure. I'm like a small child at Christmas when I go to check my camera!

If you see a big buck with your cameras it can help you stay in your stand a bit longer. It can also do the opposite, if you don't see any big bucks on camera you might leave your stand a little earlier because you don't think you have a chance of seeing a big buck.

It's easier for me to stay longer if I know that there is a big buck in the area.

hunting in the West..i don't think they help you put one on the ground...but i do feel 100% that they give you a better idea of what they do, patterns, activities, times of movement..etc..etc....anything to help you put the puzzle together..

During the middle of the summer an late summer you will find me standing in Walmart or going through the pics sitting at the computer. Ilook at the pics an think this might just happen an soon. Well, then I stop an think those cameras arethere from daylightto dark seven days a week, just for3 or 4 pics of that buck a week. Then, you add in the extra people at the camp an the atvs moving around an guess what. He is off course for the rest of the year. But looking at the pics sure are fun!!
