I personally check mine every two weeks. During season I check it about every week since I am out hunting near my cameras.

You're as guilty as him, probably more.

The reason is because his reply is auto-mated, ie, SPAM auto generated, not done manually.

Key points:

His signature line message and links
His reply doesn't fit the threads he's posted in
It's verbatim from tech.yahoo answers
You replied to a SPAM-bot (LOL!)

Oh, and yes, there are adjustments. Camera may be pointed in the wrong direction and may be adjusted for left-right or height. Also, the movement sensor that triggers the pictures can reveal if nearby brush/grass is triggering the shot. This then means those things may need to be trimmed or camera adjusted.


Hunting Kuk,

I would go check in 2 days. Does frequent the same areas, well, frequently. LOL! If you don't have any pics or very few in a couple of days, that tells you it can stand to be moved somewhere else. Why wait 2 weeks to find out you have your camera in the wrong place? LOL!

Congrat's on the new camera and good luck using it.

First time out I would check in a week, mainly to make sure I turned the dang thing on. With the chips that hold thousands of pictures now I will wait a month or so. I had a essobee steal one of my cameras last weekend, and it was in a place (locked gated, etc) that I didn't think anybody woul bother it.
