Default Trail Cam Placement?

I have a spot where there are two seperate trails within 100-150 yds away from each other. Is it a waste to put two trail cams that close together?

Thanks guys or gails

I don't feel it is a waste. You may have totally different deer walking on each trail. With all the science and studys done they are still wild animals that can do just about anything. The more eyes you have in the woods the better.

i agree...not a waste at all. I use two different cameras at my mineral lick sites and they catch different deer all the time.

Also if your like me and your trying to fine tune their movement getting ready for early bow season, it is helpful to have cams in the same area so you can see which trails they move in and out of the most.

No it isn't a waste. For patterning deer, we put our trail cameras on all well-used trails going into and out of food sources, as well as entrance and exit points.

Here is an article that might help you.

It is definitely a waste if you forget the batteries. Otherwise it is not a waste.

I have not done that but I have forgot to turn it on. You got all the excitment to see what is on it and then that. That is a real killer.
