Trail cameras have been one of the most game changing innovations in the deer hunting world over the last ten or so years. Not only can they provide exciting pictures of wildlife on your land, but they can be a valuable tool for scouting and patterning wily old bucks. Today trail cameras can range in price anywhere from $79 to $600. You can choose from traditional or digital film, flash or no flash, or even with heat detection. The options seem endless as there are dozens of cameras and brands on the market today. Not only can it be difficult to choose the right camera, but it is just as much of a challenge to properly set up and choose the right location to place it. Here is a link to a great video produced by Cabelas providing some helpful tips on setting up your new trail camera.
