8 Deer Hunting Tips: How to get better deer pictures by 4G Cellular Camera?
With the development of 4G technology in recent years, 4G cellular deer cameras are becoming popular on market. There is no denying that 4G cellular deer cameras can be an effective scouting tool that can lead to the demise of your biggest whitetail buck ever or simply little more meat in your freezer. However, if your game camera is not used properly, it will not be able to provide anyone. Here are 8 cellular deer camera tips that will help you get better results this year.
Don’t Face To The Sun
Your mother probably told you the same thing. However, when it comes to game cameras, the advice is still cautious. Nothing will drive you crazier than checking your trail camera only to find dozens (sometimes hundreds) of images of nothing but sunlit vegetation. The reason? Heat and movement.
If you set your camera in the face of the sun, your camera will mistakenly think that there are animals around due to temperature changes (rising/falling) and the summer/fall breeze blowing vegetation around. Valuable card space is eaten away and hopes are dashed when you realize there is no trophy buck standing center frame…only brush and sunlight.
While it’s not always possible we prefer positioning trail cameras so that they face North.
Trail cameras are sensitive to heat and movement so do your best not to provide both before a living, breathing animal shows up.
Theft Proof It
It is a sad but true fact. If you hang your game camera in the woods without some protection, it won’t exist when you return. And, while there are a few commercial lockboxes have been designed for your game camera, but most have left a lot of deficiencies. This is true, you can’t really stop a determined thief, but if you have a way, a heavy camera protection box is a good choice. In addition, if you happen to live or hunt in an area with bears, the heavy selection is the only option. You can make it yourself or at a local specialty store.
A bear can destroy a game camera in a matter of seconds if not properly protected.
If you’re not a fan of lockboxes another option is to hang your trail cameras outside the natural line of sight. Specifically, hang your trail cams up high. Not only will this be less obvious when someone walks by but bucks sensitive to cameras will not see them as well. A win-win, plus a unique perspective on a buck’s rack.
Cover Your Stench
The hunting season can take several months, but that mature buck you’re chasing doesn’t know it. When placing and checking the camera, try not to damage the land near the camera or leave traces. Once the smell or traces of the prey activity area change, they will react accordingly and you may be none the wiser to his actions.
To solve this problem, you should be careful every time you check your trail camera. This means making sure you are as scent-free as possible. This includes boots, clothes, and your body. Everything must be clean and odorless. It’s also a good idea to time camera checks just before a big rainfall when possible.
Leave It Alone
One of the biggest mistakes trail camera users make is the lack of control when it comes to checking their camera for images. Sure, it’s exciting to pull SD cards and see big antlers on your computer screen. But if you go to your camera often, the result is that you may scare away mature bucks. Prey is usually very sensitive to the surrounding environment, and if you accidentally leave traces or smells, they will leave the area. And as you already know, mature bucks don’t respond well to the pressure of any sort.
Just because it is summer doesn’t mean that buck doesn’t know your comings and goings. Especially if you’re frequently checking your trail camera. Mature bucks just know.
Trail Cams Batteries
Don’t skimp on your trail camera’s batteries. While you might save a little buying cheap batteries, more expensive Lithiums will last two to three times longer than alkaline batteries. Plus they will perform better in extreme hot and cold weather and you’ll get a little more range from your flash. Longer battery life will allow trail cams to sit longer with fewer visits.
It’s also a good idea to start with a camera model known for good battery life. This, combined with quality batteries, will only make your overall system stronger.
Move It or Leave it
Spend enough time on the trail camera and you will learn the art of knowing when to move it and when to be patient and let it do its job. If you think there is a better position, don’t be afraid to move the camera. Many times, hunters will be longer than they expect the deer to appear suddenly. They may or may not. Much depends on the time of year, the available food, and the stage of covering or rutting. Consider all of these factors before deciding to stay or move.
Location, Location, Location
If the location you choose is not very good, then the best camera and suspension technology in the world will not be too much. Before you hang up the camera, consider the time and goals of the year. Grips, funnels, food sources, game paths, and bedding areas always produce movements, so make sure that the location you choose is associated with one of them in some way.
4G Cellular Deer Camera Software
Trail camera technology has come a long way and with that comes an even bigger need for an easy, convenient method for organizing and breaking down all of the info gathered.
