Lazy and smart
More of a hobby here in AZ
it’s very hard to harvest off a cam but a fun way to check new country and scout
NOT FOT MULE DEER
What seems to be the problem? The wildlife still have the upper hand. We're coming in to the deer's living room. We're on their turf. The scales are tipped greatly in their favor even with the use of cameras and guns. We don't have their nose, ears, eyes, brain or even their sixth sense! What seems to be the problem?
I use trail cameras for monitoring our deer population and helping to identify mature bucks.
I do not believe they should be used for transmitting real time or near real time information during a hunt.
I am old enough that I have more days in the woods prior to the development of trail cameras than I care to admit. I still believe the skill and joy of hunting is when the hunter uses his own senses and ability to find game. So, I may be an anomaly in this high tech world.
Use of trail cameras is abused by some hunters. If the deer had hunter cams, it might be more equal. Cameras should be used for scouting and monitoring deer populations, not as an aid to the actual hunt.
Certain types of trail cameras
Cell cams should be
On private land I think not but in public spaces maybe
Depends on what you mean 'regulated'. As to placement or?
On Public Lands
Depends on the regulation - its scope and purpose
not if they are only used for wildlife
Don't know enough about public land hunting to answer.
I don’t see them as an issue anywhere.
Just more likely to get stolen on public land
there stolen anywhere.
They’re not a problem on either
Trail cameras are always subject to crappy people stilling them, but other than theives on both private and public are the only issue.
You should be able to do what you want on your private ground, also I’ve had cameraS stolen on private land.
not an issue on either other than theft concerns
Perhaps yes, but animals don't know the difference.
My opinion, to me on putting a camera on public land is that there is a lot of wrongful people who will steal your cameras, if they find them.
They are not an issue anywhere just have to hide them better on public ground
Not sure what is meant by more of an issue
Not an issue anywhere
Only when (blank) decide to smash them
Only real issue here is the security of the trail camera
Question 4 (To clarify, this question is referring to on-demand viewing with wireless cell cameras.)
Strongly agree if they are used for monitoring deer movement during a hunt.
I think this depends on how they are being used, but I do think it is getting close to that limit
There again if its your land, do/use as you please.
Tcameras should be very high tech and affordable since the footprint is small.
Real time may reduce maintenance visits to change memory cards?
To me there is nothing wrong with using a trail camera, it is nice to observe your hunting area to see what is out there.
what’s your point
So, not a problem
Don't understand what you mean about the question
I don’t see a problem with that
We also use a cellular trail cam for security monitoring of our hunting cabin. They cannot be too advanced for our purposes.
I think the prices for trail cameras are getting out of hand and need to come back down to reality.
Trail cameras help me manage my deer population, as well as manage coyote and bobcat predators as well. I choose size and location of food plots based on data from trail cameras also
Trail cameras should be manufactured in the USA.
