Helpful Tips on Setting Up Trail Cameras

Helpful Tips on Setting Up Trail Cameras

Long gone are the times when hunters were sparsely equipped as Elmer Fudd hoping for trophy buck on their table. Nowadays you can brush off all your hunting gear along with your hunting license if you are deprived of the must scouting tool- trail camera. Its benefits are numerous. No more poachers trespassing on your property stealing your game. No more night watches waiting in an ambush for a game to appear.

A great trail camera will do all the work for you, but you have to choose the best one and try to base your choice from trail camera reviews you read before you decide wich one to buy. All YOU have to do is to set it up smartly. Otherwise, it will either be demolished by a bear or stolen by a determined thief.

Helpful Tips on Setting Up Trail CamerasTIP 1: TRAIL CAMERA PLACEMENT STRATEGIES:

  • The perfect height to mount your camera is approximately 3′ off the ground. Waist high will provide peak performance. Also, make sure to keep it horizontal.
  • Avoid uneven ground and use level one when mounting your camera.
  • Clear any debris in front of the camera to avoid blurred images
  • Place your camera side on the sunrise or sunset so as to prevent the images from appearing white out.
  • Take off your camera from the allocated spot once every two weeks
  • When possible, position your trail camera so that it faces North, never into the sun since it is sensitive to heat.


Helpful Tips on Setting Up Trail CamerasTrails and game paths;

These spots are just perfect for you camera placement since deer and wild game, in general, must follow the above routes in order to find feeding and bedding locations. Once you record the exact trail that animals are using place your camera on a tree with a fresh scrape on it.

Mineral licks;

Top-notch spot for your trail camera during the late summer. You can make the lick yourself by digging out a circle and filling it with deer minerals. Your camera should be placed at least 10 feet from the lick, and preferably 20 to 30 feet away so not to scare off the animals. Angle the camera towards the lick so to get the best and clearest images.

Meadows and openings;

Since these are open areas you can expect the animal to spend more time in front of the camera lens. Given that, you will get the best and most informative shootings if you set the capture mode on your camera.


  • Heavy- duty camera box is a far best and final option if you don’t want it to be stolen or shattered into pieces by a bear.
  • Always use long-lasting power lithium batteries for your camera.
  • Extend your battery life by using longer time periods between images, such as 4-5 minutes.
  • Time your camera checks before severe weather conditions if possible. Be scent- free on these occasions so as not to provoke the prospective buck.

For the best hunting experience, please keep to these smart tips. Believe me. I am writing from experience. Very bad though!
