My brother in law swears by vanilla too. I'll have to add that to my Dollar Tree list of things to look for.

We put out a can of smoked oysters this afternoon. Set them within camera range of one of the feeders on number 2 spot. It's not the same place we have seen the bobcat in the past. We've seen a few coons in that area and squirrels. Lots of rabbits too. Ought to be fun to see what the oysters attract. We tied it on to the tree and just pulled the ring on the can to barely open it. I hope no little hands get cut trying to get the oysters out of there. Crying

We also put out a new camera a few rows over, deeper into the woods. Too deep and rough to take the 4 wheelers. We saw some good signs there today. Rick's Tree Ladder Stand is now between 2 cameras.

There were no animals on the SD cards tonight other than a few coons. The feeders were empty though and have been for a few weeks. We took out some more corn to fill them up to supplement their feeding since lots of stuff is dead out there now.

The sky was beautiful and it was a great day to be out in the woods.

Oh and BK, seeing your Mama and babies on the big screen here now..... Now that's beautiful! Even more so than on my Blackberry screen (with no glasses!)

Your photo reminds me of being in Virginia at Mom's house. Her house is right on the edge of the mountains and sometimes I'd see a Mama and her fawn walk out toward the house. I was able to get a nice video of her before she had the baby and a photo shortly after the baby was born.

This is the video of the deer

This is Mom and Baby Could be she was peeing there! HAHAHAHA

Ok... just got one of these...

http://www.beachaudio.com/Wildview/Stc-Tgl5ir-p-263151.html

No manual, any helpful hints. Bear in mind I have never used a game cam before. Have managed to set the date/time. Used a SD card from my digital camcorder, hooked the game cam to the computer and it was able to read the pics that were already on the card. Just not sure how to set it for taking pics. I want to be sure it works correctly before putting it out. Bought it refurbished, so you never know. Any help would be appreciated... thanks.

Welcome to the wonderful world of game cams!
I don't know anything about Wildview cameras but here's where you can get a manual and drivers.

http://www.wildviewcam.com/downloads.html

When you set it up hang it between knee and waist high for deer. The lower you hang it the more small animals it'll pick up. If you put it on deer trails set it at a angle to the trail to give the sensor a little more time to pickup motion.
If you can set it up on your property it will give you a chance to see how far out it will pick up motion and how far the flash is effective is at night.

Check on chasingame.com they test and review lots of cameras.

Any questions, ask somebody can help.

OK, I'm gonna be a woman here and say..... Oh Boy! Oh Boy!!!! You are gonna have so much fun with it!!! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Now that is out of my system....

I cannot tell you anything specific about your particular camera. I would imagine they all work pretty much the same though as far as settings.

With the Moultrie cameras we have, it will take either still shots or videos OR both! Our cameras have Infrared, instead of flash, so night time photos are all black and white. Also night time videos are only 5 seconds, whereas day time videos are 15 seconds.

Usually, you can set the delay on them. I.e., It takes a video, then a photo afterwards. We've got ours set up where it will delay 1 minute before it does it again. I've got big capacity cards in mine, so I'm not worried about them filling up. (unless you leave those Christmas videos on the card! Crying )

When we got ours, we set it up in the backyard and left it there for a few days.... testing out what happened when we set it for different lengths of things. I put lots of feed in the bird feeder and we had birds and squirrels for our "test animals", and of course, our own dogs.

Now, something I do, not for everyone.... is after I view the photos, I create a folder with location and then sub folders with the dates. That way I can pretty easily find photos I want to share later on. Once they are on your computer, you can always rename special photos. i.e.,

1st Blind
February 1-15, 2010
February 21-28, 2010

Our camera is pretty sensitive so picks up a lot of moving branches and limbs. So when we first put out a camera, we'll take a machete and whack anything that is "lightweight" and in the field of vision. Things we know will set off the camera. I know it's supposed to work on body heat, but it's disappointing to bring home a card that has 534 photos and only 2 animal shots! The rest is twigs blowing in the wind.

There you go, a lot of good information!

I had a camera that I'd got a lot of blank pictures with it. I got to checking the time stamps an found out it would be a certain time of day the sun would warm up the branches and vegetation so when a breeze moved them I would get lot's of pictures, it was just to sensitive.
One thing to keep in mind is not to set it up facing where the sun rises or sets, that can trigger false picture but more important a direct shot of the sun can burn out the CCD image sensor in any digital camera.

Not only that, you can't see anything when it DOES take a picture! We learned that the hard way too.

Some cameras have a test laser aimer thingamabobby. If you select that you can pin point where the camera will focus. It's good to have another person that can walk around until you find the red dot on their clothes. Then adjust as they walk toward where you want the pictures to take.

Thanks for the info, havent checked out the manual/driver page yet. I was able to view the test pics and videos here without any downloads. But I noticed when I hooked up the camera to the computer in the "on" position, the computer started looking for software. The stats on the cam said something about an onboard memory.... I prolly need the software to access that. It is out at the feeder now, so will have to check it in a day or two and see whats up. Dont want to leave it out for a week and find I have pics of moving twigs as was mentioned. Thanks for the tips... pics to follow... I hope!

My Moultrie cameras had a place where you could check to make sure it had the latest software. I totally forgot about that.

Can't wait to see what you have there Tom.

This is a great time to find out how to use it and set it, well before hunting seasons.
One more quick an easy trick is to take along another digital camera, hold it right in front of your trail camera and snap a picture then you'll see what the trail camera see right away instead of getting home and finding out brush or weeds are blocking the view or messing up the flash range.
Can't wait to see your pictures!

Be warned, most people can't stop with just one trail cam......

I agree

This is one of my favorite videos of "Bucky Nubbin", wanting to nurse on Momma and her not having anything to do with it!

But you dont seem to understand..... there is no closed season on Axis deer..... you see em... you shoot and eat em!! Thumbs up They can even legally be spotlighted at night. Wardens request a courtesy call when you plan on doing that, which only makes sense, and helps establish a report with them. We have about a 30 foot creek bank for a backstop, so we are not worried about stray bullets at night, just need to know when they are there..... IF they are there. So... having seen at least 30 Axis deer right across the fence from the place, you can imagine the anticipation.

My freezer is just about empty of game at this point. I'm thinking that we need to come visit you Tom, so you can take us hunting! HAHAHAHA

Seriously, we may be heading toward your direction for the Easter Weekend to spend it with my Mom and will be also visiting his family.

Nice group of deer, they look very healthy. I'm not sure I've ever seen a Axis deer.

It look like you have the camera elevated and angled down, that's a great way to get the flash focused on a area like that.
I know a fellow that carries two or three screw in tree steps with him so he can hang his camera's high out of reach of thieves and bears.

Great shot Tom! Those look like great eating too! I think you got a nice camera. Rick tells me they eat every 5 hours or so. Judging by when they show on our cameras, that's about right for down here.

I had it out for 2 days, and didnt get any daytime shots. I hope to get some Axis shots soon. I had the camera mounted on the only tree that looked like it was suitable, and hence the downward angle, glad they came out as good as they did. The feeder feeds morning and evening, so they must not be that hungry, since they wait til 3 am to eat.
