Game Camera useage.

A neighbor had something taking some apples off his tree.

He really wanted to know what animal it could be.

A deer?

A bear?



Well, he went and bought 2 trail or game cameras.

Set them up and 3 days later, got picture of the animal(s).

It was a couple of 2 legged animals.

A trap was set and the boys were caught and dealt with privately.


The point is, unlike myself, he used the camera's for a different reason.

I use them to see what I have for deer like above.


These camera's have many uses.

Cost, $60-$80 will get you a nice camera.

It will take day or night photo's or video.

Night time photo's use infrared lighting so it is not easily seen unlike a flash.


Need a bit of security?  I use 6 when I go on vacation.

They point at the doors of entry and one at cars coming and going.


A lady friend uses one to monitor her bird feeders to see if anything new comes along.

An 8 gig SD card  will get you nearly 1000 photo's.


Just a suggestion for a bit of peace of mind.

How innovative, and I think if we had a large property lke our last two, I would definitely use it.  A

Hi William- our neighbor had a camera so he could see his boat dock while he was out of town, and a friend has several around his yard so he can keep an eye on his fruit trees.

Morning William.

We have been considering getting a security system for our home.  Those are a lot cheaper for sure.

Good morning William.  Technology has come a long way and can be used to help keep us more secure.

Good morning William. Humans are much more devious than other animals I believe.

Those type of cameras are being used more and more for home security, as people will even steal packages from a doorstep, so sad.

These cameras are fairly cheap, and seeing more and more around neighborhoods, for these very reasons.

We have had car break ins in my community a few times in the past several years and i have often thought of putting a game camera in the tree in my front yard as it's next to the driveway.

That's one nice buck!

My broker put up a game camera after finding mountain lion tracks on his land. He hasn't gotten a picture yet, but hopefully he will soon.

William Feela of course I am wondering about what the boys being dealt with privately entailed...

Very cool idea William Feela I've been thinking about these cameras as well.

These are a great idea. My son in law has them in the woods behind the house to capture deer images like yours.

We have cameras on our house and motion lights so can see what is happening wherever we might be. I love technology.

Great Idea! I've been thinking about getting cameras I can monitor from my phone/computer looking at the entry ways to the house.

Bill, my hunting partner has several trail cams that capture deer like the one you have above.
