Today’s trail cameras have a ton of options that you can set up specifically for your location and situation. If you’re setting it up over deer bait like corn or a mineral lick, turn your frequency and sensitivity down so you don’t end up with a lot of photos of the same thing. This fills your card and uses up your batteries.
If you’re using your camera over a deer scrape, trail or opening of a food plot, turn the frequency and sensitivity up so that you catch everything that moves through. Unlike baited deer that will stay in one spot, you’re trying to see how, when and where they move through so you can learn deer patterns.
