    Finally got my last 2 cams set back up. Had to wait until I got more batteries. Only running 5 cams this year and forgot how many batteries I need to run 5 cams. Pics to follow. Hopefully pull the first 3 I had setup this coming weekend and get some good pics. I have been lacking this year with getting cams set back out. Not much time left to get it done. Also the bugs have been terrible with the heat we have been having in NC. Hopefully opener won't be 95 again. Anyone else running a bunch of cams and wishing we could fast forward a 2 week soak?

    I need to get mine back out. That little hurricane made me pull them and I finally got a couple of days off. Going this afternoon or tomorrow. Not very pumped up because all I have been getting is doe's. One buck every now and then.

    Does are what you want to be seeing so when Oct rolls around they all pull in the bucks you haven't been seeing.

    Great idea for a crown bag. I carry my cams, batteries and SD cards in that $12 Cabelas bag they always sell.

    Usually put mine out right after turkey season ends and bring them in a few weeks after season ends.
    Normally check them once a month, check them to often and they are going to pattern you.

    I wish. I get anxious and like to move them into new areas to see what I can find. Only usually pull them from end of season until turkey season when they go back out. 1 or 2 stay out all year in productive areas.

    Sweet. Most of the time I'm never packing more then 1 at a time if I decide to move one or not otherwise they all go into a backpack I use.

    I use the cudde link at my house and land around here. I use the $28.88 Tasso cams on my leases due to theft. Last year Tractor Supply put their AA batteries on sale $4.99 for 30! I bought a couple years worth.

    Running 7 of 12 now. Hopefully will get the other 5 out this week. Typically I like to check mine after 3-4 weeks but I have them spread out so I can check 3-4 at a time and then wait a week and check another batch, essentially checking cams every week to help with the addiction but never returning to a specific location more than once a month.

    Running 3 on 40 acres I would run more but I have problems with trespassers, at one point I had 6 cameras and had three stolen in a two week period so I limit the number of cameras and try to hide them!

    I hate that. I lost a few over the years. I don't have the problem now where I hunt. All I can say is hang um high.

    That's exactly what I have done! I have also moved them off of heavily used trails because that where people like to walk! it's bitter sweet because I don't get as many pictures but I don't have cameras stolen!

    I had done that before but only got a month or so of pictures. Only down side is life span on the cheaper batteries.

    Sucks to lose cameras when you know it's most likely someone who shares the same passion for hunting.
