Move your trail cameras?!

Pre Season I usually leave them up for 2 to 3 weeks to pattern an area, however during this season I have been moving them weekly as I hunt putting them over fresh sign and am having good luck with it.

What do you do per season and during?

Well behind my house I leave them in the same area the whole season due to having a limited number of places to hunt on 36 acres... I do have a few that I will put up if I have some fresh sign show up.. Mine are mainly on trails and travel areas though we're the deer move through.

During the fall, ever week - 2 weeks. It just depends....some real/mock scrapes will continue to have alot of action. When the action decreases, I move them. But as long as I am seeing new bucks and the type bucks I am looking for, that camera will sit there. When you get off of scrapes, the cameras tend to move around more.

During the summer, I will put one on each of my salt licks and leave it from the start of August till end of September.

I do the same thing you do. every time i find a new scrape i put my trial cam over it and see what size the buck is.

but right now i got it at the house because i seen some trespassers on my hunting land. so i figured it would be a good ideal to bring out of the woods to be on the safe side.

Ive been moving mine regularly when I find good sign. Ive gotten some decent pics this year but mostly in middle of November. The last few weeks I really havent gotten many pics at all especially in the daylight.

Do you use black-flash cams?

I do the same, but I only leave them on salt for the month of August. The first time I visit them in September, I move them to non-baited locations.

Very similar to JCDEERMAN for non-scrape set-ups. I don't have enough cameras to monitor every food plot I have at the same time, so I usually rotate cameras between food plots weekly or bi-weekly. I will monitor old skidder trails for a week or so before moving the camera to a different old skidder trail.

However, once scrapes start to appear, a camera may stay on a given scrape for 2 months. I have a couple of traditional scrapes on my property that are used heavily by every buck in the area, and leaving a black-flash camera on each of these traditional scrapes is a must.

My biggest problem is remembering where I put them...does anyone have a good technique they use to keep up with them .
I was running 15 to 20 cams ..and was having trouble finding some of them ,I cut down to about 8 cams right now.
I think I still have a J10 fuji out there somewhere I set out in August ...someone may have stole it ...but for some reason I think it is out there somewhere.
And I have found out you can have to many cams ,I am seeing much more now that I have cut back.

Make a map. Update the map every time you vist. Honestly, that is the best way, but you must teach yourself to update the map religiously.
