It isn't when (time of day) or how often you check cameras that can hurt you. It is the camera checking process itself--what precautions you do or don't take when checking the cameras--that can hurt you. Walking to cameras and leaving a human scent trail on a regular basis absolutely can reduce deer traffic through the area, at least during daylight.

BSK, I totally agree with that...I always try to set my cameras where I can get to them by ATV, and slap on a pair of gloves that I have done my best to de-scent, that I am not leaving any more scent than is absolutely unavoidable.

The whole WHEN to check thing threw me off!
Thanks for chiming in.

The three major precautions I take when checking cameras are:

1) I ride an ATV/UTV right up to the camera.

2) I take scent-reducing precautions with clothing and boots.

3) I like to wear a cheap rainsuit that holds clothing fibers from dropping off on the ground or being rubbed off on briers, twigs or grass I might brush against.
