30 days. My batteries will last about 45-60 days so I found 30 days gets me about 500-800 pics sometimes 1,000 or more.

That's a tough question to answer. If you want to know what bucks use the area throughout the year, you are going to have to run cameras all through the year. On a well established salt lick my deer usually come through at least once a month and on bait usually every two weeks. Scrapes are just something that you have to know the right timing for. Sometimes the bucks will use them frequently, but there are times they avoid them. I do 't do much for food plot cams so I can't help you there. Actual trail setups are just a complete guess.

This time of year I like to move mine once every three weeks. I mainly have mine over established mineral sites.

I set mine up on commonly used trails and don't move them. I try to keep from going in the woods too much. I like to leave the woods "undisturbed"

Im more or less trying to get a guess on the homebody deer...the ones that shiw up during the rut are bonus deer the way I see it.......i guess the best option is to buy more cams

Summer is by far the worst time (IMO) to know what deer call your property home during season.
