Senior moment ! It happensNo, I did not forget to turn a camera back on after swapping SD cards. I forgot to turn on TWO cameras after swapping cards. During peak rut! There's two weeks of critical data I'll never get back. Son of a B____!
It happens every year...
And there lies the problem. I get on "auto-pilot" when doing tasks like this and my mind starts to wander. "Should a move this camera to the other scrape? How many cameras should I dedicate to food plots?" And I'm no longer paying attention to what I'm doing.But yeah, could see it happening if I wasn't paying attention.
Carried batteries with me last time I checked mine, knew I was going to have to change them in the camera I had been running in video and photo mode. Got to the camera and the dadgum battery pack was stuck. So next time I am going to have to remember to take batteries and something to pry/pull out that battery pack.I've discovered that making sure you have extra batteries and sd cards with you and even on your person while checking the cameras doesn't ensure you will remember to change them out!
That's funny! Sad, but funny!I think I got you beat. I had to be at the inlaws for a week for Thanksgiving. I predicted the deer would be bonkers at my place the end of the week after Thanksgiving. I have 14 cuddelink cameras running and it was like freaking Mardigras for the deer. My main shooter was on 4 different cameras on Saturday in daylight. FOUR, FOUR cameras in one morning. 🤦♂️🤮.....never again.
I will be buying a positive covid test next year from someone.....Sorry honey, I've got covid I'm gonna have to stay home in bed all week, yall go have fun without me.
