To own trail cameras is usually to become addicted to trail cameras. It has certainly been that way for me.
As an outdoorsman I can’t wait to see what’s passed down a particular trail or fed at a food plot while I was gone. It’s shown me just how active wildlife is at night and how many deer are in an area that we never see.
As a photographer I’m also keyed-up to see what kind of photography is waiting on these little hide-and-leave cameras. Some at night are blurry, ghost-like imagines.
Some during the daylight are pretty sharp and impressive, especially when you consider they’re taken by $150 point-and-shoot cameras that are simply triggered by movement.
Keep in mind this pic of a dandy 10-pointer has been cropped to show only about one-fourth of the total frame.
Even Brian Corn, The Eagle’s photo editor, was impressed with the quality.
