Hunting cameras Catch More Than Animals

Usually, hunting camera is used by the hunters to take photos of animals.But you know, they can catch more than that actually.

You can place it in your garden, bedroom or office when you are on holidays or business trips, the cameras will record what happened there, if there is some thefts.

You can take it outside with you when you are on vacation, they will record the happy hour you have. Also, if you are a botanist, you can research the growing process of the plant
So, just enjoy it and hope the hunting cameras bring you more surprise.

Declaration for the filter in hunting trail cameras

We got some questions from some users about the filter in the hunting trail camera before.  So we would like to explain something here for your information.

Normally, the filter won’t move when you shake the camera, and it will move automatically during night when taking photos or videos.
If the night photos are all black or half black half white, then that is the problem of filter, which did not open and close totally.

Get Your Buck to Doe Ratio From Your Trail Camera

This simple formula is widely used for determining a rough buck to doe ratio in a given area. It’s important to note that you must use multiple camera locations and run your cam- eras for a time period of one to two weeks in each spot. If you only have one camera, run it for a week or two and move it at least two hundred yards to a new location. Keep your cameras moving! At times of the year and in certain parts of the country, whitetails can have a relatively small core area within a larger home range, so to see all the animals you may need to move to new locations.

The more data you collect the more accurate your results.

  • Total Pictures of bucks = X
  • Total Pictures of unique bucks = Y
  • Total Pictures of Adult Does = Z (not fawns)
  • Doe Multiplier = B Y÷X=A A x Z = Number of Does Y ÷ B = Buck to Doe Ratio

Example #1

  • 56 Pictures of bucks with 12 being unique 12 ÷ 56 = .2142
  • 200 pictures of adult does without counting fawns
  • 200 x .2142 = 42
  • So 12 bucks for every 42 does

Your exact ratio would be 12:42 So your buck to doe ratio would be 1:4

Example #2

  • 1,178 Pictures of Bucks with 17 being unique 17 ÷ 1,178 = .0144
  • 2,368 Pictures of Adult does 2,368 x .0144 = 34
  • So 17 bucks for every 34 does

Your ratio would be 17:34 So you could claim a buck to doe ratio of a little better than 1:2

A hunting buck experience

The Tug Hill is known for it’s snow and snowmobiling and not so much it’s deer hunting. Sure there are deer there, but the massive snow depths make the deer herd vary greatly from year to year. After a summer of promising trail camera pictures of bucks I was eagerly awaiting the first day of the season. October came and went with not a lot of buck sightings.In the large tract of woods I hunt it’s not common to go quite awhile without seeing a deer, let alone a buck.

November came and I went to Canada on a hunting trip and enjoyed the experience, but with a close eye back home to the weather revealed the tug hill getting some tracking snow. As luck would have it the weather turned frigid where we were hunting and the lake we stay on started to freeze. By boat being the only way in and out of our remote cabin, we were advised to pack up and head back to New York. So, off we went on the thirty hour commute home.

We arrived at about noon and with little sleep. I packed my bags and headed for the Tug Hill and arrived at camp just at dark. The ground was bare, but the forecast called for snow by morning. And it was dead on. At 5 a.m. the snow had just stopped and I eagerly awaited day light. The first sign of shooting light and I was off bounding around the ridges looking for a good buck track.

At exactly 8 a.m. I came on to a track longer than my 7mm magnum shell and I knew this was the one I would track. He took me up a steep ridge and into a recent cut over where there was lots of pricker bushes and he ran into a couple does. He ran around in circles and finally got the one he wanted to break off the pack. I could tell by his tracks he was actually pushing her to where he wanted her to go.

There was still a touch of snow in the tracks so I knew I needed to sort things out and get moving. I was going pretty hard for about an hour when all of a sudden, without any signal, I came up on two fresh beds. And, the tracks after the beds were clear of snow. I knew then it was creep time. Slowly and methodically I took a step and watched. After about 50 yards I came to a tree that he had just raked with his antlers. The bark was still moist on the snow. She must have tried to make her escape when he was busy beating up this tree because soon after it they were bounding again down into a swamp and out into an old skid road.

I crept along sneaking and peaking and then there was a crash and a blur of white antlers. He ran straight away for about 75 yards and kept a pine tree between us. But then his “queen” bolted to the left and I knew he would follow… that was my chance. I got a good bead on him and swung through, fired and down he went! A beautiful 170 pound Tug Hill buck was down by my favorite method of tracking.

How To Attract Deer To Your Trail Camera

There is a lot more to positioning a trail camera for successful pictures than simply mounting it in a tree in the bush. Deer can be canny enough to make it necessary to go to greater lengths to ensure regular subjects pass in front of the camera lens.

There are a number of ways that you can improve your prospects of capturing a wide selection of bucks in all their glory. Some of them will require a little bit of extra work before the start of hunting season while others should merely rely on your ability to read the signs.
1.Create A Deer Funnel
2.Take note of the bedding and feeding areas
3.Take note of water sources
4.Create A Food Plot
5.Set Up A Deer Feeder

We will take a closer look at the logic behind each suggestion and how using them will increase your prospects of, firstly, taking a picture of the deer and, secondly, learning their habits and movements.

Create A Deer Funnel

The way in which a deer or a herd of deer move around can be very predictable because they like to travel along the easiest paths where they have a sense of safety and security. These paths are known by the term deer funnels and they are created by the repeated passage of hoofs over the same ground. But they can also be created to persuade deer along the routes that you want them to travel along.

The process of setting up deer funnels should start well before hunting season begins. The idea is to look for an existing deer trail with the most likely places to be between the bedding area and a food source.

When deer travel they choose the easiest path rather than the most direct route. So a path can tend to meander along flatter, safer terrain. They also tend to travel along routes where consistent protective cover can be found for the majority of the way. When a safe trail has been found that the deer feel comfortable traveling along, they will use those same funnels season after season making them far more predictable in their movements.

In order to persuade the deer to move in front of your camera position you can create a blockage along a favored path to divert them where you need them to go. This blockage will have to be set up well before hunting season begins so that any scent that is left behind has long gone and the deer have returned to the trail.

One of the necessary factors that must be included in any redirected funnel is protective screening cover. A whitetail will feel most secure if there is a thick mass of vegetation along the trail. This might mean planning well ahead and planting some vegetation along the way. Alternatively it might mean cutting through a particularly dense stretch of vegetation and leaving a thin channel that creates a naturally protected funnel through which the deer will feel secure.

Pinpoint Bedding and Feeding Areas

By understanding the places where the deer are moving from and to you can position your camera in a location that is more likely to get regular passersby.

If you are going to mount your camera between a deer bed and their food source you should do so in the early season period. During this time of year a whitetail deer will not move around much. They will tend to limit their movements to and from their primary food source.

Working out where deer bed down is the first step that should be taken. The easiest way to do this is to start at the end of the previous season and follow the deer trail from the feeding area. You will eventually be taken to an area of dense cover such as tall grass, thickets or other protective foliage. Finding a matted down area with droppings in the vicinity will tell you that you have found their bed.

Now that you have established both the bedding area and the preferred food source you can position the trail camera. As already mentioned, the deer will not be doing a lot of moving during the early season but any moving that does take place is going to be along this small stretch.

Take Note of Water Sources

It’s not enough to merely look for a water source and expect that this is where the deer will come to get a drink. It must be a sheltered water source where the deer will feel secure with plenty of covering vegetation in the area. If you can locate this popular drinking spot and the bedding area it will provide you with a good opportunity to set up a trail camera along the trail between the two locations.

Deer lose water in three ways, urine, their droppings and their breath. On average a deer will require around 2 to 3 quarts of water per 100 pounds of body weight. This rises as the weather grows warmer and drier.

If you are trying to get deer to your trail camera during the warmer months your best opportunity is going to come by positioning the camera on a trail that leads to a water source. You are more likely to meet with success if the foods that provide the deer with have a low moisture content and the temperatures are high.

Naturally, the usual rules will apply when it comes to mounting your trail camera. Try to disturb the surrounding environment as little as possible so that your scent is not spread across a wide area. Also, make sure you remove scent from the camera by spraying it with a scent elimination spray.

Create A Food Plot

The movement of a herd of deer can be controlled over a longer period of time by good deer management through a quality food plot. By growing a tasty crop of clover or corn you can train the deer to return to the same ground year after year.

Once the deer become used to moving into the abundant food source the trail camera, which will have been positioned in anticipation of their traveling habits should get a more than adequate selection of subjects. By setting up a food plot that is planted with an array of different food sources you will be able to keep the area populated all year round.

Plan ahead. Set up a suitable location for mounting your trail camera then plant your deer plot. A good late summer crop will bring a consistent parade of deer past your camera to provide you with plenty of chances to get a great shot of a whitetail buck.

An added bonus is that if the camera (or at least the security box) has been mounted before the food plot has been established the deer will accept it as part of the landscape when they first move in. This means that there is less likelihood that the camera’s presence will spook the animals later.

Set Up a Deer Feeder

A deer feeder might be an idea to consider to bring deer to the exact spot you need them to be to get good shots. This idea is only going to work at the times of year when natural food sources are depleted. In the early season they are more than likely going to be more interested in the sweet green offerings such as clover.

As the deer become used to the workings of whichever deer feeder you use they are going to be happy and feed from it. The added advantage of getting them used to something like a feeder is that they are less likely to bolt just because the trail camera has made a clicking noise.

Drawing deer into the field of vision of  your trail camera at a deer feeder is certainly one of the more popular tactics that are employed. This is the tactic that you might like to employ if you have a camera with an overly slow trigger speed. The lingering nature of the feeding deer will give the camera plenty of time to capture good images.

A problem is, tough, that the resultant shots don’t show the deer performing in their natural habitat. It all looks a bit too domesticated for my liking.


There should be no reason for day after day of no deer pictures. With some planning, a little bit of work and a good quality trail camera s\you can orchestrate things so that the deer are more than happy to parade past your mounted camera so that a nice clear picture can be taken.

The Hunting For the Buck

The journey for this buck started in mid December of 2011 while I was glassing to check what animals had made it through the Ohio firearms season. When I glassed him in the CRP he really caught my eye as a beautiful 4 year old that I figured would gross somewhere in the mid 140′s. I instantly wanted to get some pics of him so i placed three Primos hunting camera on the property. It took almost 2 weeks to finally catch a few images of him.

My next goal was to locate his sheds in the upcoming spring months. The winter was unusually mild and when i went in february to start peeking around for early shedding deer, I ended up glassing him and another 4″ year old. They were still carrying their head gear and to my surprise still chasing does in february. As a matter of fact there were several bucks chasing a few young does. I kept tabs on where he liked to chase does as well as where he liked to travel with his buddy. I started finally finding sheds towards the end of February but not the buck’s. I just kept going back every so often and looking covering different areas. I ended up finding 13 sheds on the farm and finally around March I located his right antler in a spot I already searched. I never did locate the left side but was thrilled to have one since I searched so many hours. The countless acres of CRP fields make shed hunting very difficult to cover everything.

When the summer months arrived I put out 5 hunting camera with hopes of finding the buck. I checked them every few weeks or so all the way up until September. I had gotten pictures of his running mate whom I ended up naming “Splits” due to his split brows, but no pictures of him. I had glassed the bean fields and CRP on several occasions but with no sightings. I finally decided to move on and split my cams up on different farms in hopes of finding a good target buck for the upcoming archery season. The best I came up with was a 145 class 10 point and “Splits” who I figured would gross around 160″. I kept telling my wife Amy I really wanted to see what this deer turned into before I pursued something else.

Dunhuang west lake reserves expand Infrared sensor camera technology

On January 8, 2014, administration and sen confirmed by cooperation, Chinese academy of agricultural sciences in the dunhuang west lake reserve core added infrared sensor camera line number and samples, the sample line, sample to reserve 50% of wild camels in the automatic monitoring main activity area, the accumulation of wild camels activity information for the future, the research provides a powerful guarantee. Beginning in February 2012, partners in the region of the major activities in the reserve wild camels set infrared sensing camera 12 vice, harvest a lot in the past two years. In order to further control the distribution of wild camels and activities, and at the same time grasp the Wolf, fox, lynx, goose distribution and activity of antelope and other wild animals, in recent days, the researchers designed monitoring line 2 line to article 4, monitoring samples, sample line distance from more than 50 km to 150 km; Eight new sample set monitoring point, the number increased to 16; The newly installed infrared camera 13, number of 25 pairs.

Si Chuan LTL-8210m Trail Camera Support

Larger spots when it comes to use your camera correctly and efficiently track is to mount not only in the right place, but in a good way to capture the best photos and possible. After all, having your camera track in a warm sleeping area doe during the first two weeks of November will not do you any good if it is not directed to a runway actively used. Thanks to the need to locate and place your device in an ideal location is the dilemma that we all face -. find a tree suitable for the set It never fails, you will find the hottest scratch for the best trail in the woods and there is not a straight shaft bigger than your thumb for miles. With the advent of the Si Chuan LTL-8210m trail camera support track this problem is over.
LTL-8210m is a pretty unique mounting system in that it was conceived for work on both trees and the metal “T” shaped poles cl Ture that we found in most of the farmers and construction materials of local shops, and also scattered woodlots and cl structures worldwide. This function allows you to use the LTL-8210m in any location under a variety of conditions, unlike other systems that require either a mounting shaft to be screwed in, or a particular position to be mounted on. Others require tripods costly to buy that can potentially be reversed or inverted.
Included with the LTL-8210m are two nylon straps with adjustable buckles. One for securing your camera monitoring unit itself, and the other for use in fixing the LTL-8210m to a tree or post cl Ture turn. The removable base, it is extremely easy to attach to a tree that you do not have the extra weight of the camera to bear while trying to get the strap in place and secure. This is particularly useful when using the device of large trees when you often need two hands to reach all the way around the trunk. I do not know how many times I dropped my StealthCam while trying to do with the ridiculously long strap that is included with their units. Once you have the base attached to the tree you just drag the other half of the unit into the mounting holes and you are ready to go. No more than bring your cordless drill into the woods to screw your camera Cuddeback tree, not fumble with elastic cords that are barely able to support the weight of your camera to monitor the shaft.
When using the LTL-8210m on a picket cl Ture you simply attach the back half of the mounting bracket to the base with four bolts and nuts wings, slide down the pole to the desired height, tighten the screws, attach the rest of the unit, and once again you are up and running in no time. This feature is ideal for use in areas that do not have much, or, suitable trees nearby. This includes marshes, small shrublands, CRP fields, a farm, and especially food plots. Whereas each post cl Ture metal will co You a few dollars and are relatively easy to install this is a great option for people who like to set up cameras in these broad areas that are traditionally not conducive to the correct mounting points nearby. Thanks to the popularity of food plots to attract wildlife this is product is much more in arrears in the market today.

The last major feature of the LTL-8210m, is that it is adjusting. A vertical range almost unlimted is secured by a locking hinge and allows you to compensate for trees or posts that may be leaning too far in one direction for a traditional installation. This large vertical adjustment also allows the freedom to set your camera much higher than usual with a downward angle to capture images from above monitoring, reducing the chances of your device costly could be identified by two sets or thieves potentail. It also eliminates having to jam sticks, rocks, twigs and other assorted items behind your camera to get just the right angle. The setting of a heart tee at heart tee is decent, but not great. Three settings are locked out R, but prevent these fine adjustments to get things just right. Although in the grand scheme of things, minor con is far outweighed by the many benefits.
LTL-8210m works with most brands of cameras track, including the popular Cuddeback, StealthCam, Bushnell and Moultrie models. Seen here is the LTL-8210m with my Cuddeback Excite mounted on it. The included mounting bracket is easy to obtain and can be adjusted vertically using the slots at the rear of the mounting plate.
In my opinion the LTL-8210m Si Chuan Archery is a great investment for anyone who is even slightly interested in capturing the best possible images with their cameras games. It helps eliminate the struggle to find a place to mount your camera when you find that perfect place, and it greatly increases the flexibility of where you can use your camera path. It really is a camera accessory track that can be used in any field and at any time. Used in conjunction with the EZ Perfume available bandwidth of the science of hunting (it can help get those big bucks to stop in front of your camera for a great shot) and your favorite camera screening is a great combination.

Trail camera technology become a new method for expert study of alpine artiodactyla population

Scientists to study the complex and varied topography, slope steep valley deep, ravines crossbar, etc for the typical distribution of animals in the mountain valley landforms, traditional research method is useless, for the met a lot of problems. Recently, a doctoral candidate at the kunming institute of zoology of the Chinese academy USES the trail camera and a dunghill counting method for habitat Gao Shanlin cloven-hoofed animals is considered effective study method.
According to relevant experts, effective wildlife population status investigation and monitoring, to protect endangered species, and biological diversity and management is very important for the evaluation. Hengduan mountains throughout much of northwest yunnan, complex and varied topography, slope steep valley deep, ravines aspect, is a typical mountain ravines. Special terrain and climate conditions of increasing the difficulty of field investigation, combined with the cloven-hoofed wildlife population characteristics of concealment, low density and whereabouts, the traditional survey method, such as line transect method in a plant community within or across several communities in a straight line, with a measuring line, tape record along this line of plant community structure and analysis method. ) More difficult to obtain the information such as the abundance and distribution of animals. Institute of zoology, Chinese academy of sciences in kunming Jiang Xuelong team Li Xueyou PhD in investigation and study, a different approach, adopted the technique of trail and the dunghill counting method to study the four kinds of sympatric distribution of the alpine musk deer habitat Gao Shanlin cloven-footed animals, tufted, serow, sichuan and the republic of China.
Li Xueyou, moreover, the study also analyzed by shooting rate, the spatial-temporal pattern of four ungulate habitat, automatic induction photographic system can be used to study Gao Shanlin habitat use of animals. Technology compared with traditional method, path in wildlife survey and monitoring is not affected by terrain, climate, and the limit of time, 24 hours non-stop record wild animals appear information, has many characteristics, such as accuracy, high efficiency, time and energy, is a mountain valley wildlife survey and monitoring of a quick and easy way.

About ltl-5210 and ltl-5210a instructions

Recently,there are some customers was puzzled for ltl5210 and ltl5210a these two models.There  are feeling is different products,even no like one and the same brand.Under this to introduce the two types of relationships.

LTL-5210 is an infrared sensing camera,commonly known as hunting cameras,which is a designation of this camera in first listed.Called ltl5210 infrared sensing camera when the camera is the biggest physical pixel 5 million.

LTL-5210a,also is the infrared sensing camera,and called hunting cameras as you know.But LTL-5210a is LTL-5210 upgrade version.The largest physical pixel was promoted to 12 million.Greatly improved the infrared induction hunting camera gathering the clarity of the picture.

Later, because ltl5210 and ltl5210a cost difference is not big, 12 million pixels ltl5210a induction infrared camera to occupy the market share, but because ltl5210 “first-in effect” was known to the masses of users, this camera is called ltl5210 infrared sensing camera.

Ltl5210 and ltl5210a are actually the same product, only ltl5210a is ltl5210 upgrade the product, its function, performance is much higher than ltl5210 infrared sensing camera.
