I was wondering what the best food or trick is to use to get dear in range of your trail camera. I just got one for Christmas and was wondering what I should use. Also if you have any pics to post lets get um done.

thanks

I have the stealth cam and never had a problem. Probably 75% of my pictures are deer, sometimes you get a false shot, but rarely. I did have 3 ***** in the pic at one time which was enough mass/movement to trigger it. I usually just toss out a little corn about 10 yards in front of the camera, or just put it kinda parallel to a trail (if you put it right on the trail perpendicular to the trail, you will get a buncha close range nose or butt photos).

Stealth Cam MCD2 Model...I think. It's the higher end 35 mm camera that they sell.
Don't face the unit toward the sun (East or West) and put perpendicular to a game trail or green filed edge.

Good luck!

As far as film, I've been using Kodak Gold 200 speed, never tried anything else. I also heard that Stealth Cams are junk, but I picked one up thinking if it sucked I would just take it back. Well no problems with that one so I got a second one and it works great too. One thing I did to get better pics was tape off about 1/2 inch of the sensor on each side with electrical tape to stop the nose and butt shots. Seems to help alot. I'll post a nose shot.

Tips!!!

Face the cam up/down the trail, not parallel to it. (The trigger is slow and you might miss the deer!)

Also, you might get a lemon.....take it back and get another if you do. Most are good, but there are a few bad ones out there.

Also, make sure the film loads. When you put it in, the motor will slow way down and work hard....this is good. Also the front should say 0 (I think) E means it is empty.

Lastly, don't be surprized if it disappears....mine did. Think coonhunters got it, not sure how anyone else would have found it. :mad:
