Trail Cam Failures
« on: December 29, 2019, 07:45:26 PM »
Other then obvious things like the power switch, what would cause a trail cam to miss a shot?
I picked a couple up a while back at Cabelas as they were running a sale. Just to mess around with. I caught an 8 pointer walking down my street one afternoon around 3:00 :confused:.
I cant remember if I posted his pick on here or not. I couldnt find it so maybe I didnt. I still have it. Caught a Red fox in my back yard one night.  I live in town...well a very rural low population town but still ya wouldnt expect deer and fox cutting through your yard.
I'm not sure if all the bucked up logs and split wood at my house attracted them via the smell or what.
Anywayyyy...I like to pop rabbits out my windows with the Crosman 1322 that nasty talked me into and I have never picked one up. Something always takes them during the night. Now that I caught a fox in my back yard I'm wondering if he's the one pleasuring on them :laf:

I had a dry spell, but finally whacked one the other day and decided to set the cameras up on the carcass. It went two days untouched and then it finally disappeared around 2 AM on the third night. Not a single picture was takin. I do not understand that :confused: What could possibly cause that? A ghost?  :shrug:
I had pictures leading up to that time with the carcass in them, and I had pics after that time with the carcass gone.

Maybe the fox barreled thru & the camera didnt trigger fast enough or not at all.  :shrug:

 Next time you shoot a rabbit drive a stake in the ground and then wire it to the rabbit so whatever takes it has  to work for it, that up your chances of slowing them down and  to get a picture.  It sounds to me like you may have a zombie rabbit problem  :hahaha: :wink:

I wondered about frost on the lens.
My brother said frost dont accumulate on vertical surfaces so they should remain clear.

 :alscalls: :doh2: I said then tell that to my truck windows. :innocentwhistle:

Or maybe a hawk or an eagle swept in from above and snatched it. I even had two cameras on it :shock2:
