Trail Cam Photography

A trail cam is an interesting way to explore the environment and apply technology in the field. A trail cam is a motion activated camera. You position the camera in a location you expect animals frequent and hope that the camera captures images. Hunters use these cameras for scouting, but my preference is to use the camera to explore a location familiar to me.

These images were taken near a cabin we own near Danbury, WI. All images were collected at a location of approximately 200 yards from our cabin.

The only real skill involved in trail cam photography is placement. Once placed, you have no control over the camera.
