Trail Camera Tips and Tricks from Freedom USA Sales

Trail cameras have gotten better and better over the years as technology has improved exponentially. But no matter how good of a trail camera that you have, it will not be worth very much if you are not using it properly. Here are a few basic tips to help get the most out of your cameras, and ensure that you don’t miss a picture opportunity of a giant buck! 


Learn the Trail Camera Before Use

Before leaving a trail camera in the woods, take a little time to learn how to use the trail camera properly. Learn the different features such as trigger speeds, picture settings, and flash ranges that can help customize the camera to get the best pictures. Different trail cameras have different settings and features, and some are easier to use than others. You can find each cameras' specs in our product detail pages


Don’t Check Your Camera Too Much

Overchecking your camera will spook game and put your scent in the woods. Avoid the temptation of checking the camera too often, going once a week at most. Even better, you can purchase cellular trail cameras like those from Spypoint or Spartan, and receive the pictures straight to your email or cell phone without ever having to step foot into the woods. 


Use Good Batteries

    There are few things as frustrating as a dead trail camera that hasn’t been taking pictures. To avoid this, use good batteries from reputable brands. Even if this means paying a little more money, it will keep your camera working longer and will allow it to take more pictures!
