    Do any of you guys leave a trail cam out all year or just closer to the season? My camera is out most of the year and I'm getting some great bucks on it, how about you all?

    I leave my trail cam out most of the year but no good bucks yet. I'll be checking tomorrow!

      I may be something of a Luddite, but I don't use trail cameras. I like the spice of mystery in my hunting ground.

        This is my first year using trail cameras. I've had them up for 3 weeks and just checked them today. So far only one buck has showed up. I like the idea of having them up a few months before season to get a grasp of what's in the area and their typical travel corridors. Plus, it is exciting to check your cameras and see what all decided to show up.

            I may be a little crazy, but I'm pretty hardcore about running cameras, although I'm actually not as dedicated as I used to be. I used to do camera surveys from about early June to February - basically from when you could first tell bucks apart until they shed their antlers - on all the properties that we hunt. The biggest -and last- year I did it we recorded 193 different bucks. I know that might be hard to believe, but it's true. I had it down to pretty much of a science by then, but moving three cameras around every week, and spending 1 or 2 hours almost every day sorting through the photos and comparing bucks got to be too much work and, and I got kind of burned-out, so I dropped the survey part of it. I still run cameras -now four of them- pretty dedicatedly, but I'm a little more relaxed about it than I used to be.
            Even when I was running them hardest I didn't put them out much from about the end of February through the middle of May though, no point in spending money on batteries and gas moving them around when there are no antlers to look at.

              I use 1 camera and so far have gotten a bunch of does and a mom with 2 fawns that walks by once or twice a day. Only have 2 bucks, one has a spread that we estimate to be about 20 inches. The funny part is that he looks like a 4 or 5 year old deer on the decline in the antler department. He is only a 4 point. the other buck is a young deer who is a little 6 point.

                I would like to use a scouting camera, but I hunt public land. I would like to purchase one for my property just to see whats hanging around my backyard.

                  I leave them out year round except during hunting season. Have 2 nice bucks so far on cam. Will try and put them on profile pics. You should do the same.

                        Use mine for census taking as in how many trespassers enter my land.
