Whitetail 365’s March 28th blog written by Scott Bestul tells a story of a shed poacher being caught in the act by a game camera. Game cameras are increasingly being used by sportsmen not only to observe game on their property, but also for security. Many Moultrie customers use their game cameras to monitor hunting cabins during the off season when no one visits for long periods of time. Construction crews have also found game cameras beneficial in keeping an eye on their equipment.
If you do decide to use a game camera as a security tool, it is a good idea to use a model with an infrared flash so attention is not drawn to the camera. Mounting the camera with a security box will help prevent theft of the camera if it is noticed. Keeping your cameras out year round gives you a dated record of who is coming and going, and what they are doing.
