If you’re going to the trouble of placing trail cameras in the woods to help scout wildlife, you want to position the cameras in the best location and at the best angle. Placing a trail camera can be as simple as it sounds when you follow expert advice from Mossy Oak pro Dave Parrott of Louisville, Kentucky.
Many people will just hang their trail cameras, step back from the tree and say, “That looks good.” They do this without even seeing what type of coverage the camera angle has. This reason is why many people get pictures of only half a deer. Or, the camera is aimed too high, and they have sun glare on their pictures. If the camera is too low, you’ll get a lot of raccoon and turkey pictures. But, I want my trail cameras to photograph deer.
