336 photos before noon today.  This is one of the biggest reasons I LOVE cellular trail cameras.  If I had a regular trail camera my SD card would be full and my batteries would be dead before I went back and checked them.

There is a really nice big boar in this area that I would love to zip an arrow through.  He's not the biggest bear in the area, but he is probably one of his offspring.  But he drives me nuts every year.  He will come in, take the sticks out and then proceed to scoop out all of my bait on the ground.  He's emptied half to 3/4 of a barrel a couple of times each of the last two years.  Then he just lays on the bait and chows down all night.  But when he leaves in the night the next day the ravens have a field day!!  :)

Watching this one.  Really enjoy a thread that takes you from the beginning of the hunt process (research area, baits out), throughout the process (cam pics of everything that frequented the site), to the final and ultimate end state.... bear down!

So far sloooow.  Normally I get a bear on bait anywhere from 7 to 10 days after I get a bait out.  It's been 5 days so far.  Got my first photo last night that was not a scheduled photo, got all excited, only to find a brown snowshoe hare on the photo.  :)

I'm currently running the Spartan No Glow.  It cost me $5 a month for my Verizon plan and $3.50 for the website that lets me do updates from home.  Be aware the old 3G cameras like this one will no longer send photos after 31 Dec this year once all 3G networks are shut down, do be careful on "really" good deals on cellular camreas right now.  I would seriously look at and consider Spypoint cameras, that is what I am going to next.  The Spartan cameras are around $460 to buy.  Some of the new Spypoints are between $149 and $360.

Spypoints are really hit or miss. One is great, another is garbage. I have a couple friends who have experienced the same thing. Just a heads up!

Thanks, so far most of the reviews are good, TrailCameraPro is currently testing and writing up a review of the new Spypoint Micro.  Fingers crossed it is a good one, since they are priced at $149.
