I run tasco. cost $60. Have used them 10+ years. Only had one stolen. Just glad it wasn't a $200 camera.

Just ordered 1 section of climbing sticks.
What's the best way to check aiming cams? Basically point pull card out check pic?
Thanks everyone looking forward to setting things up

Something I've learned recently is to put your phone flush to the front of the camera then take a picture. That'll show exactly what your camera is lookin at. Be sure to use the "test" function too so it's looking far enough down at the ground to catch what you're looking for

Camera on your phone is a great tip never thought of that.
I used the set up mode and had my daughter walk around and the light was going on like they said it would but we'll see

Yes on formating the sd card. I do it everytime i put a card in . it erases all the pictures on card
Yes on reuseing the card. like said above formating erases them.
I carry a card reader with me, set the camera up and walk in front of it to make sure its the height that will get the animal your after. that way you won't be disappointed when you come back.
also make sure no  tree limbs that will set it off.
good luck
This is interesting to me. I've been running dozens of cams year around since they were first invented and have never once formatted an sd card. What does that even mean?

On my bushnells it erases the pictures that were on that card so its clear. I've also tried without and had the card not work then formatted the card and it will work in the camera.
How do you delete your pictures?It is a option in the submenu in the camera.
In bushnells instructions it says to always format cards that have been used in other cameras. Don't know why but thats what i've always done.

I had a cam out once for a 4 month soak.
At that time I was using my laptop as a card reader anyway ,I had a 1000 or more pics on it .but every time I would try to copy the file my laptop would say it's corrupted .I started formatting the cards and it never happened again.
I have ran a lot of cams with out formatting the card .But that one time not being able to view those pics rub me the wrong way.
If someone else is viewing or deleting pics off your card can corrupt a sd card also.

Alot of cams have formatting the card as options right on the cam .So now I just copy the pics to my phone.then use the cam to format the card easy peasy.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I've always just put new sd cards in and deleted any pics later that I didn't want with my pc and put them right back in.

Well if it works for you don't change it.About the time you do ,you'll check a camera with big tracks going by in the snow and the card won't work. Ask me how i know. :(

I have run cams extensively since the 35mm trail cam days and have never formatted a SD card

I had a couple of the kind where you wedge the 35 mm camera between 2 foam pads. You had to line it up with a plunger that hit the button on top. The camera was virtually unprotected from the weather. Then you had to wait for photo development to see IF anything was on it. SO much better now.
