Still working on it ,is where I'm at.
I did check all the winter cams,got a few carry over bucks from last year. Nothing really out of the normal.
Few bear pics also ,I'd say some areas I'm in.
Bears came out of hybernation around late March, beginning of April.

Been working on new cams,in new spots.
Those are the ones that have me most excited.
At the same time ,a lot of what if goes along with that.
I plan to set and forget most these cameras.
So I won't return till August or September,which I have no clue what will happen.
Bears could rip down the cam.
Memory card fill up, batteries die, get bashed or stolen.
Salt/minerals ate up from moose.

Part of the fun I guess ,all the what if.
All the cams have new batteries, a 16 or 32 gigabyte card.
Will see if they can last three months till I return.
I will view the most recent pics,make a decision to pull the cam,or leave and maintain that spot.
I have spent more time and money then I ever have in the past.
I will most likely spend my entire bear season checking/pulling cams with a rifle in hand.
My wife is usually very supportive,has said I've fell off the crazy train this year.
I'm only about half done,her and I are about sick of it.

If I do share pics with HW it won't happen till bear season august/September.

Goodluck , Happy camera hunting to all .

unfortunately its all for nothing if the cam fails, batts die, sd card fills or a critter messes up cam waiting to check that long. Had way to many scenarios over the last 20 years with cams to ever leave that long. 3 weeks to a month is the longest a cam gets left in the warm months for me not including winter where some just get left due to snow and if they work thats great.

I hate to say it.
But your spot on correct,right as rain.
Freaking king me ,RIGHT.
You are correct huntnnw

Went and checked a cam yesterday.
One of the first I put up,it stopped working middle of May.
Lost a whole month worth of pics
Some of these new spots I've been playing with, these deer have never seen a mineral site. So they are blowing up my camera.
I slapped up another cam. I'm gonna have to go back to some of the cams that are getting a 1000 pics a day. Set a delay, with one photo burst. So the camera isn't getting blasted like that.
Even though the camera was getting hit hard,not sure if I got a corrupted SD card or what. Cause it only had 8k pics ,but stopped working. I should of been able to hold another 8k. Battery not dead,put new battery in when put up. Sometimes these cameras just take a dump.

That stinks...

I hadn't gotten out to check my couple cams on the Westside for nearly 2 months. Glad I left them to soak! Finally had some bucks show up on one in the past week. Freshened up the salt, hopefully they will stick around!

Well I've been after it a lot lately.
I've had multiple cams not working. Basically most of my cams filled up the SD card within a month.
All the cams I have out I started out with two photo burst.
Just left the five second delay.
So I have been circling back,and changing settings on all my cams to one photo burst. And some kind of delay.
To minimize cards filling up to quickly.

So it's been a cat and mouse game,with new spots,first year using loose salt. Years past I never had problems with cards filling and causing the cam to stop working.

With all that said, I do have some new spots that are showing some good results. Most of my old spots have more activity then years past. Nothing I really want to post up yet.
Although like most hunting related stuff,it's a learning process.
Next year,all my cams will be on the lowest settings right out the gate.
One photo burst and a 15-30 second delay.
Sucks cause I'll probably sacrifice some cougar pic by setting a delay. But I also can't have cams not working.

Wanted to say GREAT PICS guys, like seeing success even if my own isn't great.
Thanks huntnnw for your advise to check cams.
Otherwise I'd be sitting with a bunch of cams that filled up in May come bear season.
