Rack 1 – Bushnell Trophy Cam Update

On the 16th of March I set out the Bushnell Trophy Cam over a Rack 1 Xcellerator source. On the night of the 18th we had a very hard rain so on the 19th I went to spread another bag of Rack 1 Xcellerator and to check the camera. There were 2254 images! The 2 GB card was full.

Have you ever sorted through 2254 images on a computer? Not fun! Headache!

It would appear I have the sensitivity set so that when the wind blows it takes a photo – there were between 3 and 5 per minute – or that the camera is defective.

There was deer activity on the Xcellerator site for about 10 minutes on the night of the day we first set it out. None on the second day and then the camera card was full. The dirt was covered with deer tracks when I checked the site on the 19th though.

Going back to adjust the camera sensitivity. I’ll keep you posted.
