How many trail cameras are needed to pattern whitetails?
Keep up the good work!
I like to use as many Reconyx trail cameras as practical given time and budget constraints. The Proving Grounds (my place) is 1,500 acres and I try to use one camera per 100 acres when doing an official camera survey and I continue using them to scout with throughout the season. Using Ansmann rechargeable batteries has greatly reduced my operating costs! I have other projects where we “leap frog” cameras as we don’t have a camera per 100 acres. We get usable data, but not as good as using a camera per 100 acres simultaneously.
