I saw deer tracks behind my house.  I put a trail camera there with some corn and I don’t have any pictures yet.  Do you think I have my camera set-up correctly?



Sounds like you need to test your camera.  Simply walk through the area where the camera should detect a deer and determine if your presence triggered an event.  If the camera didn’t trigger when you walked through, I’d start by checking the batteries, camera settings, etc.

I hope this helps!
