Are you looking for a new trail camera? We have compiled the 10 best features to look for when buying

Many hunters consider trail cameras to be simple devices with which we can capture some pictures of deer. This mindset means most of us simply buy a trail camera, strap it to a tree and walk away. This deer-scouting strategy can work; it just doesn’t work very well. And it really doesn’t take advantage of the technology built into today’s high-tech trail cameras.

If you’re ready to purchase your first trail camera or you’re thinking about replacing or supplementing your existing camera lineup, here the 10 best features to look for and a few quick tips on how to make the most of your trail camera setups.

1. Quality Versus Quantity

Before you think about setting up a trail camera, you’ve got to choose the right one. There are two types of individuals here. The first buys several low-quality, low-cost cameras and peppers the woods with them hoping he will get a full season out of them before they crash. The second buys one or two quality cameras and moves them around the woods as much as possible to gather the right intel. There are benefits to both strategies, but the reality is for about $200 you can purchase a high-end trail camera. Do some research and find offerings that won’t break the bank but offer all of the deer-spying technology necessary to cover you in a variety of situations.
