Game cameras are not just for hunting. Many outdoor photographers know the great quality they offer and use them to capture shots they normally wouldn’t be able to.
To use your game camera for photography, find a place that is well used by wildlife yet secluded so animals don’t feel pressured and pass slowly in front of the camera.
A water hole is a great place to place a camera. A drinking animal is usually pretty still and will be there long enough to give you many shots. A mineral or salt lick is another option.
If you want to get pictures of a specific species, place your game camera over bait. The choice of bait would depend on the animal you’re after.
Tip: Get a good look at wildlife with the SpyPoint FORCE-20 Trail Camera. It captures crisp 20MP color images during the day and clear black-and-white photos at night. Includes 16GB SD card, SD-card reader, and strap
You can have a lot of fun using game cameras for wildlife photography. You can even use them as security cameras around your home or cabin.
