Anyone catching anything good on trail cams? I hope to get a minute and pull one of mine this weekend.
First time planting food plots as well kind of excited to see how their looking.

I don’t have trail cams out yet. I will put some out in a couple of weeks though.
Have some cell pics though.

No trail cam's out this year. My son is taking a welding class at school and going to make me up a couple bear boxes for my cams. I've got plenty of mule deer running around town and the yard and was watching a pronghorn buck chase a couple does through the field some 300y from are place tonight why walking the dogs. The mule deer and pronghorn are thick as skeeters around here. Do have a couple pics on my phone of a cow and calk moose I saw a couple weeks ago out scouting for elk.

I truly feel blessed to be living here.
I believe it. I know it's at the other end of the state from you, but if you ever drive that highway between Sundance and Devil's Tower at sunset, I guarantee you won't be able to go faster than 35mph. The muleys and whitetail are so thick up there it's like cattle walking across the roadway. We eventually conceded we would definitely hit one, they were just everywhere, and we very nearly hit one driving 35 mph when we made a curve. INSANE

Oldest boy and I took a drive south of town on some BLM. Saw over 120 mulies with 24 of them bucks. One group of 20+ had over a dozen bucks in it. 2 will easily make my top 5 list.

Just 2 random buck pics.

Nice looking woods Mr. Hoddy.
Mule deer from our 2 months in Colorado this summer. I put a game cam out the other day, but haven't checked it. Lots of work to do getting some mowing done and feeders filled in my future before opening day.

Couple pics from a trip last week on the North Platte River and the famed Miracle Mile. We caught at least 30 fish. Rainbows, Cutthroat, Cutbow and brown.

The North Platte is a great trout fishery. Looking forward to fishing it in a couple of years.

I got pictures of the BIGGEST Johnson grass, weeds, does and one helluva sinus infection from the ragweed pulling cards.

Why wait for for a couple more years? Lots of KOAs and other RV camping areas. Plenty of spots along the west bank of the mile for an RV.

I pulled a card Sunday from behind the house, ***** ***** and more *****. I have never seen so many at one time it was like they found the feeder and called all of their friends. I have never seen one around the house though.

We make our travel plans in the RV a year in advance. Just about have to now with the economy good, a lot of folks are buying RV’s and booking the RV spots way in advance. We will be back in Colorado next summer.

I don’t remember when it starts, but the ODW has approved year around trapping for *****.

I need to go to that system. I drive an hour one way to get where my cameras are located.

Is it a subscription you have to pay for or a certain camera?
You can buy a 4-pack of cameras for about $750 on Amazon. You can either get a 4-pack of the relay cameras or you can get 3 relay cameras and 1 cell camera. You have to have 1 cell camera for it to text you otherwise you set up one relay camera as the "home" camera and all pics go to it and you just pull that one card to see all the pics on the property. Just make sure you getting CuddeLink cameras and not cuddeback cameras. They look the same except cuddelink has an antenna on it. Cuddelink will send images but cuddeback is just their regular trail cam unless you buy an attachment antenna for them which is sold separately. You can have up to 15 cameras on the network feeding to that one cell camera or "home" camera. All the relay cameras feed their pics to the cell camera or "home" camera via a wireless network. The cell camera then texts or emails the pictures to you or the "home" camera stores them on its card for you to pull. Its over the verizon network and I have AT&T phones and so the texting never seems to work so I just set up an email box and thats how I get all the pics. You only need 1 cell plan to get pics from all the cameras and the cell plan ranges from 10-30 bucks a month. The 30 dollar plan is the one I have because it allows unlimited images.

They have about a quarter of a mile range in open country, less in heavy cover but they can chain to each other if one camera is out of range of the cell cam so you can extend the range that way. They have 2 down sides to the system: the pics are not sent instantly like a normal cell cam. Sometimes I get a pic an hour after it was taken and other times it can be 3-4 hours. It could be because Verizon coverage is a bit weak where I hunt though and they may come faster if you have good cell service. Other issue is that they eat through batteries about every 4 weeks since they are always sending pics back and forth and communicating across the network.
