The Moultrie Game Camera Update
I purchased my game camera in the spring of 2016. You can read the full review of the camera here. At that time, I found it easy to use and reliable at taking good photos of the wildlife and domestic dogs who were visiting my place on the ridge. I highly recommended this game camera to one and all who were looking for a camera for wildlife, security, and similar purposes.
However, at that time, I did not know exactly how impressive this camera was! You see, I last visited The Shack in the end of August/beginning of September. The camera was re-positioned on September 2nd. I was not able to return until the end of December. I thought surely the camera batteries would have expired by then. But they had not!
This little camera has taken some amazing photos from April to December 2016 on one set of batteries. In fact, the camera continued to take photos as I opened it up in order to turn it off on December 28th.
My only irritation with the camera has been some user error. If you aim this at blowing tree limbs or the tops of tall weeds, you will end up with many, many photos of leaves blowing in the wind. However, aimed well, this camera takes great photos. With a lot as steep as mine, it's not always easy to aim it away from the blowing flora. But when I aim it away from the leaves, I am amazed at what visits my little bit of land.
Wildlife Visitors at The Shack
Dogs, cats (domestic), and deer have been the frequent visitors to my little camping cabin in West Virginia. I was thrilled to see what I would find on the camera during this trip. I hope you enjoy viewing my wildlife visitors and the changing seasons as much as I did.
Whether using a game camera for hunting purposes, security purposes, or just to watch what is going on outside, I highly recommend the Moultrie. What great fun to see what is happening outside when you are not there. And when nature is going about it's business without humans present.
My dream is to someday build a little gazebo or viewing deck under the crest of the hill (where my "yard" meets my woods) so that I can view this clearing which is invisible from my little shack deck. It will take some planning because I would want to build in a way that has low impact on the woods and wildlife but allows me to watch this activity in person. Until then, I'll just watch remotely via this wonderful little device.
