I have had to change my trailcam setup over the last few years.  It is a challange to have a big bull pick and also be able to get a bobcat.  I take more time scouting cam positions.  I also set me cams up higher and try to point it down.  Anyone else.

I started hanging my cams higher then wedging them down.
I found that the deer don't notice them or shy from the white flash as much that way.
They seem to be used to lights from higher up, lightening, planes etc.
Since deer are about the only thing around except for the occasional fox or coon.
Then I focus on trails or over mineral spots.

Almost all of my cameras are about knee high, some a little more, some a bit less. But, there aren't any elk in my area -- unfortunately. I've yet to see much evidence of a white flash disturbing any species; IR is another matter. My commercial camera has gotten sequences of IR photos showing deer that were obviously spooked by the red flash.

I try to set them up about waist high and point them down a little. I do miss small animals that are close to the camera but usually get moose and smaller animals that are about 10 plus feet away.
On occasion I get shots like this.

Bears and bobcat are real good at getting under the trailcam.

Are you sure about that and it not being a S40? Come on, work with me.[angel]
