Tips for Running Trail Cameras in Cold Weather
- Use Lithium batteries. We are putting our Lithium batteries on sale for a short time only, just so you can get some batteries in time for the cold weather.
- Have 2 SD cards per camera. Get to the camera, swap the cards and keep going. You'll leave less scent in the area but more importantly, it's cold! Get your fingers back in your warm gloves and keep moving.
- Get creative with your setups. Find a fox den or a log crossing over a stream. We've seen great images when a camera is placed over a carcass you find in the woods.
- Extreme temperatures require extreme trail cameras. If you live in an area that hosts sub-zero temperatures, chances are the less expensive trail cameras aren't going to cut it. They usually stop working somewhere between 0-10 degrees Fahrenheit. If this sounds like you, then you need to start budgeting for a acorncamera trail camera. Yes, they are expensive, but you'll still be using it ten years from now. This isn't a sales pitch, but if you need something that works down to -20 or -40 this is your only option.
Long story short, don't put your cameras away! Let's all freeze our toes off this year together and have some snowy pictures to share when Spring rolls around!
