The main things with a bed camera is having a good entry and exit, knowing when to check the camera depending on weather and wind and when the bed is likely empty, and not checking it too much. If I put one up on buck or doe bedding I want to leave it for at least a month or more or may not check it for an entire season, it just depends on access and weather conditions.
Great points brancher. I plan on using multiple cameras on this year to try and find the entrance/exit routes the buck is using. I won’t be putting my
Camera near the beds though probably a couple hundred yards away. I may put one up closer and let it be for the entire season though.
I think it’s important to use the same entry/exit strategies you would when hunting when checking you camera, use the wind to your advantage and check the camera either during a rain or right before a rain to wash away any ground scent.
