Photography is an ever-evolving art, and trail cameras are no exception to that constancy.

The original trail cameras of the 1800s involving trip wires and flash bulbs have given way to remote, movement-activated stills sent to the palm of your hand, from the comfort of your home. The hunting-inclined can stalk from their home, send snaps to fellow hunting partners (“was that the buck we saw last year?”), share live-time video footage, and overall track the flow and movement of wild game.

Here are a few tips and tricks to consider, from placement to theft prevention, DIYs, and of course, information for our annual Trail Cam Contest.
