Congratulations on your new Modem & Trail camera! Get ready to view pictures from your living room, truck or even at work! For best results, watch our short video below or continue scrolling and follow these tips for mounting your camera.
Position the Camera Facing North or South
The sun can cause false triggers with east or west camera placement. North is best.
Position the Camera Parallel to the Terrain
Ensure your camera is mounted parallel to the terrain. This will maximize your camera's field of view and prevent any potential blind spots.
Point Camera at a 45-Degree Angle
Position your camera at a 45-degree angle to a trail, allowing more time for an animal to trigger the camera's sensors for a photo. Never place a camera directly across from a trail because it will leave less time for your camera to photograph a fast-moving deer or other object.
Place Camera Roughly 20-30 Feet From Your Target
This distance helps provide good lighting for a clear photo of the entire target.
Place Camera 2 to 5 Feet Off the Ground
Mount your camera to a stand or a strong tree that won’t sway. Ensure the camera is mounted at the body mass level of the animals you are targeting. As shown in example below, roughly 4ft high for deer and 2ft high for Turkey.
Aim Camera Level to Optimize Trigger Range
Place the camera so that the target is in the center vertically to ensure the camera triggers up to the full distance range of 80 feet.
Clear Vegetation From the Front of the Camera
Remove grass, small limbs and twigs away from the camera’s view to avoid getting unwanted pictures of moving vegetation.
