    Mighty nice, the one thing some people don't consider with camouflage is breaking up the hard lines.

    I drove one of these vertically in every stud around the outside just 4” below the window ledges, adding brush can be done from the inside from now on. The roof netting was self attaching with the tin screws grabbing it everywhere, in fact I had a hard time spreading it out. The netting should gather falling branches and leaves for a very natural cover.

    Well, so much for cheap cameras. This thing is so slow I have a couple dozen pictures of nothing. Heck I drove by it and turned around and it only took my picture as I walked up. It would require a feed pile to get any pictures which I can’t do within 200 yards of any stand.

    I bought a Spypoint non verizon micro and it works great and the phone app software doesn't crash like the Bushnells I have. The plans are way cheaper too. The worst wireless I've owned is the Snyper commander, clunky app, ancient software and no support.

    I had a cheap camera similar to yours, only it was too sensitive, that year I had more pictures of the grass and trees moving around because of the wind blowing instead of deer. Absolutely frustrating to go out to check your pictures and see nothing of substance. The worst pictures were of the corp of engineer's bulldozer and pick up trucks when they rolled past by my feeder on the way to clear out trees along the dam for the reservoir I hunt by 3 weeks before general season started.

    Guys are sending me trail cam pictures and I don’t have anything to send back. Lol
    I guess I enjoy reading the sign the old fashion way (like I have a choice) that doesn’t take any batteries! But it would be nice to know what’s out there... maybe I need a mineral lick for this camera.

    We use this mix of the ingredients listed below, dig a bowl shaped hole about 36" in diameter, mix it with the dirt, preferably near a water supply, and they'll hang around like a kid in a candy store.

    1 part Hi Cal lime, feed grade
    Comes in 50lb Bags you need one bag.

    2 parts Trace mineral salt, the red and loos kind without the medications.
    Comes in 50lb Bags you need two bags.

    1 part Stock salt, ice cream salt.
    Comes in 50lb Bags you need one bag.

    Your my hero Barlow. At 72 years young still using a summit climber. Way to go !!! Keep doing what your doing. That's unbelievable to me. Climbers aren't a senior citizens game in most cases. Obviously you are in very good shape at 72. I guess using a climber enough will keep you there. Keep it up

    Always wanted to hunt Wisconsin. I hunt the UP during rifle season. Hunter numbers are low even tho the deer numbers are too. Just rather not see hunters. One day I'll make it to Wisconsin on a rut hunt.
