I have been camera trapping for several years, each year refining my technique a little bit. Last year I concentrated on better staging using a level and placing the camera with a good background (stage) for the animals. After using different techniques over the years there seems to be no need for attractants and scent blockers, either the set is in a good location or it is not. My thanks goes to the MN DNR, Scientific and Natural Areas Program, for permission to put these cameras on public land.
