Put the camera on trails that you suspect the big bucks might be using. Move them around, leave them a week, if nothing move it to another trail. Hide them, he will shy away if he sees them and use scent control/eliminator. Putting them at feeders or food plots probably won't get the really big guys.

One of my best friends does alot of camera sensus work for Westervelt Wildlife Services.

They do not put many cameras on feeders.... Instead, they put out a camera in thick cover near heavily used game trails and then just put a pile of corn in front of it... Seems to work pretty well on Papparazzing the big boys that are leary of feeders and being out in the open...

The bad thing about just putting them on a trail is that you have to have a camera with a pretty fast trigger speed and you gotta keep the dial pretty sensitive so it will arm itself faster... this will give you a bunch of pictures of what seems to be nothing, I.E. Birds flying by, leaves/branches dropping, etc.... due to this, your batteries will also drain faster

If you place a camera on a known game trail, make sure to face it to where it is shooting down the game trail as far as possible.... this will help with the trigger time and catching the animal on film.

also, dont forget to keep it facing North and South... unless its REALLY thick
