I cannot comment. :-[  I have never used a trail cam. :-[

I know a "True Man" never does this sort of thing, let alone asks about it, but...

Did you happen to read the directions? ;D ;D ;D

If I had to guess, weeds and wind could be an issue; mounting height could be a factor too.  Is there a sensitivity setting of some sort, maybe it's set too low.  Other than that, I am out of guesses.

You could also go to the manufacture's website and see if there is anything listed under the Frequently Asked Question section or perhaps in a Trouble Shooting Section.

I have long know that it is part of God's plan for me to spend a little time with each of the most stupid people on earth.

I see you're playing stupid again...  looks like you're winning too.

some semi-large weed or brush is causing movement and triggering the camera shutter. try placing in a less grassy area or position? Cuddleback is a great cam and doesn't have a lot of wind movement error......

the cam i use is a little too sensitive.  If i set it up facing the sun it will trigger from the heat in the mornings and nights.  If i set it up to the north or south (or in shade) it works great.........just a thought
