I only run 4 trail cameras each season and they are generally moved around fairly often, as much as weekly. As I am getting 'mature' in age seems like I'm having more trouble keeping track of where they are located. Even going so far as taking a picture of the location sometimes, when I think of it... There are regular locations that are pretty obvious to find but even there after 2 months of shifting them around it's hit or miss whether or not I'll remember that the camera was moved to a spot a mile from the original place.

Guess it's time to start taking pictures with GPS tags of every camera whenever they're moved. I have one camera on active duty that needs to be retired for the winter and now must wait till we have snow on the ground so I can follow all the game trails till it is located.

Am I the only one who misplaces his stuff??? And how do you guys keep track?

I was up in a tree this morning just thinking about that. My challenge would be getting the right angle. Great idea LA.

Adding reflective tape would be a good idea so you can find the camera.

I have had to stop and think a few times to remember that I moved camera locations. Luckily I have mine on private ground where the others with access leave them alone. I get a few pics of people out walking and every now and then a club member out hunting but have never had a camera come up missing.

I lost one for two or three years. After the leaves fell one year my buddy says, “Is that your camera?” Yep, it was. Batteries didn’t corrode, thank God, cleaned it up and it worked another year at least. When I sold that place I didn’t need as many cameras so I culled them, and it got sold. Still working though !:)

Bushnell, if that matters.

I found mine! And the dang thing was right where I left it. Next year, a cellphone picture every time I move one so no more of this nonsense. Getting older is interesting isn't it....

Try tying neon orange string from it, about 6 inches in length. Makes it a little easier to spot

Also a good way to have others find those cameras as well ;)
A handheld GPS device is my go to for locating

Fair warning, guys :p It only gets more frequent as time marches on.
I haven’t forget where my cams are - yet.

But I am guilty of buying something at Cabelas only to come home and put it in the drawer right next to the same thing I bought a few years ago. :confused:

Here is my golden moment trying to locate a camera. I spend 20 minutes at the waypoint spot and could not find it. However, it was taking pics of me. Yikes, iPhone in hand leading me to my camera. Yea, right! Eventually, I found it but come-on man....... :rolleyes::confused::confused::confused:
