I have had a trail cam for a couple of years now but haven't really used it much.
I have finally embraced the ins and outs of the trail cam etiquette, have various baits out for the many different visitors and woodland creatures, comfortable with the subtle nuances of the cameras working, and blow me.......
it's bloody broken.
two wires have fallen off, the nice Scandinavian gentleman i spoke to has advised me it is a hardware issue and it is kaput.
So my next purchase shall be a soldering iron, and possibly some healing salve to put on the burns i shall no doubt receive.
