    A friend of mine used it to find out what dog was always using his back yard for its personal bathroom. He also has a few planted around to see who's running around his property when he's not there.

    This was not the intended use but it worked.

    I was haveing trouble with someone messing with my deer feeders
    (Cutting wires,changing the run time and the feed times and lowering
    it to the ground so the hogs would screw it up).

    So I hid the camera very well and caught him live and in living color.

    I wont go into what happened next, But the problem has been solved !!!

    On a lighter note I also use it for Turkeys.

    When whatever happened next happened, you made sure the camera was off didn't you?;);)

    Yes the camera was off, But I did use him to make a few scrapes and
    a bunch of rubs.

    Good one Gamehauler, I just blew Special K all over my monitor!

    We had a local sporting goods store troubled by multiple break in attempts, the manager hung one of his better trailcams near the front door and managed to bag one idiot. The cop took one look at the pix and recognized the guy as someone he had busted the week before.

    but I took your advise....

    I don't think that would load any differently. Code just tells the computer where to find the picture file. It will load the same regardless as far as I know.

    Nice pix!
