Years ago I bought a 35mm trail cam but only used it in my back yard. I never took it into the hunting woods because of all the noise related with advancing and rewinding the film and the constant attention it would need to replace film (I live 3 hours from where I hunt) On June 25, put out 2 digital trail cams in two spots with intersecting trails. I was up north for a family funeral on Saturday so I swapped memory cards and put new batteries in even though the existing ones were only ½ drained.
One had 222 pics and the other had 103 pics over the 16 days. There were 9 diff bucks from spikes to a 9 point, a few does and only one fawn. Now for the question.
What software or web tools are you using to manage your pictures? I created an excel spreadsheet with time (in 15 minute intervals) along one axis and date along the other axis. In each cell, I list the number of pics taken and notes as well as daytime and nighttime pics so I can sort on activity but this is a pretty clumsy setup. Is there some picture management software that others use? My plan is to only check the cams once a month as the advertised battery life and the month long test in my back yard show the batteries will last a month in warm weather.
