You can get the best trail camera money can buy and mount it where big bucks and other wild game are sure to pass by, but if you don’t take care of a trail camera’s worst enemy, your money — and the hard work of scouting a prime location — will be for naught when it’s time for your camera to perform. Mossy Oak pro staff member Dave Parrott reveals a trail camera’s sworn enemy, and reveals a simple and inexpensive trick for keeping your equipment in excellent working order.
