    I can't seem to catch much on my trail camera yet I live in a secluded forest...lol..so I then realized that the camera is aimed up at the sky DESPITE being on the ground almost. I started at 3ft and have went downward but still I am taking pictures of clouds and the tops of 100 ft trees. What is up with that? I tried to angle it downward but why would I have to do that in the first place..why did they make it that way..deer are not hiding in tree tops either..lol. But regardless nothing works well enough to be able to see the ground which is where the raccoons, minks and foxes are. Any advice appreciated.
