STEP 2: Location
Now the fun begins! Where is the best place to put your camera? Ask yourself:
1: Where are the animals trying to go?
2: What is the easiest way for them to do that?
Often, it is easy to forget the second question. Animals like to take the path of least resistance, not rugged wild space in the bushes. If you are out on a hiking trail, place your camera facing one direction on the trail. Simply, find a tree and tie the camera on. (invest in a lock if the trail is public!) This way you will be able to see the animal coming towards the camera. Intersecting trails are also a great opportunity for capturing wildlife as there is double the chances of something coming by!
