I get it. In this case, it's a real time surveillance camera. If used for such, they shouldn't also be used to provide real time data on quarry that you are actively hunting. IMOShit like this .. I know what’s going on now …coon dogs . Ironically it was today over noon hour.

I'm waiting for Starlink to start providing real time infrared satellite imaging before I start paying into any monthly mobile data plan. I may not be able to tell which specific deer are which, but I'll know exactly where they are and when.
I hear ya. At 7 hours away what can you do about the above pic?? But, not saying you would take advantage, when you’re on the farm the real time is a huge advantage from a hunting perspective
I get the call the neighbor thing but the locals know when you’re there and when you’re not. Not much you can do 500 miles away. Cell cam or not it’s futile
I know of 2 deer that were taken that would probably still be walking if not for cell cams. Both 170+. Both harvested within a few hrs of walking past a cam. The guys weren’t even planning on hunting those days. They got pics before sun up and slipped in to their stands. “I got the pic at 4:30 and shot him at 7’30.
No different than calling/texting a buddy and telling him where they are at. How is a real time pic any different than a real time text?
Some states have banned all trail cameras on public land and maybe that is the future for all states and maybe it's also for the best. Private landowners have the right to use whatever trail cameras they choose and probably always will due to the need and claim of "for security purposes". Some insurance Companies will lower the premium if you have cellular cameras protecting your property and equipment. As far as being an advantage; maybe maybe not. For the deer to bing to your cell phone it has to be moving so by the time you can get to that area and get in your tree or blind where is the deer now? Obviously, you can guess where the deer is heading to next and try to get there before it does. But will it go there? Will a doe take it somewhere else? Will other critters spook it and alter its travel route? Will it decide to head to water to get a drink and not go where you guessed? My 2 cents worth is no type of trail camera should be allowed on public land and landowners should be allowed to use them on their own land.….should be illegal. At least during season. I realize it’s probably an unpopular opinion as I love getting the pics as much as the next guy I really do. But, I’m seeing big buck after big buck being harvested that cell cams played a major major role in. I believe they’re the biggest “game changer” weve maybe ever seen in the industry. The ability to know where a deer is at in real time before you pick which stand you’re going to hunt as you walk out the door in the morning or evening is borderline cheating imo. I know of several 180”-200” deer taken in the last 3 weeks and almost everyone of them were in large part bc of the real time info.
Would these deer have been killed otherwise? Maybe. But from what I’ve seen this season it’s really changed my mind on it. Just too big of an advantage imo
I personally would love to see all trail cameras banned from Iowa public land. As for private land, personally, I really don't think people should have to buy tags or abide by most any hunting / fishing regulations when it comes to hunting / fishing their own personal property. It's their land, whatever's on it, is theirs. I may not agree with their methods, but there's nothing new about that.Some states have banned all trail cameras on public land and maybe that is the future for all states and maybe it's also for the best.
