I know the cam companies like a north facing camera placement. Also how high do you like to mount your cameras? There are good and bad points to both the high and low placements.
Neat idea with the sticks..Looks like a couple of my lone wolf stick may be pulling double duty...Only issue I see for me,is when I check a cam on the way to or back from hunting...I would have to pack or unpack to use the sticks..in a tree about 10 feet off the ground sitting on a homemade bracket that angles the camera about 45 degrees. helps prevent theft and i think deer dont notice it as much.
downside...i gotta use climbing sticks to set it and check it....but ive had too much stuff stolen on private property.
unfortuneatly, last time i used a low straight angle camera...i didnt get to see what was on it because someone stole the card and batteies out.Sometimes I think the low angles catch more animals.
Which camera model/manufacturer is it? i would like a cheap one to place on some public land that isnt like a cuddy. I know its a stupid idea but any private land i would hunt is 2.5 hrs away, the public land is not used as much and i feel that some of the places i could put it could be somewhere that most folks wouldnt even normally venture toI put mine about 3to 4ft off the ground and to be honest I have a cheap cam and it takes good pics so if someone steals it I could easily take my POP can collection in and. Get another one!!!!

i use this method as well. works great for me. but i would like to try the looking up method. seems you could get some intresting picsWhere and how I mount mine depends on the lay of the land and the shape of the tree I attach it to. Usually it's between 4' and 6' high; sometimes I use a stick behind the cam to angle it downward.
