This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Homesteading. (Note that this BB is part of a four-part choose your own adventure called Little List. You must complete four Badge Bits in the Little List.)

In this Badge Bit, you will check a game camera.

Some articles on checking game camera

  - Tips in Maintaining a Trail Camera
  - How to Program a Game Camera

Trail Cam Setup



From the video description:
"How to setup the trail cam. Once you see this, it is fairly easy.
This model can record either stills, or video onto a 32GB SD card."

How to Use a Trail Camera

"The crew from Whitetail Properties share tips on using trail cameras."

Best Time to Check Trail Cams



From the video description:
"Once you have checked off the basics of trail cam setup, when you actually access to check your trail cams can make or break your season. Here is an easy way to check your trail cams, without spooking deer."

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- check a game cam (check pics; fresh memory card and batteries)

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide:
   - a picture of the innards of the game cam next to fresh batteries and a fresh memory card
   - a picture of the game cam put back in place
   - at least six pictures from the game cam

Staff note (Steve Thorn):

I certify this BB is complete!
