Recently my buddy bought two trail cams. He was very excited to play around with them and get to understand, or familiarize himself with the product before he put them out on his hunting property. The other day I asked him how things were working out and he said for the day he had them up they worked great but he took it down when the snow started because he didnt want a bunch of pics of snow. I have never used one either so i called a buddy to verify my assumption that the camera doesnt shoot photos of snow, but now i am curious to know why it doesnt. If the camera runs off motion and motioning is happening in front of the camera AKa snow or rain. Could any of you tell me the reason ?
