The most important thing I have learned with the game cam is that location is everything. The time of year, and knowing animal travel patterns is the key to getting great photo pictures as well as great bow, muzzle loader, and rifle shots while hunting. So try many different spots and set-ups with your cam and you will find what works the best for your terrain and success. Most of all, have fun while you enjoy the great outdoors and our American wildlife. I'll put this as simply and bluntly as I can. If you have kids who enjoy animals and you pass through Louisiana without taking them to the Global Wildlife Center then you are an abusive parent who deserves to have your children taken away from you and raised by Republicans. Okay, so no kid deserves that fate, but I am serious: if you have a kid who loves animals then you really need to take them to the Global Wildlife Center in Folsom, Louisiana. My wife and I took our youngest son to the Global Wildlife Center for his birthday and I must say it was one incredible success. The Global Wildlife Center is essentially a massive savanna on which animals roam freely. This is not a zoo and you won't find a cage anywhere. There are essentially two ways to visit the Global Wildlife Center and we took the better one; a private tour with a bag filled with corn.
