Default Trail Camera question

How often should someone go into woods and check camera for new pics?? I would like to go often but try to stay out for a couple of weeks between visits. I am curious as to everyones view.

A couple weeks is good because you don't want to scare off the game with all the human scent. Go in, set your cam, and then boogie out and let the area settle down and you ought to see some good pics after awhiles wait.

We are doing ours every 2 weeks right now. Only because we fill the feeders every 2 weeks. We dont mess around and hang out. Add corn. Change SD cards and get out.

In the past when we didnt run the feeders all the time we would let the cameras sit about a month or so.

I would definitely wait as long as possible. If you know how long your batteries usually last i would wait until then.
