I’ve been a trail camera junkie for seven or eight years now. I run a lot of them because I see the unparalleled advantage they provide. And in states where it’s legal, planting food plots and providing attractants can help get deer in front of those trail cameras — even help deer nutritionally. So check out these new cameras, food plot seeds and attractants from the 2017 ATA Show.
