I need some suggestions on exactly how high I need to put my cam off the ground to avoid pictures of Raccoons, Foxes, Opossums, etc... I have taken two rolls of nothing but Raccoons the past two nights and I feel that I'm only waisting my film. Thanks everyone!!!

whitetailfan,
Don't know what kind of PIR you are using but I've read where you can tape off the lower part of the MS if you are using it to help stop getting some of the smaller animals.  I usually try to put my camera aimed about waist high at the distance I think the deer will be.  bat

I put my cams about 1-1 /2 feet up, If all you want are deer try 2 feet
I keep mine low for the turkey shots:laser-shoot:

I was having problems with coons so I just stoped using corn to bring in the deer.  Now I just put my cameras on known deer trails or in bottleneck areas that force game to walk by the camera.  I usually leave my cameras out for two weeks to be sure all the film gets used up.  Good luck.

I use Deer Cain which is a mineral lick that you mix with water.  I pour it over a stump in an area near deer trails and get all deer.
