It has been 95-100 degrees here lately so my cam is sitting idle. Am I making a mistake or would I be getting a bunch of pics without animals in them?

I think false pics depend more on humidity than actual temps out side. It has been around 100 degrees here a cuple of times for 1 week at a time and I still get no false pics. I make sure my camera is  in the shade for the hotest part of the day and that the sun will never directly hit it.

Other than that it is business as usual

It was over ninety for at least four days out of the last week.  I've got one setup that the week before had only four pics, this week in the heat had fifteen.  I'm with davered, I think the way you set it up has more to do with it than how hot it gets.  Most of the 4 to 5 false picks I get per roll are night time any way, and I think thats because I don't run a refresh on my PF...  I don't get false daytime shots because I set up in the shade.  At least thats what I tell myself, LOL

Most of my false pics came when the camera was aimed at the sunrise. Also had some when I had it strapped to a tree (pine) that was to small and moved alot on a very windy day.

I have learned to place the cam so the sun won't be facing directly into the camera.

It's been in the 90's here in WV and still hot and humid at night. Now it's going to be around 85 during the day and 60 at night so i put mine back out today. It's in the shade and by a watering hole. No bait this time but im hopeing this will cut down on the coon and fox pics.I'll go check it on Wed. and see what we got. Mike
