2010 Trail Camera Shootout

How we Scored
     We modified our scoring just a bit for this years Shootout.  For each picture, from every camera, we place grid-lines on the photo to split the photo in 8 different sections.  The picture below is an example:


     We walked each distance twice (in 10ft. increments), to find a more consistent average.  For instance, if the camera scored a 3 on the first walk and a 4 on the second walk, it will be shown as - "3, 4." 


     If the picture is taken and the person is in the first section of the grid-lines, the score is an 8.  If the picture is taken and the person is in the last grid-line, the score is a 1.  If a blank picture is taken, the score is a 0.  Scores are then tallied and we come up with a "Total Score."

Below are the scores and rankings.
