Trail cameras are gaining popularity for Minnesota, North Dakota deer hunters
Fargo - Doug Leier likes to compare a trail camera to a high-definition TV when he explains the increased use of the scouting tool in recent years.
It's all about price.
"Ten years ago a well-to-do hunter had one trail camera," said Leier, a biologist for North Dakota game and fish. "And now that guy has three or four of them that are sending in the photos to his email inbox. Anybody that wants a trail cam can basically afford it now."
