October Is Here
With game camera viewers starting at around $50, why would you want to add one more expensive device to your hunting pack when you probably already have a great viewing device in your pocket. Smart phones today are so powerful and have multiple uses why not use them to view those deer pictures from your game camera. I also like to use my Nexus 7 when I am out checking trail cameras. It works really well because of the larger screen. The app that I really like is Nexus Media Importer and the free version Nexus Photo Viewer. I have created this video on how to use it and some setting changes that I made.
This app allows you not only view the photos, but to also import them to your device and gives you the option to share them. This is a really nice feature because it gives you the ability to save the pictures that you want and then put the card back into the camera, format it, and you are back in business taking more pictures.
This app only allows you to view the photos which is nice, but I wanted the extra features.
You will need a couple pieces of hardware to make this all work.
I found this cool device that eliminates the separate OTG cable so you only have to deal with one piece.

In a recent SC DNR newsletter they explain toxoplasmosis parasite. It is a very informative article and I thought I would share it. The most important part is that beef, pork, lamb, and deer can carry it. The good news is it is easy to protect yourself.
1. Don’t handle raw meat if you have open wounds on your hands. This includes skinning\cleaning your harvested deer. What I find that is great when cleaning deer is to wear field dressing gloves.
2. Freeze the meat before you cook it. This will kill a majority of the parasites. One way I have found recently to package many things that I store in the freezer is with a vacuum sealer. This sealer will pretty much eliminate freezer burn if you get a good seal. With the roll you can make your bags any size you need. Also, you can make the packages uniform which makes them stackable for the freezer.
3. Cook the meat thoroughly. (Venison 165°)
