Default SIM card. Have you ever done this?

Or is it just my dumb ax...I pulled a card from a camera that on a feeder that’s in the yard at the farm. Put it in my pocket. Haven’t seen it since! I suppose it just didn’t get in my pocket but I dang sure looked for it with no success. Oh well. Lesson learned.

I bought a 10- pack of cards and have 4 cameras. Down to two of the 10 and 2 old cards! No idea where they went!

Yeah I've done that with my SD cards. I've found them later in shirt pockets, cargo pant pockets, on floor of my truck, or at the bottom of my gear bag.

I have a container I always keep them in and have a system to make sure I don’t forget to actually swap the cards.

I have gotten better, but some still go thru the washer and dryer
Looked thru 574 photos today and forgot to delete them before I put it back in the camera.

Pulled 2 cards a month ago from spots I couldn’t wait to see what was on them. Put both in my pocket, got home and gone. Couldn’t believe it.

More reason for why I use cell cams mainly!

Pulled cards the other day--5 cameras, and when I got finished with #5 I only had 4 cards. So, knew I was OK at #3 so went back to #4 and found it on the ground beside the t-post.

I have had this same problem. I have 10 cameras out and bought 20 new cards. They are labeled by location and either a “1” or “2”. I also bought a case to hold them. I will swap all the 1’s for 2’s putting the 1’s in the case. Just started it in September and due to family and work issues haven’t been back. Hope I am disciplined enough to follow through.

My luck - a coon would haven’t chewed it to pieces

My cell cam got a workout this week. Deer in Leon were active all day Friday!
Darn doe figured out how to lick corn off the tray on her hind legs.

I like the HME SD card holder better than the PLANO.
It holds them tighter

I pulled all my cards, getting 200 plus pics a day from a couple cameras just gets to much to look at. Some of my cameras don't have a frequency setting, cheap ones that are preset I guess. Primos.

Pulled a card for a buddy one time. I knew I put it in my pocket but when we got back to camp couldn’t find it.
Washed that jacket don’t know how many times, it finally came out in the dryer 2 years later. Crazy thing it still worked.

I've lost my share. I started using a card case a few years ago and it helps. I keep a few formatted cards in my wallet for the times I forget the case. I just put the pulled cards in the wallet so I know where they are. Helps a ton.

Never have a problem with losing them because I cant wait to get back and take a look. Cant tell you how many times Ive gotten the cards being pulled mixed up with the blank cards to go in.

I've to 3 card cases, 2 are Pelican cases and the other is a different brand. If a card has pictures on it, I put it in upside down. If it has been cleaned I have the label facing up.

I use a large seven day pill box. It has a blue side and a red side. I put the cards that I pull out of my cameras on the red side. I put the deleted cards that are ready to be put back in cameras in the blue side. Works well for me.

Man, some of you guys are real simpletons! There is only one real solution—stop running cameras. ��. This foolproof plan has worked wonders for me. No more cussing dead batteries or lost/washed cards! ��

My stupid phone case makes a nice little catch for dragging SD cards out of pocket, and gone to the black hole

Default SIM card. Have you ever done this?

I have like 6 of these I keep. And have them labeled “Used” or “Cleared” so I carry 2 with me when I’m picking up cards so I never get them mixed up.

Many a time I would be half way home from the lease and couldn’t remember if I swapped cards.

I've always kept them in a ziplock bag. I have exactly enough backups to refill each camera and I have each if them marked specifically for individual cameras.
I never wipe the entire card so I can look back at some of the deer on each camera.
