I looked back through my pictures, the batteries in camera #1 are dead. It's last picture was a week ago. That camera has been out since April, 2016. I replaced the batteries in November, 2016. Fifteen months on 2 sets of batteries, and I'll guess somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 pictures, that's not bad.
Camera #2 is averaging more than 20 pictures per day.
I've never heard anything about trail cam maintenance, I'm going to bring that camera home and give it a good cleaning. Thinking about tree pollen, water dripping off of the timber, etc. Seems like it's pictures aren't as crisp as they were a year ago.
