I’m just wondering because we had some new guys in our usually quiet area.

It’s not evidence but it made me wonder.

Save your .jpeg as a .png and the data will be lost before you upload it. I usually resize to 750 while I am there for better viewing.

It is a little more work but so is finding good hunting spots.

This site will scrub the meta data to the public facing side, I’ve tested it to see if it would in the past.

I learned on an old fishing forum scsurffishing that did not scrub the data and you could just Download all the fish reports images and then open on your phone photo map and take your pick where you were fishing today, those were the days. So I do .png for good spots and if they can triangulate off mountain tops and show up I would hunt with them, you won’t get lost.

Sounds like this sites okay though if I understand you correctly. None of my photos have enough background to figure out a spot (I think ;) ).

You're referring to exif data, lots of forums/websites say they automatically remove the data when you upload a picture. If you want to play it safe, open the picture and take a screenshot.
