New Game and Trail Camera

My family and I have become big fans of Game Cameras for keeping us up on what wildlife come to the feeder at our place. Due to the hectic schedules we all keep we do not get out to the place enough to know what wildlife is there and the camera records much of that for us. It has become an addiction to see what has showed up between trips. I have had a Bushnell camera that we have been very pleased with except that it uses four D cell batteries about every two to three weeks. It is not cheap to keep it in batteries and means if I do not get there in time it stops taking pictures. Other than that we have been quite satisfied with the camera.

Technology keeps advancing and Bushnell has come out with a new camera that has a lot more bells and whistles and is about half the size of our current camera. Best of all it runs on a set of four to eight AA batteries and they will run the camera for 6 months to a year.

That was enough right there for me to order one and it is on the way. The best price I found was $199.00. I did find it at $199.00 with free shipping and a $50.00 gift card good on your next purchase. You can purchase or read all the camera specifications at the following link.

For about $50.00 more the camera is available with a viewer so you can see the pictures in the field. I just usually take a lap top to the ranch with memory card reader and then I have them in my computer to look at or edit. Here is a link to the camera with viewer.

As soon as I get a chance I will put it out and give it a good test and report back on the camera. Mean while if any of you already have the new Bushnell Trophy Cam post your results or experiences in the comments section and let us know what you think.
Hope you get some good pictures, Wild Ed
