Wireless / Cellular Trail Cameras

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone own one?

With those of you that have trail camera's a considerable distance from your home and with the rising cost of fuel, wondering if more people are looking at using these types of trail cameras. I don't know a whole lot about them and I've just started to look into and learn about these. But, boy-oh-boy do they know what they want for them. I tried bringing it up to my wife (and even though I don't have the budget to purchase something like this right now) I jokingly, with some truth to it, tried selling the fact that I could save on this camera in the long run. I wouldn't' have to fulfill my obsession and curiosity, by burning up fuel, driving all that way to view my vids and pictures, but instead check them out with my cell phone or online at the service web hosting site. Even though it is on private land, doesn't mean that someone couldn't walk away with it. That along with the price has to be the 2 biggest down falls or concerns.

Just curious...

If I remember right - through Cabela's there is a leasing program for these things. Although, where I hunt there is no cell phone signal so it would do no good.

That takes the "outdoors" away from the outdoors. I mean where do you draw the line?You have your automatic deer scent dispercers, scent killer, electronic calls, decoys, heated stands, four wheelers, crossbows, lighted nocks (or even the ones with the adds in magazines that detatches in the deer and you use a trcking devise to find the deer you just shot), special lights to make the blood show up better etc..... I am not saying these are bad things but where will it end? People shooting deer from there desk chairs??

Part of the appeal of putting out my camera is to put on the boots, hump it into the woods and get a little exercise.

they already have the desk chair hunt in Texas. Living an hour away from where I hunt I have looked into these, I would have no problem buying one if the price comes down, scheels had one for $650. It would also keep your scent out of the woods.

    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
