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...

I looked into them last year, but the price sent me running eek

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.

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
