Wireless / Cellular Trail Cameras

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Timberdoodle's open on the 1st!! right around the corner. Get out the SBS's
    • So the deer hunters of Minnesota are going to let a few folks spread CWD into the wild deer herd for the sake of money and do nothing?   Why aren't the hunters of Minnesota making themselves heard?  Where are all the organizations that purport to represent deer hunters?    The hunters outnumber deer farmers by many times over.  At least 100 times as many hunters as deer farms. 
    • Saw this and thought about the one you did.  I may have to try that soon.  🙂    
    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
