Innovative Trail Cam

In this busy hi-tech world, it may be hard to find the time needed for proper scouting and finding those whitetails. More and more hunters have embraced this technology and have purchased trail cameras to do some of their scouting for them. 

I have recently tried the Vision 8 Lightsout Tru Brown trail camera from Wildgame innovations. I installed the camera near one of my treestands in a thicket. And I was pleasantly surprised to see 3 different bucks in the immediate area of my stand. I even have a nice clear picture of a young 8 pointer working a scrape.

With a trigger speed of ½ of a second, you can be assured that you will not miss any game that walks in front of this camera. It also takes video for up to 30 seconds. With a 32 GB SD/SDHC card that is not included, you can store as many pictures as you want and with 8 AA batteries (also not included), it will continue to work even if you can not check it for a while—and you will be able to see what the camera sees up to 65 feet away! Amazing!

To keep people honest, it comes equipped with a lockable door and a space for a cable lock. Personally, I think it is sad that you even need such a thing but I understand perfectly why they are there. A durable strap is also included to mount the camera.

The bottom line is that the Vision 8 Lightsout Tru Brown trail camera takes amazing pictures and after many days of cold, wet, miserable weather, the camera worked flawlessly. I can’t wait to see what this camera captures next week!
