This Season’s Best Trail Cam to Give

55

A hunter can never have enough trail cameras. If you’re thinking of gifting a friend (or yourself), consider the Plotmaster from Day 6. This style of camera views a large area and is especially adept at surveillance, since the camera’s range is effective at 100 yards and you won’t have a flash to reveal the camera’s location. Here’s why the manufacturer believes a time lapse camera is a good choice:

Unlike trail cameras that trigger on short-range motion, the PlotWatcher Pro provides time-lapse video footage from daylight to dusk of game activity across a defined area. The average trail camera on the market captures images within a 50-foot range, while the PlotWatcher Pro takes time-lapse footage of an area out to 330 feet, which provides you with more knowledge of the animal activity in your area. With the PlotWatcher Pro, you can learn where the animal enters and exits your greenfield. You can’t get that knowledge with a basic trail camera.

The PlotWatcher Pro has the capability to snap images every second, the fastest available today, and will save images directly into video format.  Tru-Video technology, along with GameFinder software with Motion Search, allows you to view the images taken by your PlotWatcher Pro in a video format, with the power to fast forward or rewind, and advance to times of movement. It also has the capability to last up to four months in the field on one set of eight AA batteries, so you don’t have to constantly sneak in and out of the woods just to retrieve the images.

The PlotWatcher Pro is also easy to setup, both physically in the field, and electronically to suit your needs. Want to search for that monster buck on your land, or learn where that sly tom turkey roosts? Well, the PlotWatcher Pro has you covered. It comes with an adjustable strap that can be adjusted to fit around any tree and stay securely through inclement weather. Not sure where to set it up? Test it out for a few days in one location, and let it show you where it may need to be moved for a closer look at your prey.
