Product Spotlight: Bushnell’s Texting Trail Camera

504

Trail cameras are one of today’s best scouting tools, regardless of the season. Winter, spring, summer, or fall, you know the quality and number of deer in your area because you can capture them with a motion-sensor trail camera. Unfortunately, hunters must return to the exact place they saw the deer repeatedly to pull the media card, an opportunity to spook an approaching buck or contaminate the site with human scent. Bushnell has taken this process one giant step forward with a wireless camera that eliminates the need to pull media cards by sending pictures just like a cell phone. Here are the details.

Deer 06 102Built on the award winning Trophy Cam platform, Wireless Trophy Cam HD is the ultimate next generation scouting tool. With the transmission of thumbnail images via email or text, hunters can monitor activity and keep an eye on the woods in near real time, while an exclusive smart phone app (free for both Android and iPhone devices) allows hunters to quickly modify camera settings. Hi-res images are saved to the web portal (www.wirelesstrophycam.com) where users can download images or change camera settings remotely.

Easy to setup out of the box, Wireless Trophy Cam HD utilizes patented Zipit Wireless technology and includes a prepaid AT&T data plan that provides users with unlimited thumbnail images for the first 30 days. From seasonal to year-around scouting, Bushnell offers data plans (no contract required) as economical as $9.99/month to complement a variety of scouting tactics, including a convenient pay-as-you go plan. Data communication to and from the camera operates on AT&T’s fast and reliable 4G LTE network.

6664602767_bac93437e0_z[1]As the industry leader in trail camera technology, Bushnell packs each Wireless Trophy Cam HD with a host of technologically advanced scouting tools. With a .6-second trigger speed and an 8MP camera that captures 720p high definition (HD) video, Wireless Trophy Cam HD helps hunters more effectively monitor game activity without stepping foot in the field.

Featuring black no-glow LEDs and an improved hyper passive infrared sensor (PIR), Wireless Trophy Cam HD captures game activity at up to 50 feet away. In addition to live trigger images, Field Scan 2X allows hunters to monitor game during peak activity periods like dawn and dusk. This time lapse technology captures images or video at preset intervals ranging from one minute to 60 minutes, while simultaneously capturing live trigger images.  With an industry-leading multi-month battery life on a single set of batteries and compatibility with up to a 32 GB SD card, Wireless Trophy Cam HD captures all the action all season long. In addition, each image or video features an information stamp that is loaded with helpful scouting information including date, time, moon phase and more.

Available exclusively at Cabela’s through March and at leading retailers beginning in April, the Wireless Trophy Cam HD has a minimum advertised price (MAP) of $599.99. Bushnell will offer several accessories for the camera including a security case and a solar panel that can be used in conjunction with rechargeable batteries to improve battery life.”
