Digital-Scout Game Camera

When it comes to taking photos, I admit I’m behind the times. While many of my writing colleagues now embrace digital photography, I’m still happy with traditional cameras that must be fed old-fashioned rolls of 35mm film. Drawbacks to film photography include the time and money it takes to have photos processed. Then there’s the fact you can’t immediately see the results – and, if necessary, retake the picture on the spot.

Penn’s Woods has seen the light and now offers a new digital camera to keep watch over game trails and record animals as they pass by. The Digital-Scout wears Realtree Hardwoods Green HD camouflage and operates 24/7 – scouting continuously while you sleep at home or go to work. Using a camera to track game movement and patterns is a tremendous help in deciding when and where you want to hunt. If few deer register in the camera’s digital memory over a period of several days, it’s time to move the rig to another location and mark that trail off your map. I’m always more confident heading to a stand when I know for a fact a few nice bucks have been frequenting the immediate neighborhood.

The camera begins taking pictures when its Passive Infrared (PIR) trigger is tripped by an animal moving within 80 feet. Movement alone won’t start the camera. The infrared trigger must also sense heat. In addition, the PIR electronics this camera uses automatically senses air temperature and adjusts the range accordingly. When it’s hot outdoors, the Digital-Scout shuts down to prevent false triggering.

Photo-taking range also adjusts automatically to accommodate light conditions. At night, the range is automatically limited to make sure animals are in range of the camera’s flash. In daytime, the range increases.

Another plus for using a digital camera to monitor trails is that you can review photos stored in memory whenever you visit the site. There’s no need to have conventional film developed, saving you both time and money. You also save money by not buying film.

Batteries are claimed to last up to a full month in continuous operation and come complete with a built-in recharging system. What’s more, you can remove the system’s Olympus digital camera and use it for everyday photo-taking chores. A Master Lock Python cable locking system is provided for securing the Digital-Scout to trees or other objects.
