It can sometimes be difficult to choose the best hunting spot on a large area of land. You may find several areas with plenty of tracks, but may be unsure just how many animals there really are. This hunting season, reduce the guess work and setup a Trail Camera in the areas you want a second opinion on.
The Bushnell X-8 6.0 Megapixel Trail Camera with Night Vision 119327C is a great Trail Camera to use for both day and night surveying. Just mount the trail camera on a tree that will give you a clear view of the area and position it about 2 to 3 feet above the ground. This model has several handy features to make sure you get a shot of all the animals passing through the area. It can be set to go off at specific intervals for up to an hour and it also features a motion sensor which detects movement up to 45 feet away from the trail camera. Its lightning fast shutter speed of 1 second will also ensure that the animal it detected will be in the frame. The Bushnell X-8 is perfect for tracking wildlife at night or early morning, as well. It has 36 LED lights which illuminate the area for a clear view. Once you have left the camera out for a decent amount of time, simply remove your SD card and you can see what the camera reveals about the location you chose.
If you want to get further use of your Trail Camera during the off-season, try setting it up to track predators or use it as a security camera. You could even use it to track wildlife year round to get a better feel of your land. The information you learn from using a Trail Camera could help you get that big buck you’ve always wanted.
