Best Wild Game Trail Cameras For The Money – Reviews & Ratings
Imagine seeing a grizzly and polar bears together, scavenging the leftovers of a whale carcass toward the edge of an Inuit community in Alaska. Imagination not needed. The images are real. Little did we know previously that the grizzly traveled that far north, nor did we know that the grizzly will dominate the polar bear. Trail camera images were also taken of the rare red wolf in the wetlands of Florida. This nocturnal wolf is endangered and never seen close up and personal.

Day 6 Plotwatcher Pro HD Game Surveillance System
The Day 6 Plotwatcher Pro HD Game Surveillance System is a video trail cam that can save up to one million images. As a surveillance camera, by posting the cam on the trail it can be set-up to take photos every 5 to 10 seconds over the course of the day, from dawn until sunset. The details can be condensed into an HD time-lapsed 10 minute video review of all the images, to assist in scouting an appropriate location. The Plotwatcher’s GameFinder software enables a full review of saved images, frame by frame, with video resolution of 1280 x 720. Compatible zoom and wide angle lenses are available as add-ons. The unit has a 4 month battery life. The cameras allow even the novice to capture flawless wildlife in their natural habitats. Except for the Plotwatcher, they are all digital still frame cameras. Each captures images on a 32GB SD card for convenience and large memory capacity. Each has sophisticated infrared night vision with a 45 to 100 foot range. The infrared flash is beneficial because it avoids stunning the animals. Trigger speeds range from the fastest of 0.5 to 1 second. The faster triggers capture the most interesting images.
The surveillance camera differs from the other cameras because it is a daytime only video camera and performs a different function. It was developed to identify the correct trail locations and therefore has greater battery life and a wider distance range.
