Bushnell Trail Cameras-A Product Review

This mother bear and cubs were photographed with my boy friend's Bushnell Trophy Cam which is anchored to a tree on one of the many back trails we hike. She's quite large which tells us she's a good bear, knowing how to stay away from humans and out of "trouble".

A second camera is placed near the driveway. What a surprise to find a large bobcat using it for his travels. The camera records the time and temperature. This image was taken in the evening on a hot summer day.

A small wild hog, whose mother was later recorded feeding with a herd of about 15 near one of our many trails, seems quite intent on getting his picture taken.

The cameras are housed in a sturdy box which is anchored and locked to a chosen tree. There are settings for 5 or 8 mg pixels. You can also choose how often a snapshot is taken once motion sets it off.

To avoid thousands of photos during a windy day, sensitivity settings allow the owner to decide how much motion is required to initiate photographing.

My boyfriend bought his Trophy cams at
I'm enjoying the adventure of seeing all the animals roaming these woods so close to home. Many animals are quiet and never seen in their natural settings.

The camera can also record video.


  1. My brother uses a trail camera on the only approach route to his place. I'm considering doing the same. Lets you know who or what has been wandering around your area. I liked your pictures of the animals.

  2. Thanks, I agree we have one focused on the driveway for that reason. Caught the bobcat coming up it!

  3. A Trial camera's detection zone is that the space during which once movement is detected triggers the camera to require an image. Detection zones vary from short and wide to long and thin and everything in between.
