Learn the various uses for trail cameras and how to use them. 

5. Security

Trail cameras have come a long way since the first camera trap used by George Shiras in the late 1880’s. One of the most considerable is the “Black Flash” technology, not only is unperceivable to animals, its unseen by the human eye as well. Thus making it ideal for security purposes on remote accesses or properties.

4. Perfect way to introduce the kids

I couldn’t agree more. Those of you with kids know it’s easy for them to shift their interest if they get bored. Making trail cameras an excellent way to enter the world of the outdoors. Telling them why you placed a camera where you did and what you’re trying to accomplish and everything to look for along the way, is an ingenious approach for them to receive knowledge without them realizing you’re teaching. Not to mention the excitement of every card pull, not knowing what you captured yet, it’s like Christmas morning to them too.

Wildlife images have captured our imaginations for years. Trail cameras give us a glimpse at wildlife in their natural behavior and habitat. For any wildlife enthusiasts this is something to be celebrated.
