Here is part of a series of pictures I got on film last night. I didn't want to be in there since I put the camera out on Monday. I also didn't want to lose the keys to the trail cameras out there either. My friend with a metal detector was able to do it today, so while finding the keys with his metal detector I was changing camera cards. Sure glad I changed the cards. More glad I rotated the camera to face a different direction! Wowza!

Hells yeah Phil. That would have been some cool video. I got a five minute series of photos a few nights ago of a spike and seven sparring around a bit. Definitely cool!

What I would like to have seen was the whole series on video as well. That would have been sweet! I have been impressed with the 2010 model Trophy Cams. Many of the three shot burst mode pictures have been one picture per second. Three seconds equals three pictures is pretty good in IR mode I think. The delay between 3 shot sequences was about 24 seconds. This 24 seconds was in the middle of the sparring match. Poor little forkhorn got his azz schooled by the bigger buck! What you are looking at is the beginning and end of the session with 24 sec missing in the middle. I think that is a bit more than just tickling the tines. Lil' forky just found his place in the pecking order!

Awesome series of pics, Phil. I set my cam to video mode the other day, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what kind of footage I get back.

The only thing I don't like about the Bushnell TC is that the night time pics blur quite easily if the animal is moving. During the day, this doesn't seem to be much of an issue. I'm guessing it's due to the camera taking IR pics at a lower resolution. It's not a big deal though... I'm thoroughly satisfied with every other aspect of the camera. For all I know, this could be a common issue with IR cameras across the board, but this is the only digital trail cam I've owned so I don't know. BTW... over 7000 pics and numerous videos, and batteries are STILL reading full juice. :smiley_bril:
