Stealth Cam - Revolver

This thing looks pretty sweet. I wouldn't need it for most of my usual spots, but would be nice for food plots and field edges/corners.

It’s likely to have WGI roots since they bought the company a year or two ago. It looks a lot like the prior WGI attempt at it. 

Stealth sometimes finds a sweet spot for a cam and refines it. DS4K being one of them. Hoping this one is too.

I run a Moultrie Mobile on a P180 to cover a 180 FOV and get cell images. Works great. 360 would be killer in plots and corners and open timber.

Yeah it's a shame what I hear about them now, but the concept is appealing and maybe a better brand takes the idea and makes it work if this one doesn't.

Until I can hunt in my back yard I'll keep using them.

Depends on the user.  I use them just to take inventory and see what might be around.  I guess if your using a cell cam every 10 yards and overhead drone surveillance then maybe....

Depends on what a person wants in a hunting experience.  Back years ago a lot of people did large deer drives .  Was that too far or taking out the challenge?  Again guess it depends on the person. 

 But 11 cams on 117 acres still didn't get this one below closer than 40 yards and only once.  Lol.  They still outsmart me cams or not, but with cams I would prob never know he even existed.  And for me that makes the hunting experience better knowing that something like that is around.  It makes it more exciting.  

Plus I think your discounting the fun they provide with some great pics you would never be able to get in person.  Not just in pursuit of a buck.  It's part of the hunting on and off season fun of it for me.

I don’t know if you use cell cams or not but couldn’t everything you mentioned be done with conventional cams?

 

My problem with cell cams is the instant “ I guess there’s a slight delay” information that can be gained from the couch, work, etc. A cell cam that sees 100 ft in 360 degrees doesn’t give a deer much of a chance to hide.

I just use regular cams.  Can't get myself to use cell cams.  Not because of the lack of fairness so much but because I already hate work and if I am there and get a pic of a giant by my stand it's not gonna sit well. Lol. And I have 6 years before retirement to go yet.

You can set cell cams to upload the pics once a day. Pic a time your home and not at work, but are you disciplined enough not to change it, lol. 

The biggest advantage, I'm not giving those bucks a opportunity to pattern me.  

I laugh at those who say get a pic and run out and kill the deer.  Can it happen, sure, but some make it sound like it's a done deal and most will be successful. BS.  Ya, I've heard it.. my brothers, friend, girlfriend father shot his biggest buck ever that way, lol.

Use em, or don't..  I like mine

Agreed 100%. They still don’t make game cams with weapons attached so you can kill remotely. I now run 4 cell cams in two states. If my target buck walks by my NJ cams, it will take me 30 minutes to get there assuming I was dressed and ready to hunt. And my NY cams would take me 3 hours and 20 minutes to get there, again, assuming I am home and ready to jump in my truck immediately. They have zero to do with my choice as to if I’m hunting that day or not. What they do is to keep me out of core deer habitat for months at a time unlike my 20 or so regular trial cams I have to walk to for battery and card changes.

I don't go out and check mine just to check them really ever.  I pull cards when I hunt that spot/area on my way out so no extra intrusion.  And I live 6 minutes away.

And no I wouldn't have the discipline.  Lol

We always focus on the end tool.
