Well these cameras that sync to your phone have been out for awhile now. I was hoping some of you that have used one might be able to give some advice on whatís working for you. Thanks!

I can only review one wireless camera as its the only one I own. The Spartan GoCam with Verizon service. Have used the camera for 18 months now and its still working flawlessly. It has been in the woods the entire time. I have the camera on my personal Verizon account...$5/month unlimited. I also pay Spartan $3/month for the premium service that allows me to change settings from my phone and a few other extra features.

Pros: easy set up, good battery life (18 months of use and thousands of pics..have replaced batteries once...12 AAs...thats with regular alkaline Energizers), good pics, good trigger speed...comparable to any higher end camera.

Cons: a little pricey at $240 and that was dealer price.


Thank God For Your Blessings!

You just need to have good service and the work well. I have 5 spypoints running year round. You will want more once you get hooked on one.

I've used them for 6 years now. I have a Spartan No Glow that has saved me more in gas than the camera ever cost over the last 6 years. Really shines when it comes to baiting bears and hogs. You know when a bait was hit, how hard they are hitting it, when it is time to go refill the bait. All those things you used to have to go and check and see and then look at your photos. I now have 2 of the Spypoint Micros and they are working very good. Nighttime quality of the photos is not great, but I don't need an HD photo, I just need to be able to generally see what animal showed up. They have more than paid for themselves over the years.

I have to agree with swamp wolf. Spartan gocam here. Their customer service has been great.
Nothing about yhe cam but all me and they fixed it/me. Working great. Love the schedule an event feature.
Can only use live traps for beaver. Cam take photo each day at 7am. Set it to photo 2 traps each.
Our COs in my area consider that a daily trap check. I go anyway but hit the ones with a catch first
Have a cheap bushnell pointed at spartan incase in walks away. I got a photo of who took it.

Thatís the problem, well not really a problem for the critters, just the hunter. Every fruit/nut bearing tree is producing this year. That is just one little ďgroveĒ that the deer browse through, and the more I scout the more Iím finding.

And I know you saw the deer in the brush.

.... Iíll be no help in here ... ainít a deer paparazzi... cameras strapped to trees in the woods ainít right.. sorry men but I canít be for that

... deer hunting has turned into animal husbandry and cia nonsense... before long yíall will be putting gps tracking devices up nubbin bucks butts so you can find them 6 years later

... get out there .. scout .. hunt .. and enjoy the mystery


Insert profound nonsense here

Savell, how many hundreds of thousands of miles of fence in Texas to keep a man's deer on his land? Does your scouting include making sure you're in your box blind at least 10 minutes before the feeder goes off?
