I got this spam email advertising a deer motion detector. It basically consisted of two motion sensors that looked like the sensors that come on the bottom of a outdoor light that turns on when there is movement and a control box that had lights on it. The idea behind it was you set these motion sensing boxes around your stand on deer trails and as a deer comes towards your position the lights flash on your control box so you get a warning that they are comming.
The whole system was like $45. But my question to you guys is do you even think this would be useful? It seems like a waste of $45 to me.
I guess that I am a traditionalist (somewhat) when it comes to hunting. This motion detector is not for me. Basically it is a canabalized motion detector that many of us have on our garage. I used one once to make a home made trail cam when they were still really expensive to buy.
I saw one of those it looked like a motion detctor from a outside light. It sounds like a big waste of money to me. I could use one for my kids in the yard though.
I always wanted to try and make my own trail cam. How did you hook up the camera to the motion detector? Does it have to be a digital camera?
The camera that I used was not digital, thats why I don't use it any more (pain). Trail cams are so cheap now that I wouldn't bother making your own. By the time you buy everything and figure out how to connect it all, not worth it.
