    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.

    The guys that make these spammed another message board with adds about the deer motion detector. i don't know of anyone who has actually purchased one yet. I use my spidey senses to detect deer coming.

    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.

    Archer,

    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.

    I tried to build a few trail cams back in the day using a light motion detector and film camera. I never seemed to be able to get the trigger speed that the new digital motion cameras get and the price of film quickly out weighs the cost of a digital scouting cam.

    I believe this product would be incredibly useful for a guy like me. Instead of lights, I'd like a little tone sound... you know like an alarm clock. This would allow me to nap without having to open my eyes every 30 seconds or so to see if anything is walking by. You guys just don't see the beauty in this invention.

    Chris, maybe we could hook one up to a 12 volt battery and give you a little shock when something is coming. That way the noise from the tone wouldn't scare your game away.

    ive seen these too. It says on the box that you put it where you expect the deer to come from. Which they almost never do. I mean seriously think of all your hunts and how often were you 100% correct on your scouting assumptions? it seems like I never am, always surprised.
