Here are two pics from my second cam. Made some changes today. Got a few coons, two fox's and one buck. He's decent.
I can see 3 pts on his left side. To dark to tell if he has a brow tine on that side and way to dark to see the right side.

Here is what I do to prevent flash wash.  It is not too elegant, but it seems to work.  Someone on this forum told me that you also have to have 2 separate pieces of glass for each window otherwise light will travel from one window to another.   I took a piece of foam and with an exacto knife I cut the foam to fit the camera as best as I could.  Rubber bands hold it on.  When I change film and replace the camera in the ammo can, I have to be careful that I don't block some of the owl's sensors.

DHARTER >> Thanks. I was by the camera yesterday and made what I hope are the right fix's. Similar to what you suggested but with weather stripping and duct tape, camo of course :)

Only problem is I have to wait for another roll to finish before I can test the fix......

Thanks.

Yes, you must have separate panes of glass. Plus some sort of seal inside the camera housing. I used that black foam pipe insulation to make a tube to contain the flash. The foam wall thickness was easy to reduce with a sharp knife. Then glue it to the housing and trim the other end to the contours of the camera, leaving a little extra for a "press fit"
