There was a guy here in SC making them, HawkinsOutdoors, from military ammo cams with welded chains and camo paint.  I have looked at his page and not working...and cannot find anything on him anymore.  I too am looking for one to use this season before I try to make my own next winter when I am between seasons.  If anyone has one for sale let me know also...or a contact.  If not looks like the Moultrie for me since it is the cheapest I can find in Cabela's...Great site though...just wish I was mechanically inclined for the DIY stuff...but I could &^%$ a wet dream...

TradHunter >> If you check Jesse's Info on cams you'll see a cheaper price for the Moultrie than Cabela's. I was thinking about going that route but ended up making my own. Jesse wired the first cam for me and I did all the rest. Currently working on #3.

Good Luck.

Guys, It is really not that hard.  For what you will buy one for, you can make 2-3.  The first took me about 10 hours to complete (I was trying to do something more than the diagrams showed- experimenting).  The second took 4 hours.  The wife left with the children one afternoon and I went to work on it.  If you get the supplies before you start it should not take that long.  You can do it.

I second what possum says! Up until 3 weeks ago I had never soldered anything in my life. Now I have 1 cam in the field and another under construction. Those circuit boards look very intimidating. I got over this by finding some junkers(try a tv repair shop) and practicing until I felt comfortable. Follow the instructions on Jesse's site EXACTLY. If you run into trouble post your question-These guys RULE!!   Scott

I am currently making these cameras to sale.  After I started telling my friends about them they sold me on the idea to make and sell.  This hobby is just about as addicting as hunting.  I use a Pelican 1150 box, two 6volt lantern batteries wired in parallel, a ms20 sensor, a red walk-test light and, a Cannon Sure Shot PF Date. First Pics have turned out great, but did have some misfires.  Will try correcting this with some tape on the sensor.

I live in Glasgow.  This is the coolest site on the net.  Good to know there are some ol' hillbillies around here.
