Let's see how many cams have been made from all over the country.  These cams would not have been possible except by the unselfish experimentation and information provided by Jesse's Huntng Page.  http://www.buildgear.cjb.net/ Thanks to all the guys who have contributed all the information and  designs to the page and forum.  :TST

How 'bout including too when your first cam was built, (approximately).

I got my start in March '01

I built Old Ponderous 4 years ago, a solenoid unit and the 1st Owl PF about Dec or Jan, 9 or 10 months ago, have built 12 or 13 of them and have several more in the works.......

and to repeat what Gizz Said:
Jayber - 18! Wow!

The deer in you're area really need those sunglasses! ! !

Two down and working on the third as we speak.


A special thanks to the Home Brew crew for all thier help and unselfishness.

Also a special thanks to Jesse to whom I bothered with a lot of email's and who wired my first camera. Anytime you'd like to hunt from one of my tree stand in NC just say so.....

Thanks,
Jerry

My brother and I have 3 for under $200!  Using the RS sensors and 2 owl pf dates, 1 af date.  July 01.  I don't plan to build any more cause I can't afford to feed them!  Might be worth getting my own darkroom.

18.....wow!

Has anyone had a homebrew stolen?

4 of my own and  helped a neighbor build 2 for himself.  He made the housing and I did the wiring.  To me the wiring is the easy part.  Hate building the housing!!

One down, one on the way here in Socal. Probably won't stop till I build a few more or my wife finds my parts stash. Thanks for all of the tech tips for us knownothings.    Scott

Built my first in 99', I dont actually know how many I've built since. I keep four on hand. I try to improve each one I build and sell one off.
With the efforts of all here and those at TNdeer I have certainly come a long way.

I have 4 so far...I built my first one about 3 years ago.  I happened to build my first camera using the  Canon Owl then then found out that they were well documented on Jesse's site.  I guess I learned the hard way.  After I built the 2nd camera I quit usssing the 1st one b/c it was a battery hog.  My 2nd one got stolen last year, and I have built 2 more since.
