I believe this is the same camera my buddy bought. Let just state that it doesn't work too well. So far with two 36 exposure rolls he has 1 deer 2 hunters (one is him), a combine and many pictures of nothing but woods.
I told him he should build one. But he wanted one in a hurry.
After coming to this site and seeing how easy it is to build my own cam for less than $100.(I have 2 so far)I cannot see any reason for looking at these high priced cams that will not work any better. (sensor and flash range is not any farther than we build here)
You got it yotee!! The way we built these things was by studying the commercial models for ideas. i like the case on that Hawk-eye and the ease of access.Also, $140 is not a bad price on that thing.
I loved the video for the bear contest pic that I received from you. I don't even have a camera out now, but I am trying to get one of these public land KY bucks.Gotta work opening morning of gun season.

Hi Bull Moose,
Hacking a few of the commercial cams is how I started out building my own cams too, about 8 years back.
The enclosure for the Hawk-eye cam is made by Seahorse Manufacturing. The only distributor I know of is a company called Serpac. These boxes are similar to the Pelican boxes and cost ~$2.00 less. My opinion is that the Pelican boxes are more than worth the extra 2 bucks.
glad your still kick'n round Bull.
But get that cam out ...there's a lot of competition for this years contest!!! I still have no bear pics....I guess i'm to busy shed huntin' in the spring.
Glad you got the vid I was wonderin'...yoteee'
