    I thinking of changing over to cameras that send the pictures to your phone. How do they work, is it worth it?

    I currently run 6 cameras, and would sell those and cut down to 2 of the other cameras.

    I personally enjoy going into the woods to check my cams. It's also a good way to see what's going on, especially during the rut. Your trail cam isn't showing you what sign is in your woods. jmo

    Yeah. I see that side of it too...I just feel like maybe I'm in there way too much.

    I'm getting one this year and putting it in a spot I want to stay out of until the right time. Checked with my cell carrier and adding the service seems easy enough.

    I have 5 Spartan Gocams. Love them. I Don't go out and change the cards unless I have to change the battery. I have 2 3g cams that are about 4years old. My other 3 are 4g and will send pictures and videos. You don't set it to send videos each trip but if you see a good picture of something and want a video you can request it. Video each trip will eat batteries and data. Very reliable. I have a Verizon phone so I just added these like another phone to my shared data. It 5 bucks a month for each. The premium plan from Spartan is 3 bucks a month each. I did make external battery packs for each. They last over 4 months. [​IMG]

    I have two......a Spypoint Link S and a Stealth Cam GXW. I really like them and it's great getting those notifications on your phone at random times that something is there. Very addictive!

    I have 3 cams. 2 Spypoints and 1 Covert
    The spypoints will give you 100 photos free each month or you can pay for different plans. The covert uses AT&T $25/3 months or 2 GBs. I evjoy them over the others, use them sometimes as a security cam if needed. But I reall like seeing what’s happening during the week before I go to my stand on the weekend, or if the action is hot then take a Vac day and head to the woods. I would sell my cuddeback and Stealth cams to get another cell cam or 2!
    I will say this the Spypoints have better signal strength than the 2015 Code Black Covert!
