  Well the big step into high tech hunting has been breached. This is my first owned trail cam. I picked up the Truth cam 46 last night. The 46 is the number of IR LEDs used in the night mode illumination. The camera is just a little bulky compared th some of the newer version but the larger array of LEDs require a larger box. It is powered by 4 D cell battery's. It will accommodate up to 8 GB SD card for storage of Pictures and video.
Not getting home from the office until after 10:00 I was in a hurry to get it up and running. Lucky that this unit is very easy to set up. It only took about 10 minutes and I had it set to go. I only used the Nylon strap that was included to attach it to a tree just outside my back door. I had it up and fired the first shot by waving my hand to set it off.  This is near to the view in the daylight. The Power pole is 23 Yds from the camera.
The first shot to verify the alignment.
 The line of lights left of the PP is channel 8s transmission tower about 4 miles away. It shows how how sharp the image that this camera has.
 Well the camera is set. So back to the garage to install my wifes new windshield wiper blades.
Then watch Border wars. At 12:40 AM I turned off the lights to go to bed. I looked out the window and saw a Deer near the back fence. Little did I know that they had been playing for the past hour.
At 11:31 the first 2 deer arrived. The quality of the pictures taken at 3MP (the middle setting) is very good. Whether it is the glow off the IR or it is the slight click when just before the camera goes off draws the older does attention but does not spook her.
Now there is 4. The Doe is keeping a watchful eye.
The low shutter speed has a little blur on the walking deer but it is not to bad and is acceptable level  for me. I have seen much worse on much more expensive cameras.
Even at 20 Yds Momma is still watching. The image is better in the full version than in the reduced size used to be uploaded on the site. Left and out past the pole the 4th deer is at about 45 Yds.
They are about finished with the handfuls of corn I put out for the test. This is about the time I turned off the lights also.
I had 37 pictures shot of the first outing. This is the last just at sunrise. The fog was very heavy this morning. I had deer in all the shots except the first and the last. The fog is so heavy I can't tell what may have set the camera off. The Power pole is 33 feet off the corner of my deck. I have lived here for 4 years. I have seen deer crossing but never realized that the deer played in my back yard. I am rather happy with the results of the Premos Truth Cam 46. With the price under $120 it is a very good buy. The only con I notice is that the IR beam is much more narrow than the field of view. I hope you have enjoyed my deer. I will follow up a more after putting a little more time on this unit.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.
