Best Trail Camera Accessories of 2020 | Best Gifts for Hunters
As hunters, we all love trail cameras. They make our lives easier and our scouting convenient. Trail Cameras (Game Cameras) are probably the single most valuable tools to a hunters besides a weapon. So we asked, what can we do to make trail cameras better, more effective, theft proof, etc?
Below are the things that every trail camera owner must have to get the most out of their trail cameras:
1. Lithium Ion Batteries
Lithium Ion Batteries dramatically increased battery life for trail cameras. We tested standard alkaline and rechargeable batteries against lithium ion batters using a Browning Strike Force Camera and there is no comparison. Lithium Ion Batteries will make your trail cameras last the whole season. Thisis essential for trail cameras scouting because nothing is worse than going to your trail camera after letting it sit for 2 weeks only to find a dead trail camera. Even worse it crapped out on Day 2 because it was such a good spot!
Don’t worry about batteries anymore. Get Lithium Ion Batteries. (Note: Make sure your camera is compatible with Lithium batteries. Most are but some older cameras may not be)
2. BoneView SD Card Reader
BoneView card readers allow you to check your trail camera on the go. You simply plug in the reader to your phone and then put your SD card or Micro SD card into the BoneView and you can check your pictures while out in the woods. With BoneView you can adjust your hunting strategy on the go if the trail camera pictures don’t show what you are looking for. We like them because we can grab the card on the way to the stand and spend some time checking the pictures in the treesstand while you wait for Mr. Big to show up.
3.Trail Camera Mounting Stake
There are tons of mounting stakes on the market so take your pick and your price range. The simple truth is that there is not always a tree where your trail camera needs to be to get the most action. With mounting stakes you can stake your camera into the ground wherever your heart desires. Gone are the days of missing buck pictures or valuable scouting information because there were no trees around. Get a trail camera stake mounting system to improve your trail camera set ups and scouting.
Okay, we admit we are biased but TrailCam SHIELD has become a must for all trail camera owners. Here’s Why, Trail camera theft has become all too common a problem. We spend all this time and money buying game cameras and setting them up only to be devastated when some jerk steals it. TrailCam SHIELD deters trail camera theft but giving the perception that the trail cameras has GPS tracking device inside and that the thief will be caught if they tried to take it. Sneaky, right? Science tell us that if we can increase the perception that the thief will get caught they will be dramatically less likely to take your camera.
How does TrailCam SHIELD work? It is an extremely durable, outdoor decal that can be placed on any camera that warns any potential thieves that the camera has a GPS system. It’s like the home security sign in your yard but for trail cameras. It can be coupled with an actual GPS system but most use TrailCam SHIELD as a stand-alone deterrent.
Plus, it is only $5.99. At that price you protect your whole fleet of trail cameras at the same price it would cost to buy one lockbox. Also, when looking at the big picture $5.99 is bargain compared to the hundreds of $$$’s you will spend replacing your cameras after they are stolen
Now you know our top picks for trail cameras accessories for 2019. These will make your life easier and trail camera use more effective. Trial cameras have become the best scouting tools on the market and with these four products we hope that you will have even more success this fall.
