Does any one use these? if so what kind and how good are they?
We are having a poacher/trespass problem at our ranch in Mills Co.
they are even hunting out of our blinds and leaving stuff in them.

I'm also interested in these. My questions are how easy are they to use? Also what's a good camera for the price?

PM JustWingem. He's pretty high-tech in this arena I think.

Covert Special Ops Code Black. I stopped using the texts due to a million racoon and hog pics. I set up a yahoo email and just have them sent there.

Just make sure you have good service, or I don't think they'll work well?

Meet the GW and sign the consent form for them to be able to file charges on your behalf when you aren't present. Let him know you will be placing the cameras and the GW will usually give you their cell number for immediate contact to catch the poachers...

Checked into them a few months ago. At the time, most of the models required service with AT&T through a partnership with the camera maker. Also, resolution of sent images was low only, making you wait until you accessed the memory card to view high-resolution photos.

Check on compatibility with available service providers before you buy. Otherwise you might end up with a camera that doesn't work with the only network in your area.

I have a Covert as well. Signal ain't great and the pics are average, but I'd buy another one if I needed two. I've got cuddebacks on the other feeders and move this one around. This was taken couple days ago and emailed it me.
