I was recently asked what feature I would like to see in upcoming digital scopes. That question was followed by "Don't hold back make it a crazy idea".

So I replied, if you can equip a scope with live streaming capability and host the server on dedicated bandwidth and broadcast only to paid subscribers then that would be AMAZING.

The paid subscription and dedicated servers are to keep the data bandwidth as open as possible to allow for live streaming.

You see what the hunter is seeing realtime, audio would be an added bonus.

The hunters get an online profile, they can list their interests, hunting schedules, targeted animals (game cam photos of known frequent travelers) etc etc. Hunters can become "overnight celebrities".

They'll be able to communicate via sms/text messaging (Chat room style) with all users who are "watching".

Contests, sponsorships, good ole American fun!!!!

No wired connections, IP cameras to wifi servers on property, none of that - the scope is the transmitter and you press a button when you are ready to connect and hunt.

Would you stay out longer on a hunt, walk farther, HUNT HARDER if you had 300 users watching?

Dream Big !

You heard it here first by the way - - - I'll never see a dime from the idea but having the opportunity to participate in something like this sometime in my lifetime would be a treat.

A good point but you don't have to be the active hunter to enjoy this. You have family and friends who hunt? Ever been at home while they're out wondering what is happening?

That's the power of the dream, watching or as jgfireman relates vouyering the hunt

If I understand the proposition correctly, it would not work for me. My cell phone doesn't even work in most of the areas I hunt. When it does work it isn't even 3G.

A satellite connection might work using the Iridium network provided there are no trees. Don't know if it could handle the bandwidth or not.

I love the idea though.

I'd rather have a product that works as advertised, and at a price point that is reflective of true cost, and not price gouging.

You said "Don't hold back make it a crazy idea".

Something like:



That will allow the feed to be streamed via facetime or the like? Nope never been done before... first I ever heard of anything like that. So popular and needed that apparently everyone is doing it. Genius!

Back to my point. I'd rather have a Night Vision system that simply works, and with a price that reflects costs + normal profit not price gouging.

The concept is to have ALL technology built into the scope to do the chore.

That is the innovation part - make it easy for the user.

Not everyone needs attention. Some people (myself included) hunt for a myriad of reasons from the love of the outdoors, solitude, meat, to just enjoying God's creation and have little or no need for the attention factor of 'hey look at me, look at what I'm doing'. We are going to hunt the way we like to hunt, period.

Maybe you just need a little more attention?

Ben just like your name is not 'HuntTXhogs', no my name is in fact not Dave or Rockfish, LOL. Am I not giving you enough attention?

Or do you only want attention where it's in agreement with you and in support of your sales? Just be clear so I can be sure to comment in a manner that is pleasing to you.

I think you need a check up from the neck up...

loco

Again, please do not follow me around like a lost puppy and "TROLL" with comments that don't have a topic related aspect to them such as "Maybe you just need a little more attention"

I mean really? Really... When have you ever heard a full grown man say to another - Are you getting enough attention?

A little creepy if you ask me

When a grown man is acting like a little child, and cannot handle anyone disagreeing. Or maybe it is a grown man that cannot tolerate someone compromising his sales???

In either case, in fairness, I asked if you want me only to be agreeable.

Apparently anyone that posts on a thread that you participate in is following you around? You really are full of yourself Ben.
