I posted a sale on these several weeks ago at 99 bucks ea in the Open Hunting Area.
They were 288 on Amazon. We picked up six or so and last week I went and got some AT&T SIM chips for two of em. The cost is five bucks a month for 200 pics, add five bucks for another 200 pics etc. No contract, pay as you go. I've hunted some places where we checks our cams and had 900 pics in a few weeks but the place I'm hunting now is 10 miles or so SE of Taylor. We only have one feeder running as of now, goes off at 9:50 PM for pigs only. The food plot is where the action is and we don't have a cam up there yet. I whacked seven or eight lone boars in early spring and pig activity has been sparse since then. But this a hay production pasture so wiping them out was the objective. There's sounders of fifty plus pigs seen nearby frequently so they'll be back soon enough. We also have a poacher problem with the poacher group removing SD cards from every game cam they run across in a two or three square mile area. The Little Acorn we're using employs the 950 IR frequency so they're hard to detect.
Anyhow, lately, there's been a lone boar hittng the feeder around 1:45 AM to 2:15 AM and since that's way past this old renecks bed time he's been pretty safe. But last night he hit the feeder at around 11:15 PM. The beauty of the GMS cam is we can be sitting around camp and get a text letting us know a pig at a feeder and we can run down and whack em. I have the side sensors turned off on this cam for now. We'll be on site next weekend for six days or so cutting hay again so I hope to whack this boar using my new IR Hunter Mark 2 35mm Thermal, DVR equipped. We'll be placing some of the hog roll barrels also, vid posted by TXLawMan on how to build those so maybe more hogs move in as well. I need to adjust some cam settings for the pics as the night pics are a bit grainy. But these GMS cams are awesome as I can be at my desk or anywhere and receive game cam pics without making the drive out to the pasture. Here's the boar from last night, and a fat deer from around 7:30 AM this morning. There's a mineral lick and protien feeder just to the right of the corn feeder but they're not in the view.

Those who give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Pretty cool I wish I would have at least bought one at that price. They are more than double that now.
