I think firemanjim is still selling boards but I dont think he has a store anymore. http://www.snapshotsniper.com http://rcdavisgamecamerasolutions.weebly.com/ Glad to see ya back.....😉

    Troubleshoot LCD board

    Ok, good, so we know the PIRs are new. Lets go to the next step. Have you tested the camera hack wires manually by touching them to see if it powers on and shutters with the hack wires? If yes, lets go to next step. Gary asked if it works in walktest, if it does, will the cam power on at all after walktest is over? If it powers up but wont shutter, maybe it could be a timing issue with the cam not working in the build but works out side of the build. Is the timing set correctly in the menu? If I remember right, it will act as though the pir isnt working if the timing isnt set right in the menu so the cam wont fire. Not sure what the s600 speed is but maybe adjust that setting to a slower timing and see if it fires with motion.

    Troubleshoot LCD board

    That may be something Gary can chime in on. I actually have a couple old ones that do the same but haven't ever tried to fix them yet. One will stay in walk test unless I turn it off in the settings but wont detect if walk test is off, the other wont detect motion after going in to stand by. Its possible the PIR's may be going bad, I might try to reflow the solder on the PIR's just to see if that may be the problem. I know on some older stuff that works some of the time.
  6. The old dead end road I camp on next to an old large pond. the road is just to the right from how the vid is facing. These little stinkers come around and walk across the road in front of my camp while I'm gone during the day..

    Spooky - interesting friday night

    Went up Thursday to spend the last 4 days of bow season. After getting to my spot, set up camp and chilled till around 3 and headed out to sit on my stump near where I camp. I noticed when leavin my camp, deer had been crossing the road about 60 yds up the dead end I camp on so when I left my stump I grabbed the cam I had there and brought it back with me, thinkin Id just hang it in the woods just off the road where those deer tracks were crossing by my camp. Its friday now and headed out for morning hunt, I just walk to a few different stumps now to hunt since mobility isnt as good as it use to be. Long day and saw no deer, only a bobcat that walked within 15 ft of me cruisin the trail. So, its 7:10 and its getting dark so I headed back to camp. I made a quick dinner, ate and was just kickin back reading in my netting canopy. I was gettin sleepy so thought, hec with it, gonna lock up for the night, get in my tent and fall asleep readin. Its dark and almost 8:30 So, I walk around to the door of my truck to lock it and just flashed my flash light up the road, like I always do. Well, my light caught eyes flashing back at me. I thought, cool a deer. Noooope, a big bear, sitting in the road, 30 yards from the front of my truck. Wow, really cool. Except normally when a bear sees a person around here they run like the wind in the opposite direction. This one DID NOT. I had my flashlight right on him, flipped my head lights on, honked the horn and told it to get outta here. It stayed, swung its head back n forth a few times then turned and walked back out the road and into the dark. Normally, I am not bothered but he acted really strange. I went back to my canopy and put a couple things away and heard a noise. I flipped my light on and up the road and there he was again, sittin right back in the same spot. This happened 7 times from around 8:30 pm to 2:47 am. It made for a very long night. Now so you know, Im camped at the edge of a large pond, camped on an old road next to it which is the end of the road before it turns in to a natural darn. Well, I decided at 3:00 am since he hadn't been back for a bit, Im just gonna get in my tent, I'm beat tired and fairly stressed from the ordeal. To make a long story short, the back of my tent is approx 10 feet from pond edge, down a steep 8ft embankment. I dozed off only to be awoken by the sound of what seemed like a volkswagon bug bein dropped in the pond right next to me. It scared me up and awake and I grabbed for my flashlight in the dark tent, fumbling for a moment to get my bearings and see what the hec was goin on. As Im sittin up in my sleepin bag, Im hearing this splashing, swimming noise and whoofing sound. This freak bear came back, dove in to the pond and swam across it, splitting the lily padys and leaving a path in the pond, an easy 75 yd swim, whoofin and splashin all the way across. This has to be the weirdest thing I have had happen to me and now this freak bear is behind my camp with ez trail access right to my tent. I could hear him loudly crashin thru brush and breakin branches in the woods directly behind my tent. Very nerve racking to say the least. Now mind you, its still dark and though I couldn't get out of my tent, dressed fast enough to see this, it was clear after waiting till day light to see where he walked right up to my truck, then turned and walked to the pond edge and just dove in. You could see on the opposite side where he had climbed out and over some old logs and left a trail of wet. After it was light out and all calm now, I decided to go ahead and hunt for the morning at my stump. Well, I came back to camp around noonish and when I was walkin into my camp could see clearly, that bear had walked all over my little dead end road, back n forth so many times, it looked like his foot prints were part of the road. I just realized I had that cam off in the woods about 20 yds from where he was standin and goin back n forth so I thought, what are the odds, maybe he walked by that cam. So, I pulled the card, walked into camp and sure enough, he walked right in front of it so I got a short vid of him. He was a good size bear from my view on my phone. I got home late sunday night and really wanted to look at the big boar on my pc's bigger screen so after tellin wifey about the ordeal, went and downloaded it and watched it. Ive watched it numerous times now and to my shock, noticed this was NOT a boar, but a big sow. You can see in the first few seconds of the vid, she is milking or still feedin cubs by her swollen, hangin teets. But, why no cubs with her? Where were they? Why would she still be feedin cubs this late in the year? Well, this video helped me to understand the bears odd behavior from all night friday night better. Whatcha think, was she on a mission to get by my camp to get to her cubs? They should be around 7 to 8 mo old at this time of year so why were they not with her? I've seen hundreds of bears in these mountains, many with cubs. Momma is never more than 30 to 50 yds from them ever from my experience and Ive never seen one still milkin this late in the year or without them close by. At one point friday night this bear circled thru the woods and came around to the driver side of my truck (10:55pm and yep, I was sittin in the driver seat because of this bear...😊) hence how I caught her on the video because she cut thru the woods in front of my truck and circled around to my left. Any of you guys experience anything like this or explain the milking cubs this late and not have them with her? Here is the short vid.

    A few pics - w/comm cams

    Thanks brother, it feels good to be out there that's for sure..;) Yep, I bought 50 (actually 53) for 125.00... I knew a guy who knew a guy from ebay and ended up workin a deal for them. he said most didn't work but I figured I could use the IR filter lenses, the led arrays etc etc but after i got them home and started testing them, All but 5 worked fine, I was able to fix 2 of those 5 and 3 were completely dead. so ended up with 50 working cams out of 53...lol.. I have a whole wallmart silver plastic bin filled. they are all those cheap model "wildgame innovations" trail cams, some older models (2012) to the newest ones being from 2017. Figure what the hec, if one goes bad, trash it and just pull another out. It worked out to like $2.50 a cam so just couldn't pass on the deal, quite a variety too, some black flash, some regular and some that are still pic only and a mix from 6mp to 12mp... Not the greatest video or pics but they work for their purpose. I just added a couple vids to youtube , here are the links to them. Blackbear Blacktail Buck

    Went to the mountains

    Yep, saw them physically in daylight hours. They are getting to be very brazen and a lot of them in our area. Last year I got 2 on cam at night. Spoke to quite a few hunters during rifle season (october/november) and just about all of them had seen at least one. Its actually a little worrying especially since I usually go in an hour before daylight but I just cant think to hard about it or I'd never make it to my stands... lol

    A few pics - w/comm cams

    Thanks John. And it feels so good to be out there too,.. Its amazing how much you can miss something and not really realise how much till you get back out there.. Thanks Woody, I like it when I get a good mix as well. Yeah, those WGI cams aren't the best but I just couldn't pass them up. There are a few that take nice pics and vids but some aren't so good. Best part is they are small so I can pack more in at once. They are pretty good on batts though too.. I had time to get one of my p41 units and a w55 slave unit fixed so they will be goin up with me this week. That will put 10 rigs in the woods...lol

Some good big country. Im headed back up this coming wednesday, had a pretty nice buck show up a few times at one of my spots so hope to be there waitin for him...😁
  15. These cams pretty much stink but I couldn't pass up the deal so picked up 50 of them for 125 bucks....lol A few pics with these cheap commercial cams till I get my diy stuff all back in good working order. I just added them to an old site domain I hav, easier then trying to edit each to size to add. http://www.treasuresweeper.com/trailcam-pictures/
