As deer hunters, it's hard to imagine a day when trail cameras didn't play a huge role in our year-round process. We nervously pull memory cards, upload photos to our laptops and sit like kids at Christmas waiting to see what trophies stepped in front of our lens.
Even more impressive, perhaps, is how far technology has come since the first trail cameras hit the market. A great example is the Stealth Cam Unit X Ops, an 8 megapixel camera that offers HD video capture with sound. Operating on 8 AA batteries for extended life, the Unit X Ops has a nine-frame burst mode and external LED display. The Unit X Ops retails for $169.99 and makes a great addition to any serious deer hunter's tool box.
Another great offering from Stealth Cam is the Scout 7, a 7 megapixel trail camera with a 30-foot range and extended battery life (8 AA batteries). Like the Unit X Ops, the Scout 7 is equipped with HD video and has a quick trigger speed with nine-shot bursts. Retail price on the Scout 7 is $119.99.

What You Lookin' At?
A good looking buck in velvet stops for a mug shot.
When you see a rack like this, it makes it hard to wait for deer season.
Come a Little Closer
This is the kind of trail camera shot we all hope for. How long is it till the season starts?
On the Lookout
This buck obviously had his attention grabbed by something in the distance — maybe a doe, another buck...or sasquatch.
From the Top Shelf
Two deer sift through the branches in front of this well placed trail camera.
Full Bodied Brute
Oh yeah. That's the kind of full body and nice rack every deer hunter likes to see on his trail camera.
Close Up Shot
This buck steps in for a close up shot and a quick bite from a nearby branch.
Don't Look Up
A nice looking buck traipses in front of this camera just long enough to show off its decent rack.
Well Hello There
A buck stops in for a pose.
People don't usually use trail cameras to capture award-winning landscape photos, but this one certainly takes the cake. Well played.
