I got to use one this season (a buddy lent it to me). It was extremely helpful and I would recommend it for anyone who can afford it. Pros: you don't have to go into your spot to check your cam and you can see how much of your bait is still there. Cons: They do use a lot of batteries and the cell bill is an ongoing expense.

I sent you PM back, contact me anytime.

Cricker has an older one. I have the Covert Blackhawk which runs on Verizon but the plan is direct thru Covert.
Can set to go to either text or email, I use email on a dedicated email.

Here's the plan

The second is a spot I'm excited to hunt next year, going to do a pile 130 yards away and place the camera at a tree I'm high on I won't have to go to tree till I see when he's there.
This is the guy I hope it helps with

How the hell does that plan work tom? I mean a cam can take 1000 pics in less then a week. So i guess it just stops sending pics after on week. Then ya gotta wait 3 weeks to get more pics. Or up the plan. And can ya only sign up for 4 months a year ect?

Not realy. I always spot cameras and just walk behind them. Except i dont touch them cuz they aint mine. Someone could easily take it without getting pic. Thats why i dont have one.

Since they are over cellular satellite and hooked up to your email account two things. 1) if someone steals it and sets it back up odds are you will have him/her show up on your email 2) I believe since its on a cellular plan just like a cell phone you can track the camera's location when powered on. I could be wrong but I believe I have heard on the newer cameras you can. Now if someone steals it and never turns it back on...well just like now you are poop out of luck.
