    Someone on the Hunting beast posted an eBay link for 2016 Covert BlackHawks with Verizon service for $209 shipped. That is a KILLER deal. I called covert and confirmed it will work along side an AT&T camera on the same subscription and app so I ordered one. Here is the link

    Nice find!

    I was going to post a deal this morning too! On the scentlok website it is 20% off gift cards for fathers day. If you load up on a gift card you can save some good cash and then you can use it to do some serious damage if you shop their sales. It says if you spend $250 you get a free headcover also.

    The first time I went to it, it said 209. Now it was bumped up to 250.

    how does this affect your data on your phone plans??? Or does it just use the unlimited text?
    All of the reviews say battery life stinks. I do not want to walk to my hunting site every 2 weeks to change batteries, kinda useless to have pics sent to phone if you still need to stink up the woods to change batteries. I use the exodus camera now and the batteries have lasted 2 seasons!!! but I have to go and pull the card to see whats on there....

    These cams aren't tied in with your phone data at all. it is all done through Coverts web portal and it's extremely easy. battery life isn't that bad, certainly not like a regular cam but it also depends on how it's set up. I was reading that setting it up to send pics every three hours greatly increases battery life instead of doing real time like I have been doing.If it's constantly pinging the server it eats the battery. Making it three hours should help. I can get 3-4 weeks of battery on mine in the summer over bait with regular batteries. I just ordered lithiums for both of mine so hopefully that takes battery life up a good bit.

    You could also put a solar kit on it.
