Bushnell Trail Camera Review

What are the best Bushnell trail cameras?

The best game cameras allow for the capture of spectacular wildlife shots. Also known as hunting cameras or home security cameras, trail cameras are designed specifically for remote use by hunters or wildlife photographers.

The best Bushnell trail cameras are the Bushnell Core DS No Glow, the Bushnell Prime Low Glow and the Bushnell Trophy.

Who uses trail cameras?

While trail cameras are mostly used by hunters and naturalists to capture images of wildlife and other animals, they are also commonly used for outdoor security and surveillance. The typical trail camera shoots both still images and video, and is durable and weatherproof.

Additionally, game cameras are typically colored in plain earth hues or camouflaged, which allows them to remain unnoticed by potential subjects or blend into natural backgrounds.
