No flash that the human eye can see. They were in front of my garage. It was fortunately locked.

Sounds like you back in SA....

Is theft a big issue there?

It wasn't, but it is becoming a problem. My friend who lives in town had his minivan stolen, after they loaded it up with all his tools and some electronics in his home, while they were sleeping. No, he had never locked his house before and the keys were in it. But still unheard of around here. The last week I noticed lights coming down my road at night ( i live down a dead end road and i am the last house). So there is no reason for them to come here at night or during the day unless they are invited.They would then turn around and go back. I thought I would put the cameras up and sure as shit they were trying something.

Excellent thread!  :thumleft:

Even looks like some of the animals are posing for the camera.

What is the law there about shooting at trespassers?

Here in Florida you can shoot at anyone in your yard...

If my life or that of my family is in immediate danger, I may try to protect them. But here is the catch. To legally store my guns they have to be locked up in a safe or with a trigger lock and the ammuntion stored separately. So if I had time to retrieve my firearm, unlock it, go find my ammo and load it, I technically had time to get away from the threat by running out the back door for instance. So in my situation with the stranger snooping around my yard, I have to lock my house and call 911. Or politely, unarmed, ask them to leave.

Hmmm...

Thanks. I forget the term they use here. Something about no-retreat... you are threatened, you protect yourself. Your home is your castle.

Oh well. At least if you call the cops they WILL respond. not like most places back in SA.

Guys, I am looking for some advice. I wanted to do this a long time ago, but think it is time now.

I dont know much about these trapping/trophy cameras, but I have very specific requirements

Mostly night time shooting, at a water hole or feeding spot. I assume that the flash will be very important as a normal flash will chase away whatever there is?
Is it possible to get a colour pic with IR?
The camera can be reached on a daily basis, so battery life is not that important, but will be convenient


I will really appreciate any feedback or even a recommended camera
