DIY Trail Camera Hoods-CHEAP & EASY!!!



Visit Our Amazon Store:

Trail cameras are expensive and worth protecting maximize their life. Trail cams are exposed to the sun, rain, dew, and extreme temperatures on a daily basis. A simple trail camera hood can protect your camera for all the elements that can shorten it’s life prematurely.

A simple way to protect your game cams is to cut a 5-gal bucket, or any size paint pale, in half and mount it above your game camera. Since it’s made out of plastic it will last for many years to come.

Cellular game cameras make it a little more challenging to utilize trail camera hoods due to the raised antenna. This is overcome by using a larger hood (5-gallon bucket) and mounting it higher to clear the cellular game cam antenna.

This project is very easy, inexpensive, and quick to complete. All you need is a bucket of any size, some paint, a drill and a saw.

You spend a lot of money on all those trail cameras so make sure you protect them with a trail camera hood!
Thanks for watching!

  2. During COVID-19 Panic: Now's a good time to begin servicing your hunting gear, like trail cameras, tree stands and permanent blinds. Fresh Minerals put out for Deer is ideal right now as they are seeking such. Getting a jump on developing Food Plots are ideal, too, depending on you region and weather.

  3. OBSERVATION: If the US Legislation & CDC handles the COVID-19 threat like States DNR are with CWD for Whitetail Deer, we're all in real trouble! (Fortunately, both CWD & Covid-19 are not what big Pharma wants us to believe) While not the same threat obviously, it surely has some similarities. * We'll all return to work after COVID-19 hysteria, whereas Baiting & Feeding Bans will continue devastating Deer Hunting and less will have incentive to hunt until there is a better compromise. **VACCINES are NOT the SOLUTION!!!

  4. IF you use a LUCKY BUCK minerals bucket and do the same thing with it as Steve has done with a 5 gallon bucket, they are ideal for mounting the same way for smaller or non-cellular trail cams, like the Brownings shown in his earlier videos, IF using a post like he is here. They are much more sturdier than the paint buckets I've learned. All my cameras are mounted on posts regardless of size or if cellular or not. I've also use Truck Bed liner Spray Coating to initiate the first coat, then cammo paint over it. Holds up quite well. I use the Rustoleum Bed Liner.

  5. The HD Picture Detail like in Browning Trail Cameras are not quite there in
    BigFoot Cellular Trail Cameras, but it's not bad and they have a wider
    angle view than typical trail cameras!! RIGHT NOW, these BigFoot
    Cameras (3G) are available on Ebay or Amazon for $75 ea. They are
    Manufacturer Refurbished units with the same support as NEW versions.
    GREAT DEAL!!! I've gotten a few and they work just fine!!

  7. ** A great idea is the use of Used DIRECT TV or DISH antenna Dishes: You remove all hardware off the dish, then flip them so you mount them on top of the post like and umbrella with a single lag bolt. Just remove everything from the disk and paint like your "Bucket" Hoods prior to installation. This depending on the dish size, this idea accommodates shelter for 2-3 cameras on a single post if your setting up for multi-directional monitoring from a single location. Depending on your application, you may have to install the Solar Panel above or on top of the flipped Dish.

  8. Love watching your videos. I go on a hog hunt every year in Rhine. I noticed u said ur land is in Dooley county. Doesn't look 2 far away. Keep up the good work. God bless

  9. Great idea. Building 2 tomorrow.

  10. I like this concept a lot. I was always was wondering why after a rain storm my trail cameras wouldn't work properly. Only thing, I like my trail cameras to be stealth, and this idea would make them stand out more, but I might definitely still try to do it on a few.

  11. great video as always Steve!! I been trying to burn 30 acres this month, but it has been very wet!! Have you been doing any burning??

  12. Brilliant adaption of your original idea for BigFoot Cams now. Already made two for mine. Unlike the one you demo on your video, I raised mine just enough to clear for the stick antenna the BigFoot Cameras come with. Obviously this is not an issue if you use an external antenna like you show.

  13. Genius idea! Great job brother.

  14. Very nice! Looking forward to your next hog trap video.

  15. Great idea and very simple. A good source for buckets is Firehouse subs if you have one nearby. They sell pickle buckets with lids for $2 and the money goes to their charities. You will have to air these out to get rid of the pickle smell. We use the lids for target practice. Keep up the good work.

  16. Awesome Dude!!!!! Do you need to wipe the plastic down with anything before you prime it? Keep these great videos coming!!!!!

  17. Those turned out great. I have hastily cut old plastic plant potters in half before but was just out of necessity for heavy snow situations. But they looked like crap. I like what you did here. This may become standard procedure. 👍

  18. How yaw been doing man you told me to stay in touch like your idea tell preston, preston said hi lol

  19. Great idea as always. They turned out great.

  20. THATS AWESOME! GREAT JOB AND IDEA!! I've seen a couple of your videos and learned new things on plots etc. Now I'm a subscriber!
