M.A.D. Wildlife Eye Video Monitoring System

Hereís something thatís going to take your scouting to the next level. Itís the new M.A.D. Wildlife Eye and itíll give you an advantage deer cams donít have. The M.A.D. Wildlife Eye is designed for you to insert your camcorder in it through a simple connection and the unit is ready for action. This complete scouting system gives you both a motion activated option or a timer option allowing you to film a food plot or trail at times you suspect itís being used. The best part is the tape it provides shows you all of the action just like you were there and doesnít only give you a shot or two like a trail camera.
The M.A.D. Wildlife Eyeís powerful built in infrared light illuminates up to 40 feet and is invisible to animals. The unit comes with a 12-volt rechargeable battery which powers the unit for more than two weeks according to the manufacturer. One of the biggest problems with many trail cameras is the life of the battery. With the rechargeable battery on the MAD Wildlife Eye this shouldnít be a problem.
Sound complicated, not really just connect the monitoring system to your camcorder, turn on the power and itís ready to go. The system is compatible with over 125 models of new and older Sony and Canon camcorders with LANC connections and requires no modifications to the camcorder which Iím sure your better half will just love to hear. Okay you better not tell her at all. The lockable mounting system ensures the unit will be secure, and its weatherproof case protects it from inclement weather.
If this hunting camera works as the manufacturer says I suspect it wonít be long until these are scattered through the woods everywhere. Imagine being able to set the M.A.D. Video Eye up at the hunting stand you think youíre going to use the first day and then stop back two weeks later to pick up the tape and see if the spot is as good as you suspect.
Itís important to keep in mind the unit doesnít come with a camcorder. You will need to supply the camcorder, however with many of the first generation camcorders growing long in the tooth this may not be a bad thing. Perhaps retire your old camcorder to the field and pick the family up a new camcorder for Christmas.
I see Best Buy has a camcorder from Sony for $249.99 which looks like its compatible with the M.A.D. Wildlife Eye. Keep in mind Iím sure most degenerates would like to find your favorite camcorder hanging from a tree in the middle of the woods with no one around. With that said hopefully you can place the M.A.D. Wildlife Eye in a place it wonít be easily spotted.
Bass Pro had the M.A.D. Wildlife Eye priced at $299.00 right now.
