Background and History<br />Trail cameras have been around for a long time. What began as a scouting tool for me has evolved into much more. <br />Initially, I owned a first generation Stealth 35mm unit. The unreliability, weak construction and the costly venture of developing rolls of film were less than desirable.<br />I learned of homemade trail cameras in December, 2006 and have since made over 50 units.<br />I now use my cameras for more than just scouting for that trophy buck. I capture high quality images of our wildlife. <br />From this experience has evolved CAMTRAP. A company offering top quality trail cameras and a commitment to keep our customers satisfied as our Mission Statement reflects.<br />

Duluth Boat Show (Feb 21)<br />On February 21 of this year, the team at Camtrap attended the Duluth Boat, Sport and Travel Show and interviewed the potential demographic about their familiarity, ownership, and use of trail cameras.<br />
Demographic<br />According to deerhunting411, there are roughly 1.6 million fishermanin Minnesota, from which nearly 33% also hunt. This is consistent with our data. Of all the fisherman that we interviewed at the boat show, 38% of them also hunted. This is very close to deerhunting411’s numbers with the fisherman’s subdivision of our primary demographic of deer hunters (“State Facts About Hunting” 2007).<br />
