MOUNTING AND POSITIONING
THE TROPHY CAM
After you’ve set up the camera’s parameters to your personal preferences
at home or in your truck, you’re ready to take it outside and slide the power
switch to “ON”. When setting up the Trophy Cam for scouting game or other
outdoor applications, you must be sure to mount it in place correctly and
securely. We recommend mounting the Trophy Cam on a sturdy tree with
a diameter of about 6 in. (15cm). To get the optimal picture quality, the tree
should be about 16-17 ft. (5 meters) away from the place to be monitored,
with the camera placed at a height of 5-6.5 ft. (1.5~2 m). Also, keep in mind
that you will get the best results at night when the subject is within the ideal
ﬂash range, no farther than 45’ (14m) and no closer than 10’ (3m) from the
There are two ways to mount the Trophy Cam: using the provided adjustable
web belt, or the tripod socket.
Using the adjustable web belt: Fig. 5 illustrates using the web belt on
the Trophy Cam. Push one end of the belt through the two brackets on
the back of the Trophy Cam. Thread one plastic buckle part onto each
end of the belt. Fasten the belt securely around the tree trunk by clicking
the buckle ends together after tightening the belt so there is no slack left.
Using the tripod socket: The camera is equipped with a socket at
bottom end to enable mounting on a tripod or other mounting accessories
with a standard1/4-20 thread.
