Really liking this Bushnell Essential E3

I got 2 of them a while back. I also got an Aggressor. The Aggressor was more money but the Essential is better for what I want. Even though the Aggressor shoots 1080 and the Essential shoots 720. I like being able to set the video length. The Aggressor doesn't allow that. Anyway, here are some clips from the latest card pull. Really beautiful in the fall woods. Had a couple surprise visitors show up.

The Essential shoots 720. That's what you see in the video. It has programmable video length. I usually set at 20 sec. I'm not sure how long you can program but 20 sec is plenty. When I put together the videos I edit out the stuff that isn't interesting. Examples, when a deer walks out of frame, stands and stares, boring stuff. While you might only see a 10 sec clip, the actual video may have been 20 sec. You can program how long before it resets. I usually do 6 or 7 seconds.
I switch out cards every 1 or 2 weeks. I use 8 and 16 GB cards. I've only ever filled one card completely and that was 8GB and out for almost 3 weeks. It had a ton of video clips of a squirrel. I'm talking a ton. That squirrel was there on and off all day and everyday.

Been hunting there for over 30 years. Never saw bear or bear sign. The property owner said he only ever saw bear one time several years ago. I was surprised to see that. I'm not sure if I'm happy or upset. The cubs are plenty cute in the video and it's cool to see but now I'm not too thrilled about walking in or out of the woods , knowing there is a mother with cubs there.
