If you own a game camera, then there is a good chance that you probably own more than one. Once a hunter has a chance to use a game camera, the benefits become quickly obvious. A scouting camera will arm an outdoors man with the knowledge that may just give him that shot of a lifetime. By utilizing multiple game cameras, you can scout out multiple areas and ensure that you are in the right spot for success. In addition, scouting cameras can be a great hobby, allowing a hunter to spend more time in the woods during the off-season.

So I recently added a new, inexpensive game camera to my arsenal of trail cams.  After reading a Wildgame Innovations X6C review, I picked up and put it to the test.

This small game camera is not as easily spotted in the woods thanks to the RealTree camo pattern.

So what is this scouting camera capable of?

The WGI X6C is a 6.0 megapixel infrared digital game camera. It is just another player in the line of small profile game cameras that has hit the market in recent years. It has a series of 18 infrared emitters that has a reach of up to 40 feet. The passive infrared sensor can also reach out to that same 40 feet distance.

You can get pictures and videos with this game camera. The pictures can be captured in a High, Medium, or Low resolution. The videos are 640 x 480, and are 30 seconds in length. So you can get pictures and video during the day. But you can also get pictures and videos at night thanks to the infrared emitters. The pictures have an info strip at the bottom of them that contains details about when the picture was taken. It displays the temperature, the time, the date, the picture number, and a custom location or name that you can add to the camera's configuration.  With information like this, a deer hunter can find himself in the right place at the right time.

Some X6C Tips

Here are a few helpful tips for operating your Wildgame Innovations X6C camera.  These will help you get the most out of your game cam.

  • Check your batteries often.  Make sure that you have no corrosion from the batteries on the camera's contacts.  Don't mix batteries, especially alkaline and rechargeables.
  • Ensure that your X6C is closed tightly before you leave.  The latch should snap into position.  You don't want any moisture getting into your cam.  Make sure that the protective seal between the camera and the door isn't creased or damaged when you pull your memory cards.
  • Make sure you have a good mount and that it isn't loose.
  • Make sure that your lens, the passive infrared sensor, and the housing is clean of dust and debris.
  • Try not to position the camera so that it is facing the rising or setting sun.  This will wash out your pictures and videos and reduce your quality.
  • Try to position your camera so that your targets will be 15 to 20 feet away.  This will give you the best image quality.
