I got a remote wildlife camera several years ago for a gift and it turned into a 24/7 hobby.
The camera has allowed me to track wildlife migrations, know weather changes like when snowstorms hit during the night, and even which neighborhood dogs came by the yard.
My Moultrie game camera has served me well for the number of years during its 24/7 use. I'll admit, buying the six D batteries for it has been an expense. I've gone to rechargeable batteries but they don't hold the charge as long as regular batteries. I can get a couple of weeks out of new batteries.
You can get remote wildlife cameras from $80 to $500. Usually a mid-priced one at about $149 will serve you well.
It might be the gift you are looking for if the person you are shopping for is a avid hunter or wildlife and bird watcher. Yup, some people set them up near their bird feeders so they don't miss anything while they are at work during the day.
This buck came by the camera a few nights ago.
