The glow from the IR on my I-40 disturbed a bear this week. He thought the camera should be placed a bit closer to the ground so he put it there. A little epoxy and it will be back in the game though. I need to buy a new cam. I want color pics again, the I-40 never switches to color where I place my camera's. I think I also want to lose the IR. Atleast with my I-40 , I would say the deer are more focussed on the glow than from the flash of my other cams. Atleast the camera is still working, it could of been worse.
