The Bullseye Target Cam: SHOT Show 2018

Video transcript below.

This is Todd Woodard, editor of Gun Tests magazine, at SHOT Show 2018.

This is one of the cooler accessories we've seen at this particular show.

This is called the Bullseye Target Cam, and basically it's a camera that you put downrange and it looks at your target, and then it transmits a signal back to your laptop, so you've got a downrange spotting scope and you don't have to worry about mirage or anything else.

It charges with an internal lithium-ion battery, and it's real portable. Probably only weighs about 3 pounds.

So, this is a pretty cool thing if you do a lot of long-distance shooting. It's probably an accessory that's worth your while.

I have the Target Cam and have used it several times out to 200 yards. Be sure and look at all the videos from Bullseye on how to set it up and use it.

This works great and makes the spotting scope obsolete. Due to the ability to mark you hits with different colors, you can shoot multiple groups on the same target and know which bullets go in which group. It saves a long walk out to 300 yards to check, change, or paste your target.

I'm going to try the camera out, when I pattern my shotgun for turkey hunting. Since it shows the last shot, I'm hoping to be able to fire several shells at the patterning target and see the pattern for each shot.

The only problem I have encountered, other than not having looked at all of the videos before using the camera, is not having a clean line of sight from the camera to the shooting stand. My range has berms at 25, 50, 100, and 200 yards, so a camera placed on the ground at 200 yards may be obscured by the berm at 100 yards. Be sure your tablet or phone can "see" the camera. Oh, and don't forget to take your phone or tablet downrange with you to set up the camera to view the target. Ask me how I know.
