Anyone have a problem with the rain cover interfering with their camera flash? I just pulled my card and all of my night pictures were whited out. Daytime pictures were fine.

Good idea. But it'll be a while before I try it. My moultrie was completely under water and I swapped the batteries out and it fired right up

This is what I was worried about.

I was using with a Primos Proof cam 3 Blackout. May have to try with another camera and see if I get different results.

This is a great idea and thanks for posting!

I have an aging Browning Strikeforce that needed a little shade so this post was perfect timing.

I had some 7.5" x 12" Kydex sheets laying around and decided to put one of them to some good use.

I think this design will be a little less likely to wash out pictures yet still provide some good protection.

Items used 1 sheet kydex
Heat gun
clippers
drill and bit.
took about 20 minutes before paint.

My plan is to ziptie the cover to the Trailcamera and then attach camera to a 1/4" camera arm.

Default Game Camera Covers

Great economical version of homemade game camera cover. I make the TrailCamCover, same deal, made homemade ones for years, several gyrations before making this one. It has durable material and design to protect from the elements. If interested, search Google for TrailCamCover, let me know what you think. You put camera strap through and strap to tree, no hardware needed.

thank you for sharing! Had a camera fail recently because it took on moisture in the lense area (luckily, it was replaced no charge). Did lose out on 2 weeks of foggy pictures. Going to try this out. Thank you.

I have 2 of these on my 2 cameras. Mine are on the edge of a hayfield so they get the whole day of sunlight. These work great at keeping most of the days sun off my cameras. Thanks Gunny.
