Bird hunting: duck, goose, grouse, etc.

Follow these instructions to bird hunt with ShotKam Gen 4— ducks, goose, grouse, dove, upland, crane, waterfowl, pheasant, partridge, quail, and more. Step-by-step guide for settings, waking from sleep mode, and video tips.

How to Bird Hunt with Gen 4

Always ensure the rear screw on cap is firmly twisted on the ShotKam to protect the charging port. The ShotKam is made of aircraft aluminum, so it is highly durable and will withstand all hunting situations. 

NOTE: This tutorial was filmed for our ShotKam Gen 3, but the Gen 4 operates the same way while hunting. 

1.  Select Your Settings

Connect to the ShotKam’s WiFi, open the ShotKam app, then select Shooting Settings. Choose the correct shooting device, then select the “Flying Birds” target type.

Ensure the wake-up sensitivity setting is set to Normal, and that the video format is set to 2.7k at 120 fps. Save any changes. 

2. Once in the Field

Turn your ShotKam on into Normal Shooting Mode with one quick click of the control button; you will see one green LED light. When solid green, the camera is now recording video and will go into Sleep Mode to save battery power after 30 seconds of inactivity. When your camera is in Sleep Mode (indicated by 1 blinking green LED), press the control button once to awaken it or bump the gun with your hand. Bump either the stock or forend; this vibration will waken the ShotKam.

NOTE: If the ShotKam is in constant Sleep Mode for 2 hours, then it will turn off automatically. You must waken the camera (1 solid green LED) once per hour. Either bump the gun, take a shot, or press control button.

3. Take the Shot

Shoot within 30 seconds of wakening the camera, or bump the gun to reset the 30-second timer. You will see a blinking blue LED after the shot is taken to indicate that your shot has been saved. The ShotKam will save 3 seconds pre-shot and 3 seconds post-shot. Any shots taken within 9 seconds of each other will be saved on the same continuous video. Playback speed is 1/3 speed, therefore videos will be 18-30 seconds long.

    You can be your mentor when Shotkam is attached with your shotgun barrel
    It tells you if you have issue with lead or whether your stock is not perfectly fit for you.
