In this article, you'll learn how to use your ShotKam when hunting larger game such as elk, turkey, moose, bear, antelope, caribou, bison, etc. Watch this 2-minute video on how to use ShotKam in a situation where you don't want to have to bump the gun to waken:
1. Select Your Settings
Connect to the ShotKam’s Wi-Fi, open the ShotKam app, then tap the Settings icon. Select the “Ground Game” target type, then select your gun type: shotgun semi-auto, rifle bolt-action, rifle semi-auto, bow, crossbow, etc. Finally, go into Wake-Up Sensitivity, then select "Sleep Disabled." Save these changes.
2. Once in the Field
When you expect to take a shot within the next 45 minutes, turn your ShotKam in Normal Shooting Mode with one click-and-release of the Control Button; one green LED will illuminate. On a full charge, the camera will now stay ON for 45 minutes and save any shots (blue LED after the recoil) taken during that time. You will not need to bump the gun before shooting like you do when bird hunting.
3. Take the Shot
Shoot within 45 minutes of turning the camera ON, or turn the ShotKam OFF to conserve battery life if needed. You will see a blinking blue LED after the shot is taken to indicate that your shot has been saved. The ShotKam will save 6 seconds pre-shot (before the recoil) and 20 seconds post-shot (after the recoil) which is the maximum video length. This Ground Game setting automatically selects the longest video length available. Videos will be about 1 minute and 20 seconds long in 1/3 playback speed. Multiple shots taken within 10 seconds of each other will be saved as one long video.
Note: Keep the back cap firmly twisted on the camera to stop water from entering the USB port. The ShotKam is made of military-grade aluminum, so it is extremely durable and will endure all hunting environments.
