If you are anything like me, sighting in your rifle includes multiple, time-consuming trips back and forth to the target. This isn’t a problem when you are working with 20, 50 or even a hundred yards; yardages beyond that, I would often times use a quad to run back and forth. No more! I will be using the Bullseye Camera System; unique system that accurately reflects your shot on the actual target emitting a photo of the target to a program on your computer right from the place you executed the shot…in a matter of mere seconds.
Bullseye Camera Systems, LLC offers 2 different models to help you see the shot you take. I field tested the 1000-yard camera system recently which includes a weatherproof camera with night vision, two 5-hour rechargeable battery packs, router, antenna, tripod, connectors, carrying case and the Bullseye Target Manager Software. The Bullseye Target Manager Software is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or 8.
Setting up the system is quick and easy. The camera is set-up on the tripod near and facing the intended target. The kit contains 2 rechargeable battery packs; one to power the camera and the other to power the wireless router. A couple of cords finishes off the physical set-up of the system at the target. The software will need to be loaded onto a laptop from the supplied flash drive containing the entire program. Once the software is executed you can define your target and then go into the shooting mode.
Now the fun begins! Once you shoot, simply press the space bar, and the picture will be transmitted to your lap top. You can easily see right where you hit the target. Mark the shot and then shoot again–that is it! You have the ability to keep track of your efforts and you can even note the shooter, the target range, caliber of weapon and ammo used. This system also works with shotguns and bows. You could even have fun with it with pies in a face if you so desired—just kidding, but it would work.
We recently hosted a retired Veterans’ hunt in Alabama where the attendees were able to shoot an M-1 Garand/50 Caliber Barrett. We shot at 600-yards and I cannot tell you how much effort this system saved. We still doubled-checked some shots by riding a motorized vehicle out to the target.That wasn’t necessary because what the computer showed was accurate in revealing what the target reflected.
It was extremely easy to note the size difference of the various calibers used on the targets by what was revealed on the computer screen. There were well over 500 rounds shot, which this system not only saved us from a lot of time consuming trips back and forth to the target, but we also had the proof and a lot of pictures to show the accuracy of each shooter’s shots.
As I prepared for my South African trip, shooting at 100-yards, the Bullseye Camera System made the most fun I have ever had while “working”. The really nice part is that I had solid corroboration of my shot placement which to me is important to be confident with my shooting ability.
Ladies in Camo recently hosted an Archery Day with Chris Brackett where the Bullseye Camera System was used in an 82-yard shooting contest. We also used it with a foam disc thrower which Chris Brackett brought. The system caught some amazing shots. Before long, everyone was putting faith in what I was seeing on the computer and I was instantly able to show them exactly where they hit the target.
