|20140259851||RETRACTABLE GUN STAND - A gun stand comprising a base for supporting a gun and a ribbon of stiff material including a coiled portion and an uncoiled portion (e.g., having a curved lateral cross-sectional shape). A lock mechanism (e.g., movable between an engaged position and a released position) can be used to inhibit movement of the ribbon relative to the base. Preferably, the lock mechanism further includes a trigger for selectively moving the lock mechanism between the engaged and released positions. The gun stand can comprise two ribbons, each having a coiled portion and an uncoiled portion. At least one of the ribbons can include a releasable securing mechanism (e.g., magnets) for securing the uncoiled portions of the ribbons to each other. A foot brace can be secured to a free end of the ribbon. A releasable attachment mechanism (e.g., a strap) can be provided to secure the gun to the gun stand.||09-18-2014|
|20140253749||HYBRID IR FLASH FOR TRAIL CAMERA - A camera assembly including a camera that has an image-capturing device. The camera assembly also includes an illumination device that is coupled to the camera and that is adapted to illuminate a subject when the camera is capturing an image, and a control unit. The illumination device is capable of illuminating in at least two different peak wavelengths. The control unit automatically configures the camera assembly to use one or more of the at least two different wavelengths.||09-11-2014|
|20140098256||AUTOMATED CAMERA ASSEMBLY WITH INFRARED DETECTOR CURTAIN - An automated camera assembly comprising a camera and a detector for triggering the camera, wherein the detector includes an adjustable field of view. The detector can include a sensor and a curtain for reducing a maximum field of view to an adjusted field of view. The curtain can include an opaque member movable relative to the sensor. The curtain can instead include a processor programmed to trigger the camera when the subject is within the adjusted field of view. The invention is also embodied in a method of adjusting a field of view of a detector. The method comprises detecting a first subject within a maximum field of view, triggering the camera after detecting the first subject within the maximum field of view, adjusting to an adjusted field of view, detecting a second subject within the adjusted field of view, and triggering the camera after detecting the second subject.||04-10-2014|
|20140050366||System for Predicting Game Animal Movement and Managing Game Animal Images - A system for managing scouting images, including a scouting camera configured to record and store images of subjects at a particular location and an image management device which has a processor that creates a predictive statement based on image content of the images stored on the scouting camera or copies thereof and a display conveying the predictive statement to a user, wherein the predictive statement indicates a portion of a future time period that subjects are most likely to be at the particular location as compared to remaining portions of the future time period.||02-20-2014|
|20140044428||Retaining Clip for Camera Mounting Bracket - A camera mounting bracket system for supporting a camera in a position determined by a user comprising a quick connect/disconnect mounting assemblage which includes a fastener-engaging channel and spring retaining clip for securing the mounting assemblage to a camera whereby the camera is able to be quickly connected/disconnected from the mounting assemblage.||02-13-2014|
|20130054475||Method and Apparatus for Validating Time-Limited Warranty - A method and apparatus for validating a time-limited warranty of a product warranted by a warrantor. The product preferably has a controller with a user interface operably connected to the controller. In the inventive method, warranty-pertinent information is permanently recorded with the controller. It is preferred that the warranty-pertinent information include a post-sale activation date and an automatically-counted number of run days since post-sale activation. The warranty-pertinent information is retrieved, and the post-sale period compared with the length of the time-limited warranty. Validity of a warranty claim is determined based on whether the recorded number of run days is consistent with the post-sale period.||02-28-2013|
|20120288267||Mounting Bracket for a Camera - A camera mounting bracket for supporting a camera in a position determined by a user comprising a quick connect/disconnect mounting assemblage that has a fastener-engaging channel for securing the mounting assemblage to a camera whereby the camera is able to be quickly connected/disconnected from the mounting assemblage.||11-15-2012|
|20100331086||System for Predicting Game Animal Movement and Managing Game Animal Images - A system for managing scouting images, including a scouting camera configured to record and store images of subjects at a particular location and an image management device which has a processor that creates a predictive statement based on image content of the images stored on the scouting camera or copies thereof and a display conveying the predictive statement to a user, wherein the predictive statement indicates a portion of a future time period that subjects are most likely to be at the particular location as compared to remaining portions of the future time period.||12-30-2010|
|20100329661||Scouting Camera User Interface - A game scouting camera including a processing system having an operating system and a memory device and a user interface operably connected to the processing system that has (a) a visual display, (b) at least one operation key for inputting user commands, and (c) a multiple-stage manual switch movable to multiple alignment positions to control multiple camera functions during a camera setup procedure.||12-30-2010|
|20100098401||FILTER MOVING SOLENOID SYSTEM FOR A CAMERA - A filter-moving solenoid system for use with a camera is provided. The filter-moving solenoid system includes a solenoid and an armature that has at least first and second operative positions and at least first and second contact segments. A first contact segment is held against or adjacent the solenoid when the armature is in a first operative position and a second contact segment is held against or adjacent the solenoid when the armature is in a second operative position. The filter-moving solenoid system is configured so that the armature is self-stable in each of the first and second positions, allowing the filter to selectively remain fixed in such positions without requiring the solenoid to be energized in so doing.||04-22-2010|
|20090194443||PROTECTIVE CASE FOR A WILDLIFE SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM - A protective case that resists fractures, punctures, deformations, and other failures for use with a wildlife surveillance system is provided. The protective case includes a cooperating base and cover. The base and cover define a cavity therebetween, which houses the wildlife surveillance system. The base and cover interlock with each other, providing multi-dimensional stability of the entire assemblage. In addition, the protective case is made from a material that can endure manipulations, handling, or attacks from various wildlife animals, including, e.g., bears and others.||08-06-2009|
