As many new players have entered the ring for smart technology trail cameras, Wildgame Innovations are coming in swinging with the launch of the Encounter cellular trail camera and updated HuntSmart app. The newest release is designed to work on ALL cellular networks regardless of the service provider, allowing for connectivity anywhere cellular signal is available.

The new Encounter trail camera is designed to work on all cellular networks regardless of the service provider in the US or Canada, which means connectivity anywhere you have a signal. The unit incorporates red, yellow, and green cell signal strength indicator lights so you know immediately if the camera is set up in an optimal transmit/receive location. Best of all, the Encounter can send images straight to a mobile device via the HuntSmart app and even access accounts directly from any computer via the HuntSmart website.

The Encounter provides 20-megapixel image captures with a .5-second trigger speed and illumination extend to 80 feet. For optimal concealment, the Encounter is built around a brown, bark-textured case that blends well in any field environment.

To fully maximize game recording and remote scouting strategies, the Wildgame Innovations HuntSmart app has been updated to provide Encounter camera owners a broad range of controls and system monitoring. Following easy QR code setup, the HuntSmart app allows users to monitor signal strength, adjust image transmission settings, battery life, SD card capacity, and data plan performance from any location via a mobile device or computer.

HuntSmart is much more than a camera monitoring and management app that works with any Wildgame Innovation wireless cameras and when used with WGI’s SD card readers for Apple or Android devices, HuntStand allows you to import and process photos from any brand trail camera. This app delivers a deep bench of data organizing and hunt planning features such as:

  • Camera locater via satellite map
  • Image & Data sharing capability with friends and associates
  • Weather/time/moon phase logging for improved hunt forecasting
  • Image recognition to target specific game species
  • Advanced photo sorting by date/time, weather, location, species, moon phase, and more

These features and more are available based on a selected low monthly subscription plan. To learn more about the new Encounter cellular trail camera or the upgraded HuntSmart 2.0 app, visit
