#136578 I just returned from the mountains, and I had a bear bat around my BTC and broke the lens cover the clear piece in front of the IR filter and the camera lens itself. Anyone know what I can do to fix this?? Can I buy a small round piece of Plexiglas or something?? Camera still seems to work, but with the lens cover broke all kinds of moisture can get inside the camera.

#136579 contact Bushnell customer support by phone and explain to them. Tell them you just want to by the lens cover and put it on yourself.

I would think they would have a heck of pile of junk cameras in back that they could snag a good lens cover off of. :D LOL

So they will not sell you a lens cover. They expect you to pay a 100 bucks for a 10.00 cover. Some how I'm not surprised.

#136784 I have had 2 of my BTC munched by bears, but haven't broken the lens cover, yet.

I had the clear plastic over the LED's broken on both of them, and I used clear plastic to fabricate a new piece and used silicon sealant to glue it down. Worked fine.

I would suggest the same thing for the camera lens and I'm sure you could make it work. Either open up the camera and glue it inside, or come up with a way to glue it on the outside, either way should work fine.
