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.

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

I called today, and I can send the camera back for them to look at... however the woman advised that just them looking at it will have a price tag of about 50% of the cost of a new camera. :(

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.

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.
