Trail cams?

Does anyone know if you can disable the flash on non-IR Trail Cam? A local sporting retailler here is practically giving them away (Bushnell Trail Sentry and the Moultrie M40) as everyone wants IR flash now. I though they might be useful for daylight patterns, but I don't want the flash spooking them at night. If I could shut the flash off, I could get three or four for the price of a quality IR flash camera.

I guess if all else fails I could just smash the flash bulb.... Think Big smile

Electric tape

I have never tried it but a buddy of mine puts electrical tape over the flash, it still takes pictures at night they are just black.
