OVERLAND PARK, Kansas –  Bushnell, an industry leader in high-performance outdoor products for more than 65 years, announced it has won two 2016 Brilliance Awards from online retailer OpticsPlanet—Best Trail Camera and Best Radar Gun. Decided by popular vote, the Brilliance Awards annually recognize the best of the best in performance optics and sporting equipment.

OpticsPlanet named the finalists vying for the right to bear the coveted Brilliance Award seal, while it was consumers who then cast their votes, choosing the Bushnell Trophy Cam Essential HD as the top trail camera and the Bushnell Speedster III as the best radar gun on the market.

“To be recognized as the leader in trail cameras by OpticsPlanet and its consumers is an incredible honor for our team,” said Bushnell Public Relations Manager Jacob Edson. “We work hard to produce the highest quality and most dependable products on the market.”

The Bushnell Trophy Cam Essential HD provides more top-tier, exclusive features than any other trail camera in its class.

Stunning 12MP images and 720p HD video reveal exactly what is happening on your property for up to one year on eight AA batteries.
