Want a great trail-cam???

14 posts in this topic

If anyone wants a an awsome camera at a great price you better jump on this! Cabela's Moultrie Outfitter 4.1 is now on sale for $99 until they are gone! These are last years models that take the 6 VOLT RECHARGEABLE battery!!! Dont confuse them with the advertised new ones that went back to D baterries!

I have stealth cams,bushnells, moultries and cuddebacks.... for the money this is hands down the best "flash" camera out there! I have 5 of them. Their easy to use, cheap, high quality photos, and one battery lasts years!! Anyones wants proof of the quality of the pics, I have plenty!

If your looking for a good camera, my advice is get a 6 VOLT model before they are gone! There was about 25 left at Rogers on Labor Day.

Thanks for the good news as I just bought one last week, and 'am in the process of learning how to use it. I've got to buy the solar panel for it though.

I have two of the same camera's and if you bought the 6 volt batteries for them I wouldn't waste my money on the solar charger. Last year I had them out for probably 3 months before I pulled the battery to recharge it. During that time they probably took well over 3000 pictures. I would spend the money on an extra battery then when you go out and the battery is low you can just swap it out. Also if you have 2 SD cards you can do the swap out thing with them as well.

It's not on the internet as a sale item, it's the Cabela's 4.1 that is listed on the Cabela's site for 149.99.

If I was by Rogers I'd buy one, I really like the 6 volt battery cameras. I also looked online yesterday after your post and saw only that $149 camera that uses the 6 volt. I have an older Moultrie and its a good camera, easy to use, good flash, but slow, it has to be over a salt block. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

Yes these are at the store for $99 along with all the others. Im sure theres a few left, the "experts" selling there didnt seem to be pushing them. They had a bunch of other suggestions for more expensive cameras! smirk.gif

I bought one of these the day before the original post. Also got the rechargable 6v and the solar cell for recharging. Been in the woods for two weeks now, checked it Saturday, unit still indicates a full charge. Solar/rechargable system seems to be working nicely. Pics look great too. (This is the low res setting.)

I was back at Cabela's last Thursday (needed something else, darn), and I wandered by the cameras wondering the same thing. They had a few left on the floor. Better hurry, they might still have the odd unit. Maybe call first and have them put one behind the counter, they have done that for me in the past...?

That was a quick reply.... Heck sounds like a decent buy even at the $150 price....

For $99 or $149 it seems to be a good camera. But don't forget the cost of the rechargable and the solar cell......I think $19 and $25 respectively, if I recall.......

The batteries are $9 and last for up to 3-5 years. No camera will beat that! I personally dont use the solar panels, when warm the battereies last forever.... when its cool, they all die fast- solar or not.

Anyway, I checked with Cabelas at Rogers this weekend and there gone... just one in the bargain cave? Now its just the ones with the D batteries. Im sure they are fine but now your back to putting in $9 every time. crazy.gif

Those of you who got them will like them!

      'Pout   The 'Pout bite has been great   Adrian's has made yet another road to the east of the 2 previous, now abandoned, roads.  The new road is a bit rough for my liking but take it slower and no problems.  The good part about it is that the little snow that is out there (maybe an inch or two) is rock hard and you can now drive anywhere you want.  I saw 1 ton diesel trucks pulling wheel houses across the white and I doubt anyone was even in 4 wheel drive, its just not needed.  We can all spread out, anywhere we want.   BTW, stay off the old plowed roads where the ice looks smooth.  Some of them had a foot or so of water on them before it cooled off again and as of yesterday they were not all frozen back down to the original ice. I saw one truck got a little surprise.  Again take it slow and pay attention and you can go anywhere.   Good luck with those 'pout!   RR

      Del, it looks like the first time posters are coming after us!  I wasn't going to say anything else on this topic, but as long as Vermilion Boater called me out, I'll say a few more things and be done.  I've been a lake home owner up here for only 5 years , but I've been to The Landing numerous times over the last 5 years.  I've taken part in fancy 4-course meals, had the daily special and just a burger or a cocktail. Sat at the bar and Bs'd with the bartenders Justin and I think her name was Jesse and they were great.   I've been to (not really my favorite) The Crescent less than 10 times total!  I don't go to the lake to spend time in a bar, but once in a while, it's a nice change of pace.  When we have company, I'll usually bring them to The Landing, because the setting is hard to beat.  The service, meals have been great at times and not so great.  You never know if there going to be open all week, Thur-Sunday or Friday-Sunday!  I'm not giving my "drive bye" opinion of the place!  I've talked to locals, people working on my place, fishermen and read reviews here, FB, Trip Adviser and see that reviews are in-fact, all over the place. So, it's not my "narrow-minded" view!  I don't seek out opinions, they come up in conversation.  I'm glad you, your neighbors and friends enjoy it!  BTW, your vast knowledge of the competition, leads me to believe, you might have a vested interest in the place.  Ok, I'm done with this thread!

      I just came back from checking ice conditions on Big Bay. I found about 22 inches of good ice out there and very easy going! No real snow cover left, no slush, and smooth ice almost every where! Cliff

      Well another game fish season has came to a end. The dnr will be having a meeting this week in Kellier to discuss the up and coming open water season.. I be leave our cabins are wide open with narly a date penciled in this summer including opener?
      Grab a cup of java because this is going to be a long blog.
      The first thing is what a great ending to another game fish season .
      The biggest thing and this come from my heart is" Thank you" to all my new and repeat customers . With out all of you I would not be able to enjoy working on such a grand lake. When that old timer Dave shared that with me I was in Awe. "Its a grand lake and it owes me nothing, nothing was his quote and boy did that stick. The walleye fishing this year could of been better. I'm all most to the point of calling them the elusive upper red lake walleye?
      Just like every season for 14 years now we have had great fishing, good fishing and poor fishing. I guess its the luck of the draw when you come up. We caught a couple,, we caught some and we caught a few over the season. The fishermen have become a little more tight lip about there walleye catches over the last couple years. Its so funny when You ask a fishermen how they did. The ponder and say oh we got a few? I've always been like how many is a few? Its always well we got 18? To me a few is 3, a couple is two and some can be 1 or more.
      The dnr will be releasing a summery of what's happening on the lake in the next upper red lake association news letter. If your interested in joining and becoming a member its 25 dollars a year or 50 if you want your business listed on there web site.
      I have a few gripes I want to share also. Some you will have to read between the lines.
      The first thing is Saturday night I was coming off of the lake on Hillmens highway. Buddy Hillmen is so dedicated to his road and there is no one prouder when it comes to maintaining a ice road.
      As I was coming on to the landing a big wheel house turned off the highway. I new right away they did not pay 10 dollars and there's a sign right there that says 10 dollars. I rolled down my window and he was like wow I did not know where to pay. Where do you pay? He had no problem finding the access but did not see the lights on in the bar with a few vehicles there? Give me a break.
      Kelly, Buddy Hillmens mechanic got 3 Thursday night pulling in. If you can not afford 10 dollars a day for your wheel house ? I personally think wheel houses should have to pay more?
      I also had a few customers that tried to slide by this year and its very frustrating . The deal I have with buddy hillmen is I can use his access and in turn my customers have to pay 10 dollars a day. I'm on call 24 hours a day for any ice road work ,plowing, bridging, etc. Over the years I have been accused of fishing where some one was going to go? fishing on some ones way points? Cutting someone off. Every year its something and again this year was no exception? Any side roads I personally plow to my houses are always open. Do I want fishermen by my houses? Nope. My customers pay good money and I do not want them looking out the picture windows and seeing a wheel house 30 yards away. There is always plenty of room where I plow as I'm the rouge plower. I have no problem plowing out a driveway for a wheel house as it helps pay for my equipment as it takes a beating out there.
      Its been a crazy season and its not over for me as I again chase the elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie. to be continued
