Trail Camera Advice

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm looking at getting a trail camera to monitor deer activity on our property. I've been doing a little bit of research and it seems everything I read is different. I want to get something that is digital and something that the batteries will not go dead on too quickly. I would like to keep the price range in the $100 to $150 range as well.

Can anyone suggest any cameras in this price range that they've had good luck with? Some of the draw backs I have read about are that the trigger time on some cameras is too slow and you miss the deer, have also read that some take poor quality photos or the flash is too bright and is drowns out the photo.

Any insight on this topic would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I like the Menards cam, but it does not have time and date. I placed mine facing to the east, so I would know if it was sun up or sun down.

It takes good images aswell. look at my post in the Trail cam area.

I just bought the Moultrie 4.0 from Wal-Mart for $98.00 and I really like it.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
