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.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
