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.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
