      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

good cheaper trail camera recommendation

Recommended Posts

jay83196

Looking for some opinions on cheaper trail cameras (flash or IR) I have about 15 now but many of them are old models no longer available or newer ones I just not impressed with. I want to pick up couple more this year and not sure what to get don't want to spend more than $150 or so, I don't need anything really fancy just solid nice day/night pics, size, batt life etc not big focus.

Thanks

I bought a couple of the Primos 46IR's last fall at Wally world. They had them on sale for $100. They were ok. I have to play with them a little more. One thing about them if you do get them however, is to turn down the sensitivity if you have them anywhere near a field edge or where blowing grass/branches are in the picture. The first time I set mine, it filled up a 2GB card in about a day and a half because it was windy. I turned down the sensitivity and that problem was solved. Overall, I guess I would rather have a bunch of these than one Reconyx.

I'm running the cheap Moultries with IR flash and they do a decent job for $100. Trigger speed is too slow for deer as I get alot of rear end shots, although they work great for bear and take decent short videos. Battery life is great but they are HUGE comapaired to the newer models.

I just went out and looked and they are the Game Spy I-60

I have a couple like Johnny P and they have worked well. I also tried a Moultrie M-80 last year. You can find them on e b a y for just over a $100. Runs on AA batteries and will last a long time. I had mine out from last may thru december and still had 30% battery life left. Takes great daytime pics and the night pics are brighter then any I have seen for an IR. The trigger speed is not half bad either. Got a good review on chasing game. My wife got me the M-100 for xmas and have had that out for a couple of months, so far so good.

Moultrie ir 55's work great with a food source or salt block. Great daylight pics. Nighttime are mediocre. I have six and have zero issues with them. Good battery life. 6 C batteries are good for a few months for me. Ran them from july through full-18444-19907-shooter.jpg

But doing good with the primos 46 which isnt all that great with batteries, got a moultrie D55 an have had good luck with but my best cam is the moultril 6.0 not bad battry life good pics, spendy tho, but i got mine in the bargan cave for a hundy less than retail. A moultrie 5.0 flahs is a great cam but tough on batts. cause of flash.

I have several moultrie flash d5s but can't get anymore and newer replacement model is smaller better looking but doesn't work as well. Hard to find flash cameras I just like night pics better only benifit to IR batt life and not worried about that so much.

Just bought 2 more Moultrie M-80 cameras at the big C store for $119 think that makes 7 of them for me good cameras and the batteries last forever.

I would highly recommend the spypoints sold by gander mountain. They are great quality and have a good model for $100. The Spypoint 4mp I have takes great pictures and runs off of AA batteries. The battery life is great and lasted me 2 months and still had half the battery life when I changed them.

I have also owned the bushnell trophy cam and it is a good camera but in my opinion was exactly the same as the spypoint for more money.

I like my Moultrie IR 4.0's and I have 3 of them.

I think a 4Mp is all you really need if you can still find them. The pictures are plenty clear and you can still blow them up on a computer if you need to look more closely at them. Anything over a 4Mp is kind of overkill IMO.

I also have the Wildgame Innovations IR 6 and haven't had any problems with it. The camera takes decent pictures, definetly a good choice for the money!
