Anybody use one of these yet,I have a few of the deer cams but they eat batteries big time, any hints?

Is it true that the owners name is on all pictures with the Cuddy???

Thanks

I have you the Cuddyback digital camera and I used it last fall, without any problems. I have used other cameras and so far of the ones I have tried this one is very user friendly. Yes, you can imprint your name, time and date on each picture. The memory cards are nice, and when formatted I can use one of my cards from my Cannon PowerShot digital and use it in the Cuddy. With the 128 mb card you get about 400 images, I then just use my Cannon to view the pictures, and I use the Cannon software to put them on my PC. Battery life was never a problem with our camera, it seems all makes of cameras very on this issue and at times from identical cameras.

The down side of this camera other then cost is that some other cameras like the Deer Cam (same makers of the Cuddyback) allow you to set camera delays from 15 seconds to an hour. The time delay on the Cuddyback only allows you to set the delay from 1 minute to 1 hour. Many times if used on a trail a buck is following closer then a minute behind. I have a feeling unless it's impossible because of it being a digital, that this feature will be improved very soon. Also the internal memory on the Cuddyback is nice and works fine however the clarity and quality of the picture is not nearly as sharp and crisp as with a memory card. The biggest buck I got a picture of was with the internal memory because my card was full. I can see it is a very nice deer but can't get an exact point count. I also have my own land so I don't worry to much about leaving the camera in the woods, I have a feeling this rig would be picked like a grape if some passerby came along. I sure hope some of this helps.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
