Default Trail cameras

Best one for the price? I'm still using some old ass moultries. A5. Seen a few deals on some no flash 2 package deals. Want to grab 1 or 2 to take to Iowa with me. Don't need any fancy cell cams, just want to know what's a good camera for a gatorB price

The Browning strike force is a damn good camera for the money.

The Bushnell cameras are a little better but a little more expensive.

I've had nothing but good luck with wildgame cameras. I have one going on its 5th season. I bought 2 terra 6s I think from Dicks before last season and they are both running strong. Got them for $35 a piece on clearance.

The key to making trail cameras last is to buy 2 new cards every time you get a new camera. Label the cards and only use those 2 in the camera. NEVER check your cards with a digital camera.

I've been using the bushnell trophy cams over the last few years and they seem to work well unless they jump off the tree and walk away on their own.

I run mine on video so I can't comment much on their pictures but there videos are top notch and the sound feature is interesting, especially when bucks are sparring

No you did not. Best of luck with the cameras Jim. I use cheap WGI cams and they last about 4 to 5 years and then go tits up. Meh uggh

This too. You have to format your SD cards in the trail camera after viewing with laptop, iPhone, reader, camera, etc. And try to face them north and high pointing down.
