Question Best least expensive trail cam?

Im thinking about putting a trail cam up at the house. Ive got deer around that come around at night and I want to see what they are.

Dont really need anything fancy. Just cheap and reliable and easy on batteries if there is such a thing.

What yall say?

Go to Wally World. The Primos aren't that expensive and seem to be better than Wildgame to me.

Should have gotten one at the end of the season when they're half off.

Got a Moultrie you can have.

Can't see the menu to do any programming, but if you put batteries in, turn it on and leave it alone it will take pictures.

I'm done with cheap trail cams.. Never will I own another Wild Game Innovations either.
I'm very happy with the new Primos Ultras and the Covert Black 60. All my cams will be the black out style from now on

The Primos Ultra I had sucked. I sold it cheap to a buddy of mine last week. I have had real good luck with my Moultrie M80 so far. Check Ebay, you can get some good deals.

There are bad cams with all manufacturers. I've had good luck with my Truth46. The wildgame that I have sucks most of the time, the Moultrie D55IR is ok.

The last one I owned was a Moultrie D80. Gave like 89.99 for it at Wal Mart back in 2007.

I took 6 or 8 D cells but they lasted a long time. It was a great cam
