RE: scouting cameras
I am with Hunter, the cam trakker has been our best performer to date. It may carry a higher price but I can' t say I have heard many neg. points on it, on any of these forums. The same can' t be said about a number of cheaper ones out their. Buy a 35mm one as well, a buddy has the digital camtrakker(1 year old) and gives aweful quality pics.
I built a homebrew from Jesse Homepage and it is decent for the money. It doesn' t have all the setting and tends to take a couple of ghost pictures a roll but for the money invested it is alright. If you have some skill and time I would suggest giving it a go, much better than nothing and better then: Moultrie' s, Game VU and few other cheapo' s. I like the looks of the woodswatcher that Woods mentioned, may try it next.
