Default Help w/ Trail cams......

Hey guys:

I'm a board member.....but I guess I've taken the warm season "off". I'm getting ready to start cutting trails.....and I've got my stand locations set. The feeders go back out, tomorrow (Yes...feeders are legal in my state....but I don't hunt over them. I have three to set out on the tract I hunt), and I'm wanting to get some trail cam pics. I don't think I need to have the best.....but I do know I want digital......at least 2.1mp. What a "Good" (not great) trail cam for a reasonable price?

Thanks.....an I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

Jeff

Stealth cams are great. I have a 3mp camera but I have it set down to 1.3 or something. I use 512mb cards and I can get many more pics on it by setting it to 1.3. I will be buying a few more this year and I will not waste the $$$ on high resolution cameras. THis is a scouting tool for me. I am not taking photo for the Associated Press. I would rather spend the money on additional flash cards. I have two cards per camera locxation and that makes it easy to swap out and save pictures in an organized way. I can get in and out quickly swap the cards and rush home to see the pics.

If you just looking for a cheap camera Moultrie 200 isn't a bad camera. You can get them off of ebay for a good price. Even the older Cuddeback 1.3 are still better than some of the newer cameras and you can find them for a very reasonable price now.

The 200 is definately the way to go. Its not the greatest but gets the job done. One thing I've found with mine is I have the best results when it is only about 18-20 off the ground. When I had it higher it missed alot of pictures. Also, it has a slower response time so put it at a feeder, mineral lick, or aim it down a trail not across it. That way you'll have better luck at getting full pictures, not just halves of deer.
