And mine lasted a whole 6 months till it quit working....

Could be the only one, but it sounds like a lot of guys have had the same problems with their wild views....I did like it when it worked though.

Wildviews have a good track record for the money. I have more pictures from wildviews than any other camera but I've kind of moved away from them. They are good for feeders and food plots but that's about it.

I'd try stealth i450 with a 12volt battery pack. you'd be right around $150. Personally, i'd buy a couple less cameras and go with the moultire m40 (regular flash) or i40 (infrared flash). Battery life on these cameras is UNBELIEVABLE.

Let me know if you ever want to trade hunting spots

I wish I could go with less but I have a lot of ground to cover deer season starts sept 11th or around there and I live 6 hours away but I do have a buddy that will be moving the cameras around and we want to narrow down big buck alley. Im not kidding last yearday before season opened we saw u might not belive this but over400 deer in all the alfalfa feilds and out of all those deer 20 bucks forked horn or smaller so I know the big boys are way back in the trees. we walked 25 miles in five days and we harvested two 3 year olds 3x3. we just need to find where they are. We seen a lot of sign (big and alot oftracks) but no monsters

I use the moultrie D40. I have 3 of them out right now and the work great. They are 99 dollars at bess pro right now. I have 200 pictures on my main camera in 4 weeks and it still has 50% battery left.

Moultrie cams are good. Thats what I use.. If you check some of my posts you will see some pretty good pics for a camera that was under 100.

i have 2 moultries [1] game spy 100 and [1] d40
i was just bragging on the d40 the other day and this morning it started acting up. the 100 has been messing up for awhile. i have heard moultrie is easy to deal with and hopefully they will try to fix them.i will be contacting them soon. other than that i loved the pics they took.the 100 only worked good over bait or feeder as it triggered slow.
the d40 triggered fine.

ps. i used them in freezing temps and the manual says you shouldn't. could have been the problem.
