Default Trail Cams With Best Battery Life?

Hi all! I have been fortunate enough the last few years to live minutes from my hunting grounds so battery life for my cams weren't a huge issue. I will be moving to a new house in a month so I'm in search of a cam with long battery life. I had 3 Primos Truth 35 cams that I loved and the battery life was amazing. I'd take thousands of pics and have that thing out there weeks sometimes months at a time on a single set of batteries. They were all bought a few weeks from eachother since I had such great luck but each one died at the 1 year mark. I think that's more than a coincidence and refuse to get another. I'd say around $125 would be my limit. I'd hope to get something that last a month in warm months. Maybe a solar adapter what I need?

Any advice would be most helpful, thanks!!!!

I did a search on the boards for battery life but nothing came up, sorry if it was a repeat question. I'll take a look at the suggested cams, thanks!

That chasinggame.com link was great, thanks!! Just bought a Bushnell
Trophy Cam 8mp for $120 off of amazon. Sounds to fit the bill for what I'm looking for. Thanks again

Covert MP6.... Any Covert you get will have the best battery life hands down, but the MP6 should come in at you price limit.

My Reconyx will take about 20,000 pics on one set of batteries that last about 15months.

For the price point you can't beat Bushnell Trophy Cams. I add two a year and am up to 8 now. I run them 6 months a year and still am on the original batteries on the ones three years old and younger and have over 10,000 pics on some. I just picked up another HD Trophy cam last week off of Walmart.com for a $139 which was a great deal.
