the $70 Moultrie from Walmart is decent...takes good video and decent night/day pics...and also decent on price.

Primos is hard on batteries and not very good night pics...if you are looking for quality pics look at the megapixels...primos is really low on night pics...

Wildgame make crap cameras.
Don't buy them.
You won't be happy.
Save up and get in the $200 range of cameras and you'll be a lot happier.
My $200 Scoutguard turned 7yrs old this yr and it still works as good as the day I got it.
I change the batteries twice a year in it.

Think of it this way:
Spend less on a camera and buy tons of batteries or buy a decent camera and change the batteries a couple times a yr. Do the math.

I change the batteries every 14 months in my Reconyx and that's about 22,000 pics worth.

I would say Moultrie and Covert for your price range. Stealth cam is trying to get better But not there yet.

moultries are great. personally, i'd avoid any models that start w/ 'D'. i've used just about every brand over the years and moultries are my work horses.

saw that menards (local to MN?) had some cams for $35. i don't remember the make or model. wouldn't mind throwing a couple of them on the public land i hunt and hope they don't disappear.

To everyone on here supporting Moultrie.
I guess you've never dealt with their CS because it's horrible.
So bad that I refuse to buy their cameras anymore.

Lately Moultrie has been much better on their Customer Service,I had a few issues and they helped me a lot so my faith in them is much better now!

Another thing to do is go to www.chasingame.com and check out their reviews on different trail cameras and ask others what experiences they have had with different trail cameras they have used!

I agree with Chasingame.com as being a great resource on checking trail cams out before you buy one.. I am not going to try and sell any brand as that is not up to me.. I would check the reviews and then check ebay or amazon to see what they have to offer.. You can get some great deals if you know what you want.. Myself I love my stealth prowler and would not sell it for nothing even though some have had problems with theirs.. It was down to ten below here last night and I still got some pics from earlier in tha day as well as last night when it was below zero.. So what can I say..
