Default Moultries Vs. Cuddeback

Looking to buy a new trail camera. Only wanting to spend around $150, $160. I had bad luck with moultries in the past( ones with the big 12v batteries) have not tried a cuddeback, too much$$. What do recommend. Thanks.

I'd would go with a homebrew
this is a great camera from a builder who has built 100's of camera's

i have never had a problem with moultries and the way i look at it is you can put 2-3 moultries out for the price of one cuddeback. so even though they have a slower trigger speed they are the better choice

Bushnell Trophy Cams for me. You can usually pick them up on sale at one of the big box stores for around $140. I've run Cuddebacks, Moutries and some of the cheaper ones and I love the Bushnell Trophy Cams. Good detection area, have never had a problem not triggering and the battery life is unreal. I also use Cuddeback and really think they are a pretty good camera but run through battery life pretty quick, at least in anything below 40 I also think the IR could use some work but the flash ones do give good pics.

Personally, I'd stay away with anything that uses C or D cells if you plan on running it in any somewhat cold weather. You'll wind up spending more on batteries than you do on cameras. There are a few good review websites on out there that do some REALLY extensive tests that I have found helpful. Google reviews for the cameras you are looking at you should find the websites. I believe chasinggame is a good one.
