Default Beware H.S. Rack Tracker camera

I purchased the New H.S. Rack Tracker digital Camera from Cabelas a couple of weeks ago and returned it today. The battery life was about 7 days, more than half the pictures taken looked like a test pattern and the pictures that you could see, were pictures of deer rumps. The LCD screen Quit working within days. When I approched the return counter at Cabelas another guy was just finishing up his return of one, he stated he had the same problems. I asked the clerk if they were seeing alot of them returned and she rolled her eyes and yes. She said the Stealth Cam Digital was another one that they were seeing alot of returns on. Of course I wanted to trade it for the Cuddeback, but they were sold out so I placed a back order for one, I hope I have better luck with it.

Thats too bad. I just picked up my first stealth cam today. Decided to start cheap and see just how important it was to me before I go and spend the real bucks.

Thanks for the info. I am getting ready to purchase a couple and it won't be either of the two you mentioned. Again, thanks for the advice.

Thanks for the heads up. What are you planning on replacing it with, or are you even going to replace it. I've been luck, I got the 1.3 mp digital stealth and have had great luck sofar. Battery life is about 3 weeks. If I were to get another I would seriously consider building a homebrew.

I have quite a few stealth cams and they work fine. I have not had any problems with them. For the money you can't beat them.
