My apologies if this is not posted in the right section, but what trail cams have y'all found to be the best quality without breaking the bank?

i used to build my own, but I think the prices have come down so much that it is just as easy to buy..

i still own nothing but home made ones, so I can't offer any real advice.. I have heard lots of good things about moultrie's though...

I like Covert! I have some Moultrie too but i like the Covert better because of battery life.

I have two bushnell as well. They take great photo's and video's. They are a little pricey as I paid $129 a piece for them, but they are light years ahead of the Moultrie that I had before on both quality and battery life.

Thanks for the input. I have Primos, but the quality seems to have gone down somewhat since they sold. From what I've found, and what has been said here, it looks like Moultrie is the best bet. Thanks again!

I really like spypoint. I have several of them pic quality, battery life, and trigger speed all seem great! And they are around $80-100. I also have some of the moultie m-880 they seem to be really good cams as well.

The last 2 moultries I had went nuts. Both of them would take pictures almost non-stop. They took a picture every minute until the card was full. They didn't have a sensitivity adjustment on them either. They did fine for the first few months though.

First year that I have ever put any cameras out so I chose the Wildgame Innovations 6.0 MP infrared @ 59.99 just to see if I liked them...will see how they do in a few days when I check them again

Jv, the cheap Wildgame, I bought last year was ok and still is. But by far my old Stealthcam, flash units were my best. I think it's a personal decision.

Terry, like I said this is the first time I ever used a deer cam and I wasn't going to spend a lot of money just to see if it was something that I might be interested in doing so I chose the wild game....I set it up at my house and got out cutting the grass and it took good and clear photos and also did good at night. I haven't pulled the cards but a hunting buddy went and pulled them and checked them on his viewer and said I had some fair deer on them and the pictures where real good. One of them had several deer on it together with some big does. Several people along with the guy at Academy Sports said the Bushnell was one of the better cams but like I said I'm just trying something new.

Don't blame you a bit. All they do is show you what you have in the area at the time. Most I never see again. But, it gets the adrenaline flowing. I love viewing the pictures .
