Game cameras

Reply
Alright everyone I'm looking for some really good game cameras and looking for opinions. This is what I want in a camera. 1. Camera that takes good clear pictures day or night. 2. Camera that has fast trigger speed. 3. Camera that can take a second picture quickly, no 10 or 15 second recovery time. 4. Smaller bodied camera if possible. 5. Prefer camera that uses double A batteries than D batteries. 6. Camera that doesn't alert deer to its presence before taking picture (many cameras like Moultrie, Wild game emit red light before taking picture and deer is always looking at camera, I want a completely covert camera. I have a Swampghost and it's completely covert and fast can get 6 or 7 pics of a buck working a scrape and he never knows but range is very limited, good for scrapes or specific trails.) 6. Camera that has a good range. 7. Camera that is simple to use and very reliable. The camera that fits almost all these needs is the Reconyx but I would like to have 3 or 4 and Reconyx is just too expensive especially if one dissapears. Anyone have any good input on a good alternative. Thx Jim

Seagull is right, chasingame is the place to start. I've got a couple of the Bushnell TC's; they suit me, have a fair price, and have a 2 year warranty. Moultrie ain't gettin another dime from me. Good luck.

I tell ya, between 3 of us, we have several types of cams, and the best is without a doubt, Cuddie Back cameras. very fast trigger, I have pics of birds flying by, a bobcat catching a rabbit, coyotes, and the main thing deer. Takes good day and night time pics. Get the IR if you dont care for the flash, but I will tell ya, flash has not affected deer on our plots and feeders.

I AGREE with Dannyl, i been using cuddebacks since 2004. I tried em all but cuddeback is without a doubt the most reliable. The flash has never spooked my deer and its completely silent as it takes a pic.

SOUNDS LIKE THE CUDDY BACK IS THE WAY TO GO. WHICH MODEL DO YOU GUYS PREFER? THEY GET KIND OF EXPENSIVE. I HAVE THREE WILDGAME CAMERAS AND I WOULDNT SUGGEST THEM TO ANYONE. THEY TAKE TERRIBLE PICTURES AND FEW OF THEM. SLOW TRIGGER SPEED.

I bought 4 cuddie IR's last year, they worked great for 1/2 season. 2 of the 4 are still working flawlessly, 3rd one eats batteries quickly now, and 4th just plain died, won't do nuthin'. I love the camera security box cuddie offers, it works great!

I bought 4 Primos ir 35's this year. I am very happy with those cameras.Batteries lkast forever it seems. I do not like the military time it reflects tho, nor do I care for the security box for them. I modifed the boxes fairly easy, and they now work good. I think I'll stick to the Primos, got them for 90 bucks versus the cuddies usually costing 200 bucks or so.
