I'm going to ask Santa for a new trail camera. I've had good luck with a moultrie until the strap rotted away and it laid on the wet ground for a while. Since then it eats batteries and misses a lot of pictures. I replaced it with a stealth cam and I'm pretty disappointed with that one. The picture quality isn't as good as I was hoping for.

I have been looking at some Moultrie and Wildgame Innovations cameras. I'd like to stay in the $100-$150 price range. Does anyone have any recommendations for me? There are so many different models I can't decide which one would work best for me.

I have been real happy with the Browning I bought this year.
Not sure which model it is right now, but it was around $150.
It came highly recommended by the staff at the store and a couple customers who were standing around while I was trying to make sense of the many choices- I have not been disappointed.

Unless something changes I will never buy anything other than Browning cameras. Command ops, Dark ops, strike force. They are great cams in my opinion.

I have a Browning strike force and like it. Very easy on batteries.

I use the wild game innovations cams and have nothing but good luck with them. It's actually the only cam I use think I only paid like 50 bucks each for them , and they take great pictures and video

I got a couple of the Walmart "Tasco" cameras this fall, only $24.88 @. They work as well as any others I've got. Never spending big bucks on cameras again.

Iíve had lot of different cameras and the browning I have now is by far the best Iíve ever had. Itís the blackout model so no flash what so ever

Have a buddy that loves the covert cameras and he puts them through the wringer. I've only used stealth cam and Moultrie and between the two I'd rather have the Moultrie

Thanks for the advice. I'll do some research on the Browning camera's.

Here is one of the reasons I don't like the stealth cam. The trigger time seems very slow. I get a lot of butt picures. When we drive down that trail in the center of the field it never takes a picture. When we go back out it takes a picture every time.

It did get some decent pictures of this guy.

The Browning does a pretty decent job as long as the critter is not moving by too fast as it may only capture the butt because the shutter speed is not the fastest.

I like Covert. Good battery life, great pics, very dependable.

I use stealth cams I have had good luck with them the new G 42 ng was rated #1 recently I just bought one. Have not used it just yet but soon. I will let you know how the G 42 works out. My older stealth cam is over 10 years. As with technology all cameras get better each year.

Moultrie A5 is what Iíve been using for 5 years. Iíve had one go bad and another with a lazy lense, but for the price, theyíre hard to beat. I saw some Wildgame Innovations for $39.95 on sale at Dickís. I donít need any more cams or Iíd of tried one.
