    I'm looking to get a couple of new trail cameras. I have used primos, wildgame, and Moultrie in the past and they all work alright, but I've had different issues with each. Does anyone have anything that they have used and can recommend for years of trouble free service?

    rodl,

    I have had several different brands of trail cameras over the years until I ran into the Cuddeback Brand. Now I will use nothing else. I like the Cuddeback Attack IR Model and have had excellent luck with them. They are fast triggered with quality pictures both day and night and are so simple to set up and operate a child can do it. Others if you do not do this or that correctly you return to find they did not operate or take pictures since you left them. So my recommendation hands down is the Cuddeback Brand and specifically for me the Cuddeback Attack IR. Try "one" I think you will be impressed. I now have 6 of them. I also have the Cuddeback Safes for them at the locations I use them. Great Cameras!

    Not to hijack the thread but I am contemplating spending some pretty good money on some too. I saw a nice 4 camera set from Leupold just wondering if anyone can comment on them? Thanks

    Similar experience. I went through a Moultree and another, forget the name, until I coughed up some extra for a Cuddeback. Better sensor, better quality pics. I used it to monitor my back yard, and even photographed the cardinals close up, it is that good.

    I have 4 of the Browning Recon Force trail camera's now. They have been excellent camera's,and the price was really good on them.
    I've had Bushnell,Moultrie,and Wildgame Innovation camera's in the past. The Bushnell's worked great for a couple years,then I had problems with them.One stopped taking pictures,and the other wouldn't stop taking them after it was first triggered.
    As usual,Bushnell Customer Service was totally useless. I sent both camera's in for repair,and they sent me a postcard in the mail saying they were beyond repair. Really,they can't replace the trigger set-up in these things? I have had problems in the past with Bushnell CS,and after this,you couldn't give me ANY Bushnell product.

    The Moultrie camera's that I've had worked OK,but since they used "D" batteries,the battery life sucked. They also had really slow trigger times.
    The Wildgame camera's are complete junk,and I wouldn't buy another.

    You will get the best battery life out of the camera's that use "AA" batteries. They will last for several months,and take thousand's of pictures.

    its hard enough for me to find time during hunting season let alone during the offseason to just sit and hunt nothing in the woods. to gain insight of how many and what size the animals are... and of what variety.



    i picked up a moultrie cam at a yard sale this summer. tried it out in the back yard and i can aggree it seems to take a few moments before snapping a picture. but the pics looked alright. as far as battery llife and such i guess i'll see soon.

    You must hunt a small piece of land.
    We have 760 acres to cover. It's a lot easier letting the camera's do the work.
