New Trail Camera questions???

15 posts in this topic

Hey Hunters/scouters,

I have a couple questions but not to turn this into a which brand is better thing. So here are my thoughts and question and NOT to beat this to death like past postings. I hunt about two places during archery season so I don't need allot of cameras but I don't want to spend $400 bucks either. I have looked at the Moultrie models and the 4.0 megapixel is some what at my top dollar allowance. Is this a good product plus I want to have the IR or no flash option for sure. If I could find an alternative that is cheaper and reliable that would be find but my goal is to at least start with one and if the price is right get two.

Any thoughts on what your experience is and should I not over look the flash only models? I used a Cuddyback last year, there highest model and loved the images and the ease of it so I'm not into the video or other options just date, time, and good price.

My goal is to get a camera soon so I can start my summer patterning of deer for the up coming archery opener.

thanks for any input and suggestions.

I plan on picking up one or two Stealth Cam 590's this summer. Think its gonna be a great camera and just over $100, can't beat that. Otherwise call me MR and we can talk more.

I have four cameras two moultrie 5.0 outfitter cameras out of cableas $230 and two stealth cam 4.0 for $130. I love the moultries they take great pics day and night without spooking game. The stealth cams are also good for the price. I would recommend the stealth cam 4.0 models over the moultrie 4.0 models. If you can cough up a little more money I would recommend the moultrie 5.0 outfitter.

Doug,

Awesome information. Thanks for posting your .02. Are those prices normally a sale price or regular prices? I'll look into these and see what will work best.

Again thanks for your input.

Hey Tippman,

are those flash or IR? I really want to lean toward IR models unless you can educate me or prove to me that the deer don't mind the flash. I'm just thinking that the deer will get spooked with the flash OR do they get conditioned to it and over time it's not a big deal?

I've had great luck with the Cuddeback's. They've got a new one coming out shortly called the Capture and Capture IR. Even faster trigger speed than the previous models and way more economically priced. Definitely worth consideration.

Hey Tippman,

I just looked them up at Cabela's and it doesn't state what the trigger spead is. Do you have any experience with these? I noticed it is a flash unit. Not sure a person would want to place it over a salt lick or is it better served along a main trail?

Should be around a couple seconds. If you're looking for IR check out Stealth Cams I540IR, and it's only $120. Again check out the HSOforum I gave you "[YouNeedAuthorization]", lots and lots of info. Just not alot of detailed on what's new this year yet.

Almost forgot, in regards to the flash spooking them. I have noticed this some in the past but didn't get one image all of last year where it appeared that the flash scared off a single deer, and I had some beaties!

Your best bet for the latest and greatest news on cameras is to go to the internet and look for [YouNeedAuthorization]. Spelled just that way.

They have reviews on every camera made. Very worth your time if you are investing in cameras.

I had a friend leave one at my house--el cheapo from Wally world for about a hundred bucks--Moultrie 4.0. I put it up on a bear bait--not really knowing what I was doing. I figured for sure the flash would scare game. 1st night out and I got 2 bears and a wolf. This thing is neat as [PoorWordUsage]. Will post the pics under bear and deer.
