I have heard a ton of good things on here and other reviews about the moultrie infrared 4 megapixel. I believe the are $199 though. They take good pictures day or night without the flash and have enough battery power to get you though the season!

I think they're kind of slim pickens' for a good one around $100.

Stay away from Wildview, I have two, was told they were good, I've returned one three times. It takes good pictures but there is something goofy with the circuitry, won't shut off, won't turn on, etc.... Both moultrie and stealth have some 4 megapixels for about $100.

moultrie 4.0 would be my first pick with the stealthcam 3.0 as my second.

the moultrie has a quicker sensor, takes SD cards instead of Compact Flash, and also offers 10 sec video. both are about 100 bucks.

I havent looked at the cameras this year but last year the moultrie seemed to be the best deal when you compair options and price

Just saw the 4.0 Moultrie on sale at Wally World for 75 bucks. Not too bad for the money but don't expect perfection with these!

The old style moultries are in your price range. The ones I dealt with were good on batteries and very reliable, but the trigger speed was slow. You'd have to be working over some type of bait to get pictures. I use mock scrapes and get nice pictures of bucks with mine.

    •   You need to stop eating those funny mushrooms before wondering around in the woods like that. You could get lost! Lol
    • No, not morels (at least not here), but I saw two different species of mushrooms on a little walk through a local woods: the "orange peel fungus" (aleuria aurantia) and one little brown mushroom that I couldn't identify.  The season isn't that far away!!

    • Weather around the state has and will continue its fickle behavior as we close out an exceptionally warm week and move toward a significantly cooler weekend. Rain and snow are predicted across the state, with temperatures expected to fall rapidly Friday into Saturday, leading many to wonder if any of this precipitation will stick around long enough to revitalize the snowmobile and ski trails. Currently snowmobile trails remain open in a few northern counties, but conditions are very poor with bear spots and some standing water according to the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails have similar conditions where they remain open.Eagles are congregating along the Mississippi River just in time for Bald Eagle Appreciation Days at Prairie du Chien this weekend.Photo Credit: Donna HigginsThe warm front has also strongly effected ice-cover on state water bodies and anglers are also eagerly waiting to see what the weekend's cold front will provide. The ice on southern lakes is deteriorating fast and is unsafe to fish. Even in the Northwoods some waters are breaking up and where the ice is still thick there is plenty of water on it, and areas of open water have started to show up along shorelines and in marshes and especially around beaver lodges. As a result, many anglers have taken advantage of warm temperatures for open water fishing. This past weekend 100 plus boats were fishing the Fox River from the 172 Bridge to the dam at Voyageur Park. Anglers in boats have been having mixed results catching coho salmon and brown and rainbow trout in the Milwaukee Harbor and in Oak Creek. Anglers were open water fishing the Rock River for walleye and sauger, where the bite was on at the Indianford Dam. Sauger and walleye were biting on Lake Wisconsin. Warm temperatures and rain will have the Wisconsin River back above flood stage this weekend. .
    •   My two cents... if you use vinyl you will never have to replace it again. When is the water ever going to hit it and STAY moist? That is what carpet does, vinyl will allow the water to roll right off.
