moultrie camera

10 posts in this topic

Just picked up a gamespyi40 ditial game camera by moultrie. Any advice on this. The experts at the big box store knew nothing about them. I would hate to spend the $$ on the wrong camera. Any help would be appreciated.

I have two. They work fine. I don't think they are as good as the Cuddeback, but for the diffence in price, they are a good value. Simple setup. Good options/features. And, I have been impressed with the battery life. About the only knock I have is that pictures where the deer is moving sometimes are blurred.

i've got a moultrie 5.0 outfitter i/r. been a great camera for the money. it's been out since memorial day weekend, taken over 1700 pics of deer, and only used 13 percent of its battery life on 6 D cell batteries. thats dang hard to beat.

Great cam . Between my brother, father, and myself, we have four. I won a photo contest with a pic that was taken in mid december with one of the moltries. It was the deer and turkey expo. We have had great luck and like that the battries last for 4-6 weeks. We put in a 1gig and get around a 1000 pics. We have lost one to the bears and had the bears take down two others The backs are broken off were the strapes go through and tooth punctures on the front, we just put silicone on them and hung them with bungycords. still working great

For the Money gamespyi40 by Moultrie is a Good Value.

We use 3 of them and like them.

No, not all of the Pictures are perfect, We do get a "white"

Picture from time to time but over all I'd give them a thumbs UP!

Much better Value than a Cuddeback.

Cuddeback spends to much money on B.S. advertising

(stupid comercials) which in return raises the Price of there Camera.

If you wanna spend "more money" get yourself a RECON

Scoutgaurd cameras are lookin to be just as good or better then the moutries. i have 3 I-40's and 1 SG550 and i get waaay better pics out of my SG! More options too, the only setback is that you need a remote to do any programming, but its pretty easy to remember to just bring the remote!

OK, I have to respond for you on the Moultrie i40. I have been researching IR cameras for about 1 1/2 years and finally purchased this model. First off the price is great, around $179 at a Family Outfitter near Walker, hint, hint. Anyways the trigger speed is very good and I have had it in my woods for more than a month with no battery loss or replacement yet but I'm sure that will decrease soon as we get some colder weather.

I have compared this unit to just about every IR unit and this in my opinion a much better unit than a Cuddyback. Last year I used a Cuddy and hands down the moultrie has waaaaay better images. This is just my opinion but I have done a ton of research and will stand by this unit for the price, quality, trigger speed, and value over any other IR unit on the market. Buy it you will not regret it. If you include your email address I will send you some pictures this morning to prove it. Any major retailer or HSOforum that carries these will tell you they sell more of this unit, i40 than any other for the same price.

Thanks to all for the input. I put out the camera this morning and am hoping for some good results. I have a daughter that is 12 bowhunting for the first time and am hoping the camera will shorten my scouting time and put her on some deer. Thanks again!

    • Just said he's been down a long time.....hours. Guess it's a dead rescue. Every friggin' year...it ought to be MANDATORY that you carry and use a spud when venturing out on the ice...or wear one of the ice fishing suit PFD's. 
    • academic research.  Maybe some day, but for now I would say walleye in stores and restaurants comes from netting in Canada.   Or is zander from Europe... 
    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
