I would buy 2 Moultrie's for under $200. We have 6 - 4.0 mega pixel cameras and they work very well.

moultrie I40 are under $200. Contact your Family Outfitter in Walker and I'm sure they'll give you a great deal and possibly free shipping!!!!!

Mine was $179 back in August when I got it from that same Walker store..............

I second the Moultrie 4.0 right around $100 and take good pictures. Get a SD card for it however as I have had them take some random pics (especially if they are facing into the sun). Not a big deal as long as you have enough memory to get that deer when it does walk by. One thing. You'll probably have to buy a transfer cable or card reader with the 4.0 as mine didn't come with one. My 5.0 did however.

Cuddys are good cams too. I've been running 3 No Flash cams & viewer since March. Great pictures, decent battery life and very easy to use. I have had to send 2 in for repair which was painless. They even updated me to the newer style on the one... Trigger speed is good. But if seems as if a lot of guys are having great luck with the Moultries and I think battery life is better AND you get the temp and moonphase which I really like AND they're cheaper. There's a actually a topic on another site which goes into detail on how to make your own. Pretty cool. Total cost is around $75. Lots of good cams out there - they all have their perks. Just like anything else, they'll start coming down in price and get better and better. I sure wish I had about 10 more. Sure adds another dimension to scouting efforts.

    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.

    • This is silly town.  It was a joke, although on a stand alone basis the article was pretty interesting.   If it was an actual discussion item it would have been posted in one of the hunting forums. 
    • I oppose all that camera stuff, with auto ticketing.   How will the camera tell if there is water in my live well?  Or in my minnow bucket?  Will it focus on the plug as I drive into the parking lot?     I also oppose the red light cameras and speed cameras.  What's next?  Drones following us around? 
    • Must be a hell of a good camera and lens. And no, I follow the rules now as they are written.
