Trail Cam - Not for hunting

4 posts in this topic

Every weekend I'm up at the cabin and I see all kinds of tracks and scat around...wolf, fox, deer, coyote etc. Most of it is new from the week before and I'd like to set up a camera so I can get a look at what's running around when I'm not there.

I have a vision in my head of me pulling out of the driveway and, as soon as I'm out of sight, all these critters emerge from the woods and hang out until I get there the next week.

Can anyone suggest a trail cam or something that would help me capture these guys on film? Don't want to spend a fortune, just curious to see what I've got there.

Thanks all!!

Moultrie 4.0 flash. You'll spend right around $100 for the unit. Takes 6 D cell batteries that I've had real good luck with decent battery life. I have 4 of them. I have 2SD cards for each unit so that I can switch cards out in the woods (use to drag the laptop with me before to pull pictures off).

I have a Moultrie 4.0 infrared. good unit not great. Goes for $200. Trigger time is a bit slow. Lots of units in the $200 range. Check out the Scoutgards. They seem to be the best bang for the buck right now. Those trail cams are a blast!

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
