What do y'all think is the best game cam for the money. The one I have now will take pictures for about 2 days, then the batteries are dead. I would like one that I could leave for up to a month and it would continue to take photos. Thanks!

I bought 2 Brownings this year and totaly like one and don't care for the other.

The Strike Force is an awesome TC and has great ratings on the web and a decent price tag. Fast trigger and super photos for a red glow.

The one I wouldn't buy again, is also a Browning in the Black ops config, would be better suited to surveillance as mentioned in reviews.

I ordered mine below, for the free extended warranty and extra SD card a well as their TC testing.

Don't waste your money on the cheap ones. I spent hundreds of dollars at first trying Wildgame Innovations and Moultrie's. The cameras chewed through batteries before other problems showed up. I bought a Cuddeback three seasons ago and I have probably only put four sets of batteries in it running about 9 months out of each year. Last month I found it after a bad storm with tennis ball sized hail came through on the ground. The case had two chipped cracks in it, but it was still taking pictures.

I bought a Covert a few months ago for the email and text feature. It's been decent and reliable so far, but the quality and trigger are not as good as the Cuddeback. 2cents

I have tried several different brands of the smaller game cameras that use AA batteries, (Bushnell, Moultrie, StealthCam, etc). The only one that took good dusk/dawn pics was the Browning Strike Force. We are currently using 5 of these and are getting approximately 15000 pics on a set of 8 lithium batteries in these cameras. The number of days on the batteries depends on the number of pics per day, and the number of daytime vs nighttime pics. I couldn't be more pleased with these cameras.

I have 4 cuddebacks on my place and am very happy with the pics during day and night.

I have gotten rid of a moultrie and cabelas brand cameras as they didn't pan out due to poor quality or just poor performance.

I did pick up a bushnell trophy cam though but haven't gotten the pics yet so nothing to report on it.

Cuddeback customer service stinks. I only use Bushnell trophy cams now. Very long battery life and great pics.

I use stealth game cams with a battery pack. Work good and battery last a long time and then you just recharge it. Cameras cost $100-$125.

CS at cuddy sucks, won't buy one again.

Reconyx is suppose to be the best but I have no experience with them.

The 333 Moultrie with the fish eye lens? It was a great pic but was pretty wide for a shot on game.
