The Moultrie Trace cam usually $99, now on sale for $39. Online reviews were good, not great but went ahead and picked one up. Will post pics tomorrow that it takes in the backyard tonight. If they're good I'll go back and get more tomorrow.

So here is a pic it captured of my pooch last night.



To give reference points, the edge of the house is about 25 feet from the camera, the fence in the background is about 80 feet. Not overly impressed with the field of view, but for 40 bucks, I'll take it!

Also just noticed, it looks a heck of a lot better on my laptop than it does in that uploaded pic above. Don't know what happened there. confused2

Haven't set mine up on the house yet, but that pic pretty much is what the reviews said. Yep, $40 bucks is still a good deal for me. I do like the mounting bracket too.

That was also on the 4mp setting, will turn it up to 8mp tonight to see the difference.

For $39. you cannot go to wrong...I ordered one from the internet / Academy trail cameras. I had to put Moultrie Trace in before they showed up. Tempted to get another.

Here are a couple pictures from my Trace from Academy. I have since moved the cam to a new spot higher off the ground. First time to use a trail camera and found out that the grass blowing in front of it will cause it to pretty much continually snap pictures and run the batteries down in a matter of days. The last picture is of my wife testing it after the move.

Thanks for the heads-up. I just returned from the Arlington Academy and bought the last two on display. They were still marked $99, but rang up at $39.

Hows the battery life on those things? I had a Moultrie but it crapped out on me after 1 season. It was also so sensitive it took pictures every 30 seconds. Thing was a hunk of junk and has kept me away from Moultrie cameras. However, for $35 bucks might be worth a shot.

Yeah I was curious what the battery life is too.
