Figured $49.95 wasn't risking much and since all cams have issues I'd give the TASCO cheapy a try. It is BARE BONES. 3 megapixels, limited IR for night pics, and NO programming options. It's weird because it has date and time stamps in a chip in it that you have to use your computer to program.

Average pics and at night it is only good for the central area (as evidenced by poor light and resolution on the background deer). But, if it lasts I'll probably buy more.

It serves the purpose. I picked up a Moultrie A5 gen 2 at Academy today, marked down from $79 to $59

Gonna run it through some tests and if it does well, grab some more while they are on sale this week.

Hail naw. That one has the classic "sawhorse" stance of CWD. He'll probably keel over in a couple of months. I'm running my own experiments. banana2

Wow! After further review, the one on the left has the same "sawhorse" CWD stance!!! Maybe the state needs to come try to kill all my deer???

Dear god in heaven, please let them try.

Hey great looking bucks!

Thanks for the review. I just got some of the covert trail cams and I'm trying g them out. So far all I found out it was cheaper to put them on my family plan than to use them on the single session plan, pay as you go type thing. Saved me $30 a month.

They all have quirks but so far I have been pleased with covert.These are not cheap, but I thought I'd mention them anyway since I'm trying them out right now.

Natchez usually has refurbs for sale as well. I picked up two original Primos Truth Cam 35s for $49 a couple of years ago and they're both still going strong. Great pics day and night too. Only downside is D cell batteries.

Neither of the Natchez Primos 35's that I bought worked over 30 days. I tossed both.

The Moultrie A5 is pretty poor. Hundreds of picture of nothing and I took it back to Walmart.

Great Curtis, keep me in the loop on how they perform please. I'm considering a few of those too.

I love that first pic. And yeah, I flat out refuse to use anything but AA's anymore.
