might be in the market for one of these this year. i know you get what you pay for but i don't think i need all the bells and whistles, plus i don't have an engineering/IT degree/ patients, to learn how to work one.

so, which one is for me? i just want to see if anything is walking by my bow blind.

Go to http://www.chasingame.com/ it is a good site that is used for finding out info on a variety of different TC's. They test a lot of them and post feedback. I have used it for a couple of years now.

I have been using Primos 35 Truth cams and Spypoint 7.0 for the past couple of years with great success. Both last a long time on batteries. Natchez Shooting Supply has both new and refurb Primos 35 Truth cams with warranty on sale. I bought 2 of Primos 35 refurbs for $49 each. I think the new ones are around $75 each on sale. I get well over 10,000 pics from one set of batteries on them.

x2 on the P35s.. probably the most user-friendly cam you'll come across. I don't mind my wife checking those

Another for the Primos 35, I have several and have run them year around for several years with zero issues.

I check those too... she'll forget to reformat the Xcams and they won't take pics until I get there to do it..so I tell her just to avoid those.

Primos are the easiest to use cams on the market I have used. Spypoint is pretty simple also. Primos has a great customer service if you need to use it.

I've got a pair of Primos 55s from Cabelas. They're easy to use with no issues whatsoever. I also have a Moultrie - it's okay, but picky about which memory cards it will accept. I think the Primos 55 is on sale @ Cabelas right now for $120.
