Not on that specific set up but from my experience with wildgame innovations its pretty much hit or miss. You will find some people who love it and then you will find some people who hate it. My camera i bought from them was also from academy and its pictures where always blurry and the camera broke within 2 weeks (water damage) but others with that same exact camera it took awesome pictures and lasted them forever. Honestly though at that price take the risk. Cant beat that price! Hopefully you get a stud not a dud. Goodluck to you!


God Bless

I have two of them. The batteries go for and 3-4 months at 700-800 pictures a week for me. I made sure and pointed mine low an the ground under the feeder, it took a lot more picture that way. I am about 25 and 30 feet away from the feeder, a bit further away would give a wider picture, I just haven't tried it.

PaulZ2 is right on the love them-hate them part. I am no Wildgame advocate, but all 8 of mine work great. I had a $49 Wildgame camera poop out at 3 years old, I could not complain. I know guys that by a new $200-$300 camera every few years and brag about the reliability.

I have one of the $80ish WG's from two years ago and it's a good camera. Point it lower than you think as Paul said.
