Does anyone use these and do you get any pics that aren't blurry? I bought one this year and not a cheap one. One of their higher end cameras. I have yet to get a quality pic from this thing. Blurry and not very many pics at all. Have been sitting in the blind watching deer in the pen for 45 minutes and then, no dang pics. I usually use Bushnell Trophy Cams and love those, but they didn't have any when I bought this one back in the summer. Just wanting to know if it's this particular cam or the brand in general.


Secede!!

I think they're pretty much junk. But so are a lot of the others.

I heard too many bad reviews. I went with a Browning and I have been happy so far.

I have two . One is just ok , but the other takes photos like a high dollar 35mm camera . They are postcard quality . I have some other more costly game cams , I have had as many problems with some of the expensive one as the cheap ones . Most all are made in China , so it is a crapshoot .

I've got one that is on it's fourth year and so far it's been flawless. I had two of them but can only guess what the second one is doing since some low life bastage stole it. realmad

I bought the cheapest WG cameras I could find online. I was concerned about some lowlife stealing them. Sense the camera is so cheap they just steal my SD cards. bang
I have several WG cameras, they all work good. Picture quality isn't the greatest at night, but they get the job done.

I have a WG camera that I purchased almost 5 yrs ago. Its still works flawlessly. I had to replace the pir sensor cover two yrs ago, but other than that its been great. With that said I bought a new one this year that takes great day pics, but the night pics are hit and miss. The battery consumption on both has been relatively good on all my WG cameras. I would say almost as good of battery life as in my Bushnell trophy cam.

I've wasted money on a few of their products.

Although the solar panels are decent.

I've owned three of their cameras. All three died within a year.

Ditto.

What is bad, I bought a "2 pack" and went back for a 3rd 2 days later. Longest one lasted almost 12 months, battery life was horrendous for me. Bought a couple Browning Strike Forces and never looked back.

Even their deer corn is bad. It is not clean at all, it would stop the crap out of a feeder!!!

I bought a WGI camera less than a year ago with a gift card I got from work and it quit working just before opening day. Battery life was terrible and night time pictures were so blurry you could barely distinguish bucks from does. IMO they're nothing but junk.


I took the road less traveled

Definitely better cameras on the market but I bought mine on sale at Academy for $49.99. Batteries last about a month at 600-800 pics per week on high resolution. Pics are pretty good.. I have no complains for what I paid! Sometimes I get pretty good pics of the feeder throwing corn.

Haha I posted pics of him in the deer hunting section. General consensus is Injury while in velvet.. probly during the summer. He's my Fiance's target buck this year.

Hold your horses fella........

.......I'm on month three goin strong! roflmao

Truth is, I bought one, got out to the ranch just to find out it didn't work bang ! Had to take it back and exchange for a new one, this one's worked fine! Only complaint is I spend about $10/month on AA batteries. SO..... by this time next year, IF it's still taking pics, I'll have the most expensive trail cam on the market!

Okay so you were on round 2 before you ever got started, trust me your current one is nothing but a ticking time bomb. I'm not saying that they are trash, I've even considered getting a cheap one to watch down a 4 wheeler trail to see what animals use it, but I don't think the camera is worth the money. If your real worried about it getting stolen then sure, which by all accounts I worry about mine in E Texas, but I'll stick with the Browning strike force with a steel box bolted to the tree.

It's personal preference really. Trust me I didn't exactly like the price tag on the Browning but after reading a lot of reviews on different cameras I bought the Browning after last deer season.

And before y'all jump on me for not having personal experience with a WG camera, I have a father, grandfather, and an uncle that have all bought a WG camera in the last 2 years and the one bought this summer is still working but we've had to tinker with it, the others are dead. Haven't had one last more than 11 months yet


See y’all around the campfire.
