Hey guys, I need to buy about 15 cameras for our new place. Gonna put them out this month and plan on leaving them year round. Would like opinions on best bang for the buck camera, being I need so many. Thanks 🙏

You'll likely get many opinions. I've had experience with Stealth, Bushnell, Cuddeback and Browning and can honestly say I would not recommend any of them to someone. They have all failed and frustrated me. I would not buy 15 of the same kind. Vary what you buy based on recommendations then see which ones serve you the best.

I have three Browning Strike Force cameras of various ages - 4 years/3 years/2years. All three are going strong operating 24/7 since the day they were bought. Simple navigation. Excellent battery life (like 7,000 pictures on a set of six AA batteries). Good clear day and night pictures.

These have really good reviews, except they aren’t “no glow”, does it matter?

Sometimes it looks as though a deer will alert to the camera mounted waist high. Not every time, but once in a while. But I've found that if you mount the camera five or six feet above ground level angled down at your target area the deer never notice them.

I have one plotwatcher and after using it for a year I plan on more. It is a time lapse camera that turns individual pictures into a movie. With software you can then search the movie for animals. I can cover an entire food plot or shooting lane, not just what is immediately in front of the camera. You might consider them for part of your camera arsenal. I'm surprised they are not more popular. I have it set to take a picture every 5 seconds all day. The con is that it would only be good during daylight. Though mine has been on 24 because it is a lighted feeder for hog hunting. AA battery life has been very good. I think I got over 3 months on the last set of AA batteries when I had it set to daylight only. A cropped example with it set at 10 second intervals.

Here is where you need to go to see true reviews about a bunch of camera's. I've bought 10 from these guys over the years, had to send 2 back.
Both times they sent me the new camera before asking to return the old one. They really stand behind what they sell.

I'm running close to 80 covert. No they are not the best but the main reason I have stuck with them is the customer service. I have 14 of the cell the rest are MP8 just had them ship me 6 of the newer version of the MP8 last week for less then 100 dollars they are a tough camera to beat. Pm me if you want to discuss over the phone.

I run about 10 Browning Strike Force 9 months out of the year and have had no problems with any of them. I also run about 6 various models of moultrie and the older models are still doing great. The newer models in my opinion are junk and I stopped buying moultrie when they changed it where you cant view pics on an ipad. I also have 4 Spartan GoCam cellular cameras that I run all year long—-i love these and they recently went down on their retail price and data plans. I will continue to purchase the Browning Strike Force and the Spartan cellular.

Avoid the latest generation of Cabelas trail cameras. The ones I am running all produce low quality video and have a mechanical sound (shutter) which disturbs the animals and is annoying when watching the recorded videos. This is with the recommended firmware upgrade which was supposed to resolve all of their issues.

Another endorsement for the browning strike force. Have 3 running year round between 2 and 5 years old. 2 of them in a northeast Texas iron ore field, and one in se Texas pines. Never had a problem.


See y’all around the campfire.

I have used Primos for years with no issues. Don't know if they would

give you a quantity discount. Would not hurt to give them a call.
