Replaced our ranch cams last year. Purchased several cuddebacks. Early morning pics from first light till bout 7:30 or 8am,are terrible. Can’t make out animals at all. Lens fogged up or covered with dew. Anyone else have this issue? Solution?

Do you have them mounted at least 3-1/2' to 4 ft. high?

You'll want to inspect them carefully to see that any fogging/moisture is occurring only on the outside as well.

Under certain climate conditions there isn't much that can be done about it. I'm in Deep East Texas (Pineywoods) and it is extremely humid here most of the year. Rapid temperature changes under high humidity will fog the outside of the lenses on my cameras on occasion. Mounting them as high as is practical can help.

Try tilting them down a little and get less of the sky in the frame. That’s helped me at some setups.
