I have always used Primos Bullet Proof cameras. They are very easy to use slapped SD card in and go ( plus they were cheap). Seems like they stopped making them. What's another option.

Wild game innovation but there cheap and you'll only get about 2 years out of them before they crap out. Picked up 2 3 packs at Academy a few years back for $99.00 per pack. For game cameras I don't get carried away with 12, 15, 20 Mega pickles because your gonna look at the SD card then format and start over.

Browning Command Ops Pro Trail Camera 16 MP works good but changing the sd card is awkward with big cold fingers.


One shot is all it should take.

I've had good luck with Bushnell Trophy Cams.

I have Brownings and Bushnells, but I just bought my 2nd Tasco. I'm starting to realize that they're good enough for what I need. $28.88 on Amazon.

Yeah WGI is pretty simple. Manually setting the date time is pretty easy.
But like Angus said, the most I ever got out of a WGI Camera is 3 years i think

More about the old Moultries. About 5 years ago I bought one and have used it every year. I have 6 feeders and 7 or 8 cams of different types. Last year at the end of the season I pulled all the cams except the Moultrie. Its in a field with a feeder about 100 yards from the house. I finally pulled it last week. Batteries were dead but hadn’t leaked. When I got to the house I found that ants were nesting in it. I cleaned it and put in new batteries and a card. It still works. I don’t remember any of the others except Cuddebaks lasting that long.

I've been using the M880i moultries for years but i guess they quit making them. I bought a knockoff from amazon a few weeks ago but doubt it lasts long. Time will tell


It's true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance.

Primos bullet proof cameras have been working for us for several years. Natchez Shooters still had some, ran sales beginning of year. Easy operating good battery life.

I like the Moultrie M888. I think they are similar age to the 880, and were also discontinued. When I realized I couldn't find them in stores anymore I found a couple on ebay. I use them to connect to my moultrie modem, which has also been discontinued now.

I saw a few weeks back moultrie has released a couple new camera/modem combo.

I really like the Browning cameras. Inexpensive and easy to use.

I’ve had real good experience with stealth cams, been running three for 6-7 years.

I got back into deer hunting 12 years ago and started with a Reconyx plus a couple of less expensive cameras. Once my "discards" cost exceeded the price of another Reconyx, I decided to stick with Reconyx and haven't looked back. I have one that is 12 years old and going strong, and two others 8 years and 3 years old and I don't miss a click.

Bushnell bought Primos, no dog in the fight, Bushnell CelluCore 20 is $130ish with a solar panel from Roger's Sporting Goods, easy to use camera and app. There are 11 in use in my app, side by side with some bigger named cameras, the cheap Bushnell is getting it done. $15 monthly for unlimited pictures and video, including high resolution.
