    Looking to buy a game camera

    I was talking to my neighbor tonight and he mentioned that a pack of coyotes has moved into one of the old mine shafts around our properties. I would like to get a game camera to track them and see if I can find a good place to thin them out. So what are your recommendation? What brands and features should I be looking at? I would rather not spend more than $50-60 if there isn't a good reason to.

    Thanks

    Mike

    Well I did some scouting this morning. I found the old coal bunker that my neighbor was telling me they are using as a den.

    I think rather than a game camera, invest in some calls. Coyotes will be easier to kill if they are coming to you.

    I would be willing to take recommendation on calls as well. I just wanted to verify that they are living in the bunker before I spent money on a call.

    Game Camera Recomendations please!

    Just bought two new Moultrie 880c and out of the box they are both DOA! Now I have three other out in the woods for a second season that work fine????? Anyone got a good review on reliability for a brand that I should switch loyalty to? Thanks.

    I prefer to live in ignorant bliss not knowing how many big ones are out there. Makes it easier to harvest the small ones.

    Sorry, I do not have a specific recommendation for you. I talked to a buddy of mine with a nice piece of property that is basically deer Mecca and he said that he buys what ever is on sale at Wal-mart.

    I don't scout to hunt, rather I scout to view on my Face Book page. Have quite a following.

    I bought the "best Browning" camera Academy Sports had (according to the sales guy) and was very disappointed with them. They were advertised as being able to take pictures at 40 feet in the dark but couldn't do it at 15 feet. Don't remember the exact model #/ name but I returned them and didn't replace them with any others. Good luck.
