    Game cam?

    Who has one and who can recommend one for me. I had a bear visit last night and critters every night and I want to see just what is out there when I am sound asleep. The critters stir up and dig in my compost every night and I am looking for a reasonably priced night visioned, motion sensor camera I can mount on a tree above the compost pile. Any recommendation is appreciated and I will share pictures here.

    I recommend either the Cabella's or Bass Pro game cameras. Each have different models with features that you may want or can live without. I have a higher end Cabella's model with an on board LCD screen for previewing your pictures, and two Bass Pro models without this feature. I like the on board LCD. Both work well during the day and at night, but the Cabella's one is better. I paid $ 230 for the Cabella's, and $100 on sale for the two Bass Pro cameras.

    Basically the more you are willing to pay the better your results, but I see no need for anything over 8 megapixels.

    Looks like the action shots will blurr. Is that typical? What price range for the bushnell. I appreciate seeing pictures of what each camera has taken!

    On when real close to the camera. The buck was a couple of yards away. List was about $200, but bought for about 1/2 that watching internet sales.

    Here are some day time shots:

    I just recently bought this Browning Cam
    Browning® Recon Force FHD 10MP Trail Camera : Cabela's

    I'm on the road, but can share some pics when I get back home midweek.

    I've also got older Moultrie, while it takes good pics, it also takes lots of pictures of anything that moves, including grass in the wind.

    I have a few cuddeback cameras. Not sure which models I have as all 4 are different cams. They all take good day pics. At night one hardly works do to a poor / weak flash. 2 take good pics and one takes very good pics.

    The one that works the best has the long range IR flash, 1/4 second trigger speed and is 20MP.

    I have one of the cheap Moultrie units - paid $50 for it off-season. Works great and a set of batteries lasts about 9 months even with taking a TON of pictures.

    I can clearly make out opossums, raccoons, coyotes, cats, deer, turkey, etc. at a range of about 15 yds at night.

    Behind the deer in this pic you can see my hunting blind - that's at about 30 yds.

    I had the same problem with the wind blowing grass. First time I put my camera out last year it took 10,000 pictures, filled the SD card, and drained brand new batteries. I had to move that camera and get new batteries. I think the SD card was 16GB (camera is stored at the farm barn, so I can't easily check)

    Of the 10,000 pictures I think I had 40 of turkeys and the rest blowing grass.

    Thanks for that. My local gun shop has the cheap Moultrie cameras on sale right now for $40. I figured this would be good enough for a first one to see how I like the idea.

    I don't necessarily need to see deer or turkey with the camera - I see enough from the windows of my house. But am still curious what else lurks around. Also I would like it as a pseudo security cam for 4-wheelers coming across the creek onto my property.
