What brand and model trail cameras are using?

What type of trail camera are you using?

I have a mix between Bushnell Trophy cams and Moultrie M-80's. I like the infrared especially on trails. The flash units seem to sometimes cause the deer to move their travel slightly. But I have a few older flash units I use occasionally on feeders.

I have bought 5 different models of the WildGame Innovation camera's and all 5 have FAILED in less than 5 months, each one! I bought an IR4, IR5, Red 4, Micro Red 6, and finally the new Pulse 10. I bought the IR4 and 5 last year, quit working half way threw the season. Got the Red 4 for bear hunting this year, quit working after 4 days. Got the Micro 6 for a present and it quit working after a month. Finally i tried one more time and bought the Pulse 10 and it quit half way threw this years season. THEY ARE ALL JUNK!

So i went out and spent some hard earned money and bought 3 Bushnell Trophy Cam HD! Have used them the rest of the season this year, and STILL have full battery life. Every WildGame camera, i had to switch out the batteries at least twice.

Spend the money and get the Bushnell ones, just amazing!

I agree with Smitty, Bushnell cams are high quality and great additions to hunting gear. However, Moultrie also makes very good products and their cams tend to be significantly less than Bushnell. Both very good cam makers though.

I haven't had any problems but that's frustrating those aren't working out for you. I have a Moultrie Game Spy as well for a trail cam and I got to say it's been great.
