Re: Trail cam suggestion...

You'll get lots of opinions on this.I've always liked Moultrie's and also had good experience's with bushnell Trophy cam's,and Scoutguard's.The new LTL acorn cam seems to have people very happy with it's performance.IR or flash is a personal preference but if the cam will be in a busy area,the IR will be less noticeable to people.I prefer the flash pics at night to IR.Here's a site that does a good job reviwing all the cams There are some new models getting ready to hit the market,too.Good luck,just remember the first cam always leads to more cams

Re: Trail cam suggestion...

make sure you get something that you can select the time between pics and number of pics per burst. Also look at battery life...........batteries over time can cost more than your camera

Re: Trail cam suggestion...

Heard nothing but good on the lil acron's but I myself use moultries. Not sure what the price is on the acorns, but for the quality of my moultries in comparison to the price, tough to beat! little over $110 for the D-55IR and little under $100 for the D-55 Flash. NOW, I did just have a guy (Wampire on HPA) buy a D-55 Flash and the Flash didn't work. He took it back and they gave him a new one and it works like a charm. As far as battery life, I've had my moultrie's out for about 7 months, taken thousands of pics/videos, and just now changed my first set of batteries. Good luck and hope this helped!
