Advice for Trail cameras

I've owned a wild game innovations camera for a year and it's starting to go retard...

So I need some advice from the OB experts of what's the best camera. This will be a gift for my father for Christmas. So what would y'all recommend. TIA

re: Advice for Trail cameras
I bought a Wildgame innovations as well and its a pice of crap. I never even put it out anymore.

I have 3 Moultries, all take good pictures and have good battery life. D55-IR is the model of 2 of them, cant remember the third. I have had them for 3 years now and no issues.

Agree. My wildgame is a year old and screwing up. I have the D55i moultrie also. I put batteries in it last January and keep it out all hunting season. It still has 50% battery left

re: Advice for Trail cameras
Primos or Moultrie

Personally, I prefer Primos. I've had about 7 of their cameras and they've all been solid. The only other brand that I've owned is Cuddeback. I will never again own a Cuddeback

My grandpa and uncle use Wild Game Innovations. They're happy with them but it doesn't take much to impress them. I find the quality of the photos and the durabality of the Primos cameras to be a really good bang for your buck


ETA: I've never owned a Moultrie camera, but I've read good things about them and I hope to give one a try soon

I have a Wildgame and it runs through batteries like no other. My next will be a Moultrie.

Wildgame innovations have worked great for us, and we use them a lot.

I came in here to bash Wildgame and I see it's already been done. My personal experience with Wildgame cameras has not been good. Moultrie doesn't take the prettiest pictures but the ones I have owned work well and are good on battery life.

re: Advice for Trail cameras
Moultrie is the best IMHO unless you are looking at spending big money on them

I agree that Wildgame sucks. I guess I got what I paid for, they are cheep unless you count the battery cost. I didn't even bother to put it out this year.

re: Advice for Trail cameras
I know some people who have had success with wild game, but more who haven't. I think I paid 70 for my Moultrie 6 years ago and it's still kicking. It's only 3 megapixels and not IR flash, but it takes good enough pics and is good on batteries

We've got several moultrie. We have the new ones with the hd and short videos and all that shite. Personally I like the older ones that just take a damn picture. When the hd setting is on it kills the battery

re: Advice for Trail cameras
Mine will take pics or video, but I never set it to video before. My only real complaint is the size of it, but all of them were big when I bought mine. Will be getting several more next season

re: Advice for Trail cameras
i bought 2 WGI a few years ago. had to send both back. had to send back one of the replacements they sent me. i now have two cameras, one wont take a pic if you do jumping jacks in front of it, the other takes all black pics at night.

i had a cuddeback that was solid for 8 years and just this year i cant get it to record a picture, it acts like it takes it but doesnt put anything on the card. i paid more fot the cuddeback, but it well outlasted the cheaper wildgame cameras.

bought a moultrie m880i i think, it has been good so far. setup is different and maybe slighlty more difficult than cudde and wildgame.
