I currently am running 16 DLC Covert cameras. The 2012 Black 60 for IR and the 2012 Reveal for flash are my favorites !

I started with all Stealthcams and because of their pitiful quality control and even worse customer service I switched to building my own Homebrews. If anything goes wrong with one I can easily fix the problem usually right in the field, this beats having to go through the hassle of returns and cameras only lasting until the warranty is up.

I used to use Stealthcams but the battery life was horrible. Currently I have a Bushnell and a couple of the Covert flash.

We've really liked the M80's for $99 we can't beat them for their value, I've had them on plot watcher all spring and they helped my daughter and I be in the right spot for the youth turkey hunt a few weeks ago.
I've went through a half dozen Cuddecraps, they just don't hold up. I've tried spypoint and that's been back to the factory twice I wouldn't waste the $$, I've had a Recon and that's been alright. The old I40 though noisy is on its 5th year and is probably getting close to 25,000+ pics.

Well I currently have two cameras a Moultrie I 4.0 and a Wildgame Innovations. I like the Moultrie one alot better because the batteries run alot longer. Been thinking about adding one this year ether another Moultrie or a DLC covert. Just with a musky season just right around the corner I'm going to have to wait a while.

I've run many different trail cams over the years but I've locked onto Reconyx for the last 3 to 4 years. For my area here at home, nothing beats them. I'm thinking that on my lease in WI however, several other cameras I've owned would do just fine where long distance triggering isn't as necessary. However, I'll stick with my Reconyx until I find something else that can beat them or I figure out how to make my own

I have used two different Moultrie cameras and a BuckEye Cam Apollo. The first Moultrie was one of their first cameras so that one doesn't much count these days. The second is the I-60, an old tank of a camera that still works pretty good these days. The BuckEye Cam Apollo has been great for me. Literally tens of thousands of pictures, left out pretty much year round with a solar charger and excellent trigger speed. Had it for several years now and the second battery just gave out this past winter. Just need to get a few dollars together to get a new battery and it will be up and running again soon.

I have a couple Bushnell Trophy Cam's, while I am very impressed with the picture quality there are too many bells and whistles that I have no use for, thus making them not very cost effective for me. I am looking for a cheaper camera that takes decent pics, no video or plot watcher or anything like that necessary. All I want is day and nighttime pics, color in the day time if possible, with date/time/temp and moon phase. Lookign like I might try the Primos Truth Cam 35 as a cost effective model

I have run Bushnell trophy cams, Cuddeback captures, and moultrie m-80's. I really like the battery life of the trophy cams. I like the night time color photos of the captures. I have only used the m-80 for one season. The battery life seemed to be sub-standard as compared to other cameras that use 8 AA batteries. Trophy cams have worked really well for me over the last 3 seasons. I would recommend them to anyone.

I have been using the DLC coverts for the past few seasons, and ordered four more this year!! I use them because they are compact, have great battery life, and take outstanding day/night time pics!
