Thread: Best trail camera under 250?

  1. #1

    Best trail camera under 250?

    I am looking to buy a new trail camera. I spent my money on a wild game innovations and it broke after a year. Now I am looking to spend a little but more money hopefully finding a camera that will last. I am looking for something with ir, long range, wide detecting area, and something under 250. Can everyone tell me there opinion on what trail camera they like and why. I would really appreciate it. Thanks

    Scoutguard is a good commercial but for a little under $250 you could get a homebrew. 12-Ringer is one of the builders on here.

    for $250 you can get 2 Moultrie I40's. i get an average of 6-7 months on batteries (which will very depending on the amount of pic's you get) and they take great pic's. i bought a BTC when they first came out and wish i used the money to but two I40's now.

    I have a trespasser screwing up my spot with 2 daily dog walks right through my property. Lots of does and fawns and one very small buck. I don't have any good deer on the cam yet.
