    Looking to purchase my first trailcam. Know absolutely nothing about them, concerning which brands, features, specs etc. I should look for. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    I just picked up a new browning 10MP camera for about $120 bucks off of amazon. I bought it cause a buddy got one last year and it was the best camera on our deer hunting property. Good battery life, good photo quality day and night.

    Get good batteries and the biggest SD card they will hold.

    I you can, get a wireless trailcam. They are a little pricey, but it sure is nice to get pictures sent to your phone or email.

    Unless you are in one stand and see that the deer are in the other.

    Surprisingly the Bushnell trail cams are pretty good and they are cheap as well. I have several brands and I think $ for $ the Bushnell is the best (this is the only product I can claim that on lol).

    Yes that would be my luck. Was not aware that trailcam pics could be sent to my phone. That is a feature I would like for sure. Thanks Widg

    I use em for work and live in the camp of "cheaper is better" Just picked up a couple (4) Moultrie 5's at Walmart for $49 each. Still image, video and plot watcher. Can't ask for more for my $49.

    Have had several different brands and have sold most off and stuck with the Bushnell. Between the quick trigger speed (don't get butts and back) and the long lasting battery life - I know I can count on them to deliver the pictures that help me make my hunting better.
