    Here are a few shots from my first trail cam. I got some beautiful pictures of a fox and some does during this week's snow. Just thought I'd share as I love being able to see these guys now that I have a trail camera.

    Trail Cams
    Yeah LOL, It is a Sport LOL. We also have Trail Cam Contest on here so keep your Cool Pics...I find myself getting 'Married' to a particular spot once I get a Nice Buck on Film and that's something you SHOULDN'T do lol...I did get Lucky Last Nov. when A decent Buck just showed up on Film and I hunted 3 days in a Row with No Deer Sightings and then 1 Very Windy Day the Only deer I seen was Him as he stepped out at 80 yards in a Cut-Over...You can Go back in the Forums and read about that Hunt...I checked the Camera when I got there and he was there that Morning at 5:40 in the Rain and I shot him about 5:30 that same evening...Pretty Wild........Good Luck

    Cams
    The cams are great when they work. I bought 2 of the Wildgame cameras (a 1.3 & a 5.0 - both new) but neither of them took pics when I put an sd card in them. They took pics & stored pics on the internal memory but did nothing when I put in the 256mb sd card (tried a different card to make sure it wasn't the card). I have several Moultrie cams but they have issues as well - they take great pics but Moultrie seems to have a lot of issues w/ the led screens. I want to get a bushnell and/or a stealth cam and see how they are. They are a bit more expensive but seem to recieve less complaints.
    Anyway, I have two 6v Moultrie cams w/ the solar charging panels that I leave out just to see what's moving around in the neighborhood.

    Bushnell
    justintime, Brother I could sink a Boat with the Money I have wasted on Trail Cams and i might be stepping in a pile here but I would stay away from WildView, Wildgame and Stealth Cams myself!!! I now have 3 Bushnell Trophy Cams with 2 being the No Glows that I just bought 2 weeks ago on ebay for $149.99 Total Each!! I set them up in the yard and so Far no trouble but even as much as I love them I have had issues with them as well and had to send 2 back but each time they sent me the newer updated Version...Read your reviews...It will save you alot of trouble...Just Google 1 vs the other...Tons of Help before you waste your money!!!

    Cams
    Thanx GT - I've been lookin @ the reviews for several different cams also. Doesn't seem as though any of the are 'trouble free'. I guess one of the best things to look at is the maker's response to the customer. I wasn't real impressed w/ Moultrie's response. I sent them one of my cam's that the led screen had gone out on and they mailed it back to me saying it was not repairable. They did offer me a 'deal' on another cam but it is their oldest model and they have specials online on the newer models that weren't much more.
    I have 6 working cams right now (and 4 dead cams) but I would like to get a couple of the black out type like what you mentioned. Gotta save up some $$$ though. :)

    No Glow
    The New No-Glow is Nice!!! You can't seen NOTHING when it takes a Pic or Video at night...Keep a Eye out on Ebay over the summer and you can Find deals when hunting is the Last thing on someones Mind..I bought My Summit 180 Max SS Climber for $259.00 Shipped So I bought another 1 and never opened it and Listed it in Late Oct. and it Sold it for $369.00 and My Buddy shipped it for me so that's why I bought 2 new Cameras..The way I look at it...I don't have much in it...I know money is money but i really wanted another Camera lol

    Trophy Cam
    Yes Very!! These are a little bigger and take 12 batteries instead of 8 but they also have 41 LEDS and a brighter pic/video...I'll let ya know when I put 1 out how it does but I have a 8mp out right now on Video and it's been Flawless even with freezing nights. The viewing screen is a waste of money in my opinion..it's so small that it's hard to tell whats what...that's why i use the micro SD cards with the adapter and put it in my phone to view mt pics

    Thanks for sharing the cool pics!! They actually look good for the Wildgame cameras.....We have a couple but they are not that sharp and clear...We love using cameras though....You just never know what might show up...They are very helpful at seeing what is roaming around your spot lol...good or bad! I have tried several different kinds but I have to say Cuddeback is my favorite. Next would be the Bushnells but as far as picture quality, I have to give it to the Cuddebacks. The new attack works awesome with it's centered subject technology and how fast it reacts. They are pricey though but there are deals to be found. GT...seems to be a master at finding great deals.

    Love it
    I'm actually really impressed with this camera. It is the WGI WX6 Micro. It is picking up a few hundred pictures every 24 hours for me. Amazon had it on sale for $49.99, but it's already back up to $89.99. The picture quality is really good and the video is decent. This forum must downsize the pictures quite a bit. Here's the link in case anyone wants to keep an eye on them going on sale again:

    HankG,I will say that these Pictures are the Most Impressive I have seen from Wildgame...But didn't mean to step on your toes and For the Price you paid...You should be Happy..The Snow Picture is impressive in itself because If a Camera is Gonna go on the Blink, It's gonna be in the Colder weather...A friend of Mine Bought a Micro 6 I think it was for $40 on Clearance at Tractor Supply and He LOVES it also. Glad you Got a Good 1...Theres Pros and Cons in ALL of Them!!! Good Luck!!!

    I definitely didn't..
    I definitely didn't mean to imply I was offended! I understand this is a cheap camera and that there are much better ones out there. I just wanted to throw that link out there and mention that I have been impressed with it so far, especially for the money, in case anyone looking for a decent inexpensive trail cam stops by. Thanks for all the comments!

    Great vids
    Are those vids from the same wildgame cam? Funny how the shedding goes - I think all of the bucks around me have shed their antlers, at least I haven't seen a deer with a horn on its head in a couple weeks.
    Thanx for sharing the vids, looks like all of the wildlife is enjoying the salt block. :)

    Thanks! The videos and pictures are all from the same WGI WX6AC camera. I'm still new to deer hunting, but I thought I read it was kind of late for the antlers to not have shed yet. I guess I should be looking for that to happen any day now? I'm glad I caught them though because they are the first bucks I have caught myself.
