I have a wildview and the old adage that you get what you pay for is very true. It will take photos, but trigger time is slow so unless the deer is stationary or moving toward or away from the camera you are not going to get the picture.

I put a mineral block in front of mine to entice the deer to stop so their picture could be taken.

For $80 it is probably worth the money, but just know its limitations before buying.

If you don't mind 35mm, the old stealth cam is cheap and takes pretty good pics for about $40. I also use a couple Moultrie game spy's that are digital and do a fair job. Battery life is bad but I added solar panels and rechargeable batteries.
CVC is right about finding a way to stop the deer or set the camera where the trail comes in toward the cam. Also, make sure the sun does not trigger the sensor. Set camera facing north.
