I run 4 trail cams, they are Moultrie IR game spy 4.0
It uses 6 D cell batteries that last about 4 to 6 months, and 2gb SD card which gives me 3600 pics. It has 72 IR LEDs for awsome night pics. I use my Digital camera for viewing the trailcam pics.

When moisture (either rain or snow) gets into a firearms barrel, nothing good takes place. A couple rain drops down there can change the point of impact drastically and a barrel jammed with snow after a...
