In my mind, you can't beat

In my mind, you can't beat the Moultrie D-50 or D-55.  Depending on when you look at them, and if they are on sale or not, you can get them for between $79-$99 on Cabelas.  Also, Moultrie has their own site.  Look at "Internet Specials" and they have alot of refurbished cameras for 40-50% off.  they still come with the 1 year warranty.

Thanks

Thanks for telling me this. I would have ended up getting some exspensive camera that i was unsure of. But im definetly going to look into cablelas and the website where i could possibly purchase a camera that is 40% off. Thanks again for the help!

No problem.  I just did a search and it looks like Bass Pro has the D-55 in Camo for $90 total (with shipping) now.  Not a bad deal at all.

Also, here is the link for the Internet specials.  There are some okay ones on there now.  They change almost weekly though.

I don't know if you have a Sams club, but I've seen a two pack of wildview game cams for about $100.  Wildview isn't fancy but they work.

I know this is going to bring

I know this is going to bring up different views than I have but one thing I would caution you about is the use if a flash camera. Now, I'm talking about my hunting area that has a lot of pressure but the deer become shy of the flash cameras. They'll visit a couple of times but then they bypass the cameras toget where they're going.
Since I've started using the IR cameras, I don't see this as a problem. I have a higher frequency of visits and visitors. They seem more inquisitive of the camera and all those little red LEDs.
That being said, I would reccommend the IR Moultie game cameras. Yes, the Cuddebacks are good camera but have you seen the price. You can get two or three of the Moulties if you find a deal. I don't know about you but I can always use another camera to put in a honey hole.
Hope this helps. Good luck in your search.

Here is my take on the use of

Here is my take on the use of a flash.  It has been debated and I am not sure if there is conclusive evidence to support the theory that it is a problem.  But and it is a bit but, with the relatively inepensive IR cameras available, why take the chance?  Just get one that does not use a flash and then you don't have to worry if it will cause deer to shy away or not.  Pretty simple inexpensive solution to what may or may not be a problem.
