When you start to look at trail cameras it is just like going to the candy store, there is that much selection out there. The first thing you need to consider is what is going to be your price range. You can get one for as little as $50.00 or go for one that does everything for $200.00. You also need to decide if you want to take pictures at night with a infa-red flash or will a standard flash work for you. Also is a memory card necessary or can you get by with only 20 or 30 pictures. That along if you want a viewer on the camera or are you going to take the camera or memory card home to view the pictures
You also need to consider where you are going to place them. I know of users that have lost well over a $1000.00 in cameras over the years to people that have found them and taken them. You need to figure that since they are usually on public ground they are considered abandoned by the law. I even know of a few that have been picked up by BLM rangers since they are considered abandoned property even if they are attached to a tree or fence post.
As for cameras I like and have a couple of Moultrie with a infa-red flash. They take great pictures either at night or during the day and they are easy to set up. They also use a memory card and can hold a lot of pictures since I'll usually leave them for months at a time.
Also just about any of the manufactures out there have good cameras but as I said you need to decide on what you really want and then go look at them.
There are still some who insist a scope is not needed for the type hunting they do, ignoring the advances of the last 150 years in optical sights. (Even the ultra-conservative US Army has adopted optical sights.) The idea that in some special circumstances open iron sights or aperture (peep) sights might be more useful is not lost on me, but with the inevitable advance of age comes the reduction in visual acuity needed for using iron sights.
I believe that many who completely resist the idea of...
