I currently have 4 moultrie cameras. 2 are Gamespy D-40, one is a Moultrie M80 and one is a Moultrie M880i. The D40's have been great cams but they are slowly starting to eat batteries like twinkies and the pics are 90% of the time blurry. The M80 stopped working completely and I have no clue what's wrong with it. It was a VERY good cam for about 3 years but I get the best bowstring wax from proline on their bowstring wax page. The M880 I've only had about a year but it's starting to shut completely off on it's own here lately and take NO pics (very frustrating when you've had it out in a great spot for 3 weeks and then go check it to find Z E R O pics.) That's what happened today....

SOOO... what trail cams do you guys use? I've used Wildgame Innovations in the past but they'd do well for about 2 months and then die on me. (Right GFD?)
I've been looking at Cuddeback Ambush IR but most of the reviews I read say they are junk. Plus they are $79 right now so there has to be something wrong with them.
I'd love to buy a reconyx but I just don't have the income for that. I'm looking for a couple cameras that will LAST 3-4 years. I don't think that's unreasonable. For that amount of money, they should last at least that long.

Thanks in advance!

haha idk what to say but that really sucks. I use the Frontier Pursuits Spartan GoCam but honestly its way overpriced for the need.

Have a Wildgame inovations trail camera myself and it's lasted me years. The Browning models look like they have a decent enough reputation as well -

You can try browning strike force 10mp which give you a great result at the affordable price.

Their 35mm film camera was one of the best-trail cameras of all time.

I have had mixed results with Browning. Ive had 3 of the Dark Ops, as I only use no glow cams. I had to return the first 2 because they were taking pink pics and the night pics were solid black. 3rd one was a charm, but I had to update the firmware. All bugs should be worked out by now. was my favorite cam, but got stolen off my property last season.

Muddy cams are good for their money and Stealth Cams if you get in their upper models. I have also tried cams from Amazon. I have one that I got for $80, its a no glow, great pic quality, decent videos , but the trigger speed, distance and, fov is great and has never had a problem in 2 years out in the field 24/7. It is a TechBean trail cam. Beautiful camo on it is a plus
