Looking at getting a couple. Recommendations as this stuff is new to me? Looking at infrared flash and wondering how noticeable if at all the flash is?

I have two primos truth 35, it does make a subtle clicking noise, but trigger speed is fast. Good price too. If you are really lookin go to www.chasingame.com they have reviews on all trail cams

I have been using Stealth Cams with the IR Flash. Great pictures without the flash, just a red glow that is hardly noticable.

True that music. I have had one stolen that was in the middle of nowhere. No roads or public access for over a mile.

Well that's just silly. Bigfoot can climb trees unless it's too small, then he/she just pushes them over to get whatever's up there.

My dad and I have a Cuddeback and two Moultries. The Cuddeback is FAR superior. Better picture quality, better trigger. The Cuddeback will have 200-300 pics while the Moultries nearby will have 40-50. Deer don't mind the flash and we'll end up with many pics of the same deer camped out in front of the camera at night. We plan to pick up another Cudde before spring. When I bought the Cuddeback I also bought a bear box for it. It's worth it to me for a spendy camera since the bears like to mess with them.

Thanks Musicman. It seems the Cuddeback Capture I have has been or is being phased out. I'm shopping for one on ebay although I'm sure the newer Cuddebacks are good too. Seems the new ones have IR flash but I don't have any reservations about a normal flash.
We explored a new spot last hunting season that needs a camera during the spring and summer. Should hold some nasty blacktails.

One of the many big 2010 bucks that got away.


The buck I killed in 2010 a couple of weeks after this picture. I caught a running glance of this buck in the regular season, saw him through a bunch of brush the first day of the late hunt, then got a clean shot at him the second day of the late hunt.

Looks like you found a nice crossing spot for that little creek....looking forward to seeing more pics in the next months...that ones a bruiser...but the forky would be dead to rights if I saw him.
Thanks for sharing!
