    Default Game or Trail Cameras

    I am looking for a game camera, want infrared. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I did see the positive reviews of the Stealth Cams on some other threads, and wondered about battery life and durability.

    Does anyone have experience with the Bushnell Trophy cam?

    I have the Stealth Rogue Infared and it is incredible. Great pics. I have 1/2 of the detector blocked due to being too sensitive. Initially it was taking 1600 pics a week -- some 1/3 mile away as cars went down a road. It now takes approx 100 pics a week. The C batteries will only take 800 or so pics. Mine now runs off a 12v lawn mower battery that I charge every 4 months at most. Very cheap to operate!

    Battery Cable so you can hook to any 12v battery..
