    He is sporting some long brow tines. That should be a good buck once season starts.

    I often wonder if these No flashes are worth the money. This thing spooked also as you can see. I might really look into spending some serious money on a trail cam that has no light at all. I can't remember who makes them but there spendy.

    Steve - Reconyx makes a cam with no visible glow or flash. I believe the model is the RC60. Todd just got one and loves it. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get you a price.

    Here's a link to their website (not the greatest) with some info on the RC60 - http://www.reconyx.com/page.php?id=61 They take CF cards just like the Cuddebacks and have a "no glow" filter that eliminates any light from being emmitted during nighttime photos.

    From what Todd has told me the setup is super simple, the camera is easy to mount, has a great trigger speed, and from what I've seen the photos are top-notch quality. Go to Cabela's and do a search for RC60 and read the reviews, they're all great. So far I haven't seen or heard a single bad thing about the camera. In fact, Todd is buying two more of them this week and replacing a few of his Predators.

    Retail on the RC60 is $599.99 at Cabela's. I can do $569.99 for any Bowhunting.com member that is interested. Retail on the RC55 is $549.99, I can do $519.99 on that one.

    I just set 4 cameras out last week and turned the flash off and set them for day time only. It is amazing but they can still spot the camera and don't seem to trust it. I'm going to start brushing them in better and see if that helps.

    I tried that too this year. I think they can hear these no flash cudde's take pictures also and then with the combination of the red lights going off it scares the **** right out of them. Problem is most of the pics I get of nice bucks is at night.

    I went and spent some money on a different trail cam the other day. I picked up a Reconyx (RC60). It has a filter over the lens that doesn't allow the red light to be seen and they also said the camera is quite. We'll see I guess if it works better. No video mode on this camera. It has a trigger burst instead.

    Well Bols it works. I checked it today and found out I had the sensitivity set way to high. The wind blew, the camera took pics. 120 pictures of grass!!:smash: I'm not blaming the camera, Its my own fault. It might take me a time or 2 to figure it out but I'll get it!!;) The grass pics were nice and clear though.:tu:

    One of my Cuddies took 206 pics and 206 videos! It ate 25% of my batteries! I trimmed some leaves hoping that would help, we'll see. Of the 206 only 18 had deer on them, some were very good! :cool:

    I definitely agree with you 7mag. I'm guessing or thinking he's a 3.5 in this video and come next year he should be a solid 140" class buck if not bigger. Just got to get him through the gun season without getting shot.
