    Last year, I purchased a 2014 bushnell agressor, and it was complete junk. This year, bushnell really stepped up their game. Their 2015 line has the fastest trigger speed on the market, and the pictures are in a whole new league. If you guys haven't seen these yet, I would check them out on trailcampro.com. I really think this year bushnell is gonna give reconyx a run for their money? Anybody have experience with this new line or bushnell in general and feel the same? I ordered mine yesterday and I will post pics as soon as I get mine in. If you guys have any bushnell pictures or knowledge, please share them and what line you have used in the past.

    The two Bushnell trophy cams I have are junk, their pic quality was okay, they just wouldn't hold up in the field. One started taking pics non-stop, the other one just stopped working. They better have fixed their reliability issues rather than focusing on pic quality. The trophy cams weren't/aren't cheap either.

    I have a 2015 Aggressor but not the No Glow (I'm not a No Glow fan for deer hunting applications) and it's the best camera I've ever used. 2015 is the first year for the Aggressor though, 2014's and before were just Trophy Cams and I thought they were junk. I also have a Browning and a few new model Cuddebacks. For once, I feel that all my cameras are very good cameras. If I could just trade my Black Flash Cuddeback for a second long range IR I would be happy

    I have the E series I think. The really small ones that are new. Very good and simple camera. I like my long range IR way better than my Black Flash for me. The 20MP (along with all other manufacturers high megapixel ratings) is a hoax. They're just interpolated which isn't needed. That's why Reconyx is rated so low on MP because they don't interpolate their images which is q good thing. The trail camera market has become so obsessed by high MP printed on boxes it's ridiculous but that's another discussion for another day.

    The great thing about a Cuddeback is you don't have to sift through 150 pictures of squirrels and blue jays. They have a two year full warranty of registered online and a 5 year 30% replacement policy. You don't have to keep a receipt either because it saves the date batteries are first put in the camera. Great customer service.

    The Browning is a great camera as well. You can control more settings with the Cuddeback though. Hands down the Aggressor is currently my favorite though. You can do so much with it.

    I have 2 Bushnells out in the wood right now. Surprisingly I've never had any major issues. One is a 2011 trophy cam and the other is a black flash I think 2013.

    Actually the one issue I did have is when I would go check the camera the date/times would all be reset back to factory when I know I've set it. It still takes pictures though which I've found odd. I think next year i'm going to replace them both just because some of the cameras out now are even better.

    I have the same problem with mine. I found out it is the batteries, they wiggle around in the case and lose contact and it resets the clock. I take a piece of cardboard and cut to size and lay on top the batteries. Then when you close the cover it holds the batteries snug. I have not had the problem since.

    I'll try to get some pics for you in a few days. They're awesome cameras. You can choose the strength of the LEDs for your flash so you can really dial the pictures in. I love that feature. As well as adjustable sensitivity

    I love how these camera companies advertise no glow when they actually put off as much light as a flash. I took two cameras and set them up on a lick and I couldn't believe how much the infrared was lighting up the woods. you can't see it with a human eye but my other camera captured it. and must be the deer see it as well. still like it so other hunter don't see it.

    I have a trophy cam and it bleaches out the pictures bad.

    That's not an issue with the aggressor! You can control the strength of the flash!

    I have a no glow camera and I've walked right up to it in pitch black dark and I couldn't see anything. Not even a faint red glow

    Update checked my low glow agressor after 6 weeks. Filled card in 1 day of grass blowing. Turned it off went back through setting new card let it sit 1 week. Full card day 2. Had 2 night pictures of deer and you can barley tell its a deer its so blury. Very dissapointed. I stuck the cam in the woods so ill see but not very happy with it especially for a $200 camera.
