    I've read a lot of articles claiming that the wild game nation boys hunt in a pen just to endorse there products. Is that true

    I don't know if that's true or not. But in my opinion their show is bad enough on its own for me not to watch it.

    I'm not sure about that, but I did hear it's true that if you don't use it, you lose it. Can anyone confirm?

    No clue. I know I don't like any of their products, pen or no pen.

    I sometimes hunt in a pine... which has nothing to do with hunting in a pen. Just thought I'd share.
    You're welcome.

    The old man is a loud mouth, the sons are leeches. Their products junk. I've owned 3 of their trailcams and every one had the same problem.....motion sensor gave out after 1 season and were all different models.

    You might have a hard time convincing Tom Miranda.

    I'm always amazed how people tend to have such different results using the same product. I've owned at least 10 of the cheapest WGI cameras they sell and have never had an issue with any of them. The pic quality isn't the best but I didn't expect it to be when I bought such a low priced camera.

    Do not watch many hunting or fishing shows (sorry outdoor channel) because they are just long ads for some products. Often they are hunting on highly managed properties if not high fence farms which I will never get to hunt. To many people on youtube filming REAL hunts for me to watch to spend time watching ads.

    I have three WGI cameras and they provide me with the photos and information I need and since they are cheap and I hunt public ground and pay for my toys with the sweat of my brow and skill of my hand they will have to do.

    My cable package does not include outdoor programs, which serves me just fine. Never heard much good about the WG people or products, but a buddy runs their cameras on his farm and likes them. I have never spent a nickle on their line and likely never will. As far as hunting high fence.....that seems to be a stock in trade for the genre. :confused:

    A friend of mine got me the Trail Tab, I must say I do like it, no problems viewing any cards. Cant say anything else about their other products though!

    My 2cents! I never cared for 5he Wildgame boys either. There reality / hunting show isn't very good. I do use several of their trail cams. Some are old and still work, some quit. I have to say that many if the shows are filmed on highly managed properties, which is more challenging than a pen but nowhere near as difficult as hunting high pressured public land. By the way, those cheap Wildgame cameras are perfect for hunting public land or anywhere where they may get stolen. I'd rather be out $50 than $150.

    I'm assuming that was said in jest, but I'm one of the dolts that DVR a plethora of hunting shows and noticed Triple Creek outfitters is a favorite stop for quite a few of them.

    Not saying they are pen or not, just noticed that one particular place gets named a lot.
