    Which brand do you guys find to be most cost effective, I only have one Browning dark ops. I usually do alot of public land scouting and $150 a cam is too much.(Not counting the cost of a python lock, metal case, batteries and SD cards) Especially if they can be stolen pretty easy. I really don't care about super clear pics. As long as I can see its a deer and count the points I am good.

    I have about 4 of the stealth cam rx24 I think is the model. They are small and I can hide them well. At less than $100, it's pretty good for public land.

    I've got a couple of moultrie cams that aren't great but take decent enough pics. Think they were in the $60-$70 range. Also got a couple Browning cams which I really like, $120-$150. I hunt private property and still had a camera stolen before so I'm kinda Leary about spending $200+ for a trail cam. Like you, i just use my cams to take inventory and track movement, so I don't need anything fancy

    I now have several different brands of cameras. I'm not sure which I like the most. They are all small and pretty good on batteries.

    I'm pretty busy this week at work. I may not make it on here as much as normal. I'm taking 3 days off next week to make it 9 days in a row. I'm planning on hunting quite a bit! I'll be in training the following week.

    I have a couple cheap Browning command ops that have done real good so far this year, I had to add 4 cam's this year, to get back to 12. None stolen last year but 2 crapped out, (both stealth cams on there second year). Seems they are all hit or miss...I've been running 10-12 cam's a year for 10 year's now, I normally have 1-2 stolen and 1-2 crap out every year. I have a $69 wildgame that is on year 6 and still working flawlessly, but that's not the norm for the cheap wildgame's, lol.

    I use mine for inventory, to locate the hottest food source, to find a buck's bed (That's how I killed this year's buck), to monitor doe group's, to scout this year for next year. But mostly for study.

    I owe the discovery of "thermal hubs"..."social hubs"..."hub circuits" and the key rolls they play in a deers world to trail cam's....and much, much more.

    I am going to buy your first book, but I want it autographed as well.

    Your skills are astounding, and you just continually feed yourself more and more information. How you process it all and put it together is incredible.

    If I only had half the knowledge and insight...

    Hahaha, thank you for the kind words....but I'm just like everyone else. I just have a good eye for detail...I love the whitetail deer...and I'm obsessive compulsive to the extent that I've been committed a couple times, lol

    Not just kind words, only truth. You not only contain the knowledge, but love to share it.

    I remember several years ago when you started a reading maps and such tutorial thread.

    You have a gift that feeds your obsession would probably be the best way to put it.

    Seeing that pile of cams and knowing it is only half has me chuckling now. I see you picking up a small fork shed and monitoring that area to see what he becomes :lol:

    There are a lot of great hunters on this site, you are easily among the top of the ranks. It's November 14th and you are gearing up for 11 months from now.

    Well... I was going to go hunting this morning but my parents won't let me because of the red on the radar. It sucks how quickly Mother Nature can mess things up. But I have been hunting in a blind with my mentor when there was a tornado running around and we were getting like 35mph winds Lol! I'll probably head out to the same spot I was going to sit this morning around 1:00 because that's when the storms are supposed to stop. Good luck to whoever goes out this morning!
