    Cuddyback has a new one coming out that should be around that price tag. Great features. I don't have the name in front of me but if you hit their website I bet it's there.

    yeah!!!! its the cuddeback attack.......... goes for around $250 i think. im so torn on what info to trust when it comes to trail cams. I read chasingame.com on camera reviews and they bash a certain camera and then i read reviews from real hunters that may like it. I tend to listen to guys out there like me that are real life hunters .....hence 3dshoots.com
    but I i would like to know more on that cuddeback attack cam

    Some may like the cudde backs but Ive had nothing but Heck with them. Every other yr I am having to send them in to get fixed and its always $75 or more. In my IR camera I have already invested about $800 in it. Now they want me to trade it in for a capture IR and give them $150 or close to that. Rip off. I paid over $400 new for my IR. Its only 5 yrs old. Well Ive owned 1 for 5 yrs anyway cause this 1 has been sent to them 2 times and it needs to go back again. I will never own another cudde back mainly cause there customer service and reliability sucks. Plus my cheaper moultries have outlasted them. I have never sent 1 back for repair. The only thing is the cudde backs trigger speed is next to none but corn scatters will make any deer stop to eat.

    i like my moultrie it has the centered shot on it so every pic the whole deer is in the frame that way insted of a bunch of tails and nose pics i can actually see what it is. and i agree ive had probs with cuddebacks.

    I bought a Tasco last year just to put in the yard and find out whats been digging in my trash.
    Turns out it was the neighbors cat.

    I bought 2 more. They're about $99.00, and the quality of the picture was great at night about 10 -14 feet. I decided to try it out in the woods for scouting, and it performed flawlessly, I left it out all season (Sept. - Dec.) and didnt have to change the batteries once. Its about the same size as the Bushnell cams, and has alot of the same features.

    I've been looking at those really hard, price has droped a bit, but even at a C note each, you get a 5 mega pixel cam that runs 6 months on a couple of AA batteries. Will probably be my next trail cams, unless something better and cheaper pops up.

    I have a moultrie i bought at cabela's a few years ago. It's not an IR but it takes really good pictues, easy to set up and does video too. You can get it now for i think $100 or less. Check all the stores online (Cabela's, Gander Mountain, Bass Pro Shops, etc.) The usually run good sales for the spring turkey season and most times shipping is free .
