This is just a thought. Give us the type of camera you are using that way those of us who don't have one yet can get an idea of what we might want to get.

I've got that Moultrie 4.0. It is a flash camera, not an IFR, but seems to work OK. I would like it to be a bit more responsive, but for the price I can't complain. I know lilwes has the same one.

I am looking at the Moultrie 5.0 outfitter as Cabelas has it on their web-site for $79.95. I just thought I would get one for the fun of it. They have the 5.0 outfitter with the built in viewer also on sale.

Braz is right, I have two of them and for the price I can't complain. I have quite a collection of pictures from my two cams and sometimes they aren't as responsive as I'd like (as Braz stated) but other times they'll snap pictures of birds & squirrels flying/running by. If you're going to have it mounted on public land I would suggest an infrared model so the flash doesn't attract other hunters. Also I wish that I could hook up one of the small solar panels to mine so I wouldn't have to replace the batteries as often. I've got one of the little solar panels on my feeder and I've never had to touch the battery since I installed it a few months ago.

Braz and lilwes I would like to thank you for the information that you gave me. I ordered the Moultrie 5.0 from Cabelas this morning. I want the camera for using at my camp this next year on my summer job as a campground host, I am not at the camp all the time and for some unknown reason firewood bundels seem to disappear when I am away as there is noway to lock them up. Again thanks---jim

Jim, I htink that is going to do it just fine. It won't flash in the day time, and if you set it for three pictues, you should be able to "capture" the culprit.

Actually Braz, I'd put the camera on video mode and hope the culprit is stealing the wood during the day. If he/she is stealing the wood at night, then Jim might end up losing the wood AND the camera if the flash is going off... :D

I haven't use the video mode and never thought about it. Great idea. And you're right about the flash at night. Probably during the day when nobody is around.
